Primary and secondary microbial adhesion onto solid surfaces has been the onset of development of a mature biofilm in aqueous environments that is predominantly the mode of bacterial contamination and spread of diseases. Adhesion and co-adhesion assays are therefore useful in understanding the adhesive interactions between microorganism and its surfaces. Various factors influence cell adhesion and biofilm formation, depending on aqueous medium and the type of microorganism in place. Similarly, factors such as ionic strength, pH and temperature are vital factors that influence cell growth and surface attachment. Different methods are available for testing adhesion and coadhesion assays such as macroscopic methods, microscopic methods, steady state and kinetic turbidometric methods, mathematical methods and slide based. However, out of these, parallel plate flow chambers (PPFC) are reportedly convenient and easy to use.
