Table 1 Frequency of antibiotic resistance of MRSA strains and biofilm

From: Screening of genes encoding adhesion factors and biofilm production in methicillin resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from Palestinian patients

Antibiotics Weak biofilm producer (0.07 < ODs ≤ 0.14) Moderate biofilm producer (0.14 < ODs ≤ 0.28) Strong biofilm producer (0.28 < ODs) Total (N = 248)
