    Besides the planktonic way of living, microbes are able to adhere to surfaces or interfaces and to form organized communities, so-called biofilms, which are embedded in a matrix of extracellular polymeric substances that they have produced. These communities are beneficial to humans as microflora colonising surfaces of the human body. They also form an integral part of many biotechnologies, including industrial production and sewage water treatment. On the other hand the growth of biofilm can cause many problems. In medicine the biofilm formation allows microorganisms to colonize the surfaces of implants or biological surfaces (e.g. native valve endocarditis). It also protects the microbial cells from attacks by the immunity system as well as from the effect of antibiotics. Therefore, the biofilms are considered to be important virulence factor. The characteristic features of the biofilm infections, especially long-persistence and high resistance to antibacterial/antifungal agents, complicate therapy.
