Lorin, Daniela; Teusdea, Valer; Mitranescu, Elena; Muselin, Florin; Dumitrescu, Eugenia; Stancu, Adrian; Militaru, Dumitru; Cristina, Romeo Teodor. The Hazardous Activity of Yeasts Embedded in Biofilm and Planktonic Estimated Through the Effectiveness of four Commonly Used Biocidal Conditionings. Materiale Plastice, 54(2), pp. 239-243, 2017.

Abstract: The aim of study was to analyse the activity of four biocides. Assessment was made using the methodology described by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI); Antifungal Susceptibility Testing of Yeasts, M27-A3 Approved Standard, in: Candida sake, C. albicans, C. lusitaniae and Rhodotorulla rubra. The outcome, related to the culture2 s cut-off value of optical density (O.D.) was analysed statistically (p = 0.05 or lower) proving that Candida albicans was capable ofgenerating strong biofilms, in the resistance setting (p = 0.001).

Keywords: biocides; fungi; biofilm; resistance
