Modulation of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm by electromagnetic radiation

" The aim of this study was to examine the effects of EMR on development of bacterial biofilm. Microtitration plates with four strains of Staphylococcus aureus were exposed to electromagnetic field of frequencies 1-5 GHz, which are used in mobile phones. The results showed mostly the inhibition of the development biofilm activity at frequencies 1, 2 and 3 GHz, however the significant stimulation of biofilm development occurred at frequencies 4 and 5 GHz. Our observations demonstrate that EMR exposure produced modulation effects on bacterial biofilms, which are very important in commensal and pathogen bacteria." {Credits 1}
