Biofilms are organized structures, primarily made of exopolysaccharides, water, and microbes, that are formed by one or several species of bacteria attached to solid surfaces.
Strains can also assume a rugose phenotype (identifiable on culture by a characteristic rough/wrinkled appearance), in which the microorganism produces large quantities of an amorphous exopolysaccharide, leading to formation of a biofilm that is resistant to chlorine, UV light, and other standard disinfectants (19).
