Objective: Biofilm was shown on ocular abiotic surfaces such as contact lenses, intra-ocular lenses, glaucoma shunts and corneal sutures. The aim of this study is to compare success of Microtiter plate (MTP) and Congo Red Agar (CRA) methods in showing biofilm formation of S.epidermidis isolates that were obtained from conjunctiva regarding presence of icaA gene locus and multi-drug resistance.
