The authors studied whether B. afzelii and B. garinii, two bacteria associated with Lyme disease in Europe, are capable of growing as biofilms in lab culture. Using chemical stains and microscopy, they showed that these two bacteria form biofilms, similar to B. burgdorferi, the North American species, when grown under specific lab culture conditions.
