Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Pseudomonas aeruginosa 

Gram-negative, aerobic rod-shaped bacterium that, under appropriate conditions, produces pigments. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterial strain that is able to form biofilms on surfaces with contact to water. These biofilms are considered potentially harmful as they may also harbour other pathogens. In addition, they damage the surfaces they adhere to. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is highly resistant and increasingly resistant to antibiotics.
