Pneumoniae by amoxicillin (Weimer et al. 2011). 24 R. B. Cox The clinical concern relative to the synergies of polymicrobial biofilm is that the infection will be more severe and recalcitrant to treatment. There are many examples which show that this is indeed the case. Low levels of P. aeruginosa mixed with Staphylococcus aureus increased infection rates in a rat model (Hendricks et al. 2001). In the mouse model, Prevotella increases the pathogenicity of S. aureus (Mikamo et al. 1998). Escherichia coli produced marked increase in the size of abscess formation with Bacteroides fragilis in a diabetic mouse model (Mastropaolo et al.

All water content has to be removed from tissue prior to paraffin embedding because paraffin is not miscible with water. Imaging Biofilms in Tissue Specimens 35 Dehydration is typically accomplished with a graded ethanol series, followed by infiltration with xylene or a xylene substitute such as SafeClear™. Cryoembedding and cryosectioning of tissue has been used routinely in the medical field, especially when a fast diagnosis of pathology is required, such as during surgery. These techniques do not provide the best preservation of tissue morphology but are often suitable for specific applications.

The authors have used immunofluorescence and CSLM to image S. aureus biofilm cryosections of mouse tissue samples (Figs. 2 and 3). Transmitted light microscopy was used as an alternate imaging method. As with other imaging techniques, it is important to include alternate imaging methods as well as both positive and negative controls to confirm results. For IF, nonspecific binding of both primary and secondary antibodies is possible. Nonspecific binding can be reduced using a variety of blocking agents including serum, albumin, and skim milk powder.
