Rodriguez et al. (2008) used this method to show that the maximum pull off force for polyethylene was significantly higher than silicon dioxide probes from L. monocytogenes biofilms, suggesting that the biofilm adhesion to hydrophobic surfaces was stronger than a hydrophilic surface when measured at a cellular level. AFM has also been used to measure the cohesive forces within a biofilm by scan‐induce abrasion technique. In this technique a topographic image of the biofilm is obtained at a low applied pressure (setpoint 1 nN), which allows for imaging without disrupting the biofilm structure.

Coli and Legionella pneumophila reduced biofilm development. Many respiratory proteins in C. jejuni are transferred through the TAT secretion system (Posey et al. 2006). Kassem et al. (2012) investigated how respiratory proteins influence biofilm production at 37 and 42°C. Mutation of formate dehydrogenase (fdhA) reduced motility more at 42°C than at 37°C. Biofilm production by methylmenaquinol:fumarate reductase (mfrA) mutant was reduced under anaerobic conditions at 42°C. On the other hand, under microaerophilic conditions, ΔmfrA enhanced biofilm production more at 42°C than at 37°C.

Because of its ability to form protective biofilms, C. jejuni may survive in the environment. Its biofilm may contribute to persistence in poultry, fresh produce, and other foods. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that attach to each other and to surface (O’Toole et al. 2000). The transition from planktonic cells to biofilm happens in response to environmental stresses (Lenz et al. 2008; Parsek and Singh 2003; Pratt and Kolter 1998; Prigent‐Combaret et al. 2001). Biofilms formed by C. jejuni may also arise in the gastrointestinal tract of animals.
