Figure 5: Quantification and microscopic analysis of biofilm formed by recombinant M. fortuitum strains. (a) Crystal violet assay, (b) CFU counting, and (c) photomicrographs of the biofilm-forming cells stained using basic fuchsin (Scale bar = 20 μm) showed similar biofilm formation by VC, HS, and HA strains. Statistical significance was checked by Student's t-test, in reference to the control strain VC. ** denotes P < 0.01. CFU: Colony-forming units, VC: Vector control
