I am currently interested in determining a definition of a stabilized 
biofilm.  I have been currently investigating the removal of a stabilized 
biofilm of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.  Does anyone have any literature 
references describing the required incubation times, concentrations, etc. 
to develop a "stabilized biofilm"?  I'm I correct to assume that there is 
much debate in the biofilm field as to what is a stabilized biofilm?  Any 
help will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
