Deposition rates of Pseudomonas putida and Hyphomicrobium ZV620 onto glass and biofilm surfaces were quantified. Both species deposited to glass at a much slower rate than to biofilm. A definite bias by depositing cells for biofilms of their own species was evident in the highest attachment rates observed in this study.
