Summary
This report looks at repeating previous work by Kimberley Jefferson who identified a low molecular weight component of blood serum that inhibits biofilm formation of S. aureus. If the work by Jefferson is repeatable then it could be possible to screen for anti-biofilm components in animal products such as milk or honey, based on the theory that they may have similar anti-biolfilm systems. The project used bovine blood serum instead of human blood serum because of time limitations and ethical aspects
