Abstract The purpose of this work was to analyze the effect of serum on the physicochemical surface properties and adhesion to glass and silicone of Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 29212 at 37 degrees C. As is presented using thermodynamics analysis, serum minimizes the interaction of cells with water, which correlates well with the increase in hydrophobicity and in bacterial adhesion to glass and silicone.
