- Common staining methods for biofilm quantification were evaluated side-by-side.
- Gram's crystal violet performed better than aqueous 0.5% crystal violet solution.
- Safranin staining produced similar results as crystal violet, but with higher reproducibility.
- We recommend Safranin staining based on high reproducibility and low toxicity.
Crystal violet staining is commonly used for quantification of biofilm formation, although it is highly toxic. Here we test safranin as a non-toxic replacement. Safranin staining provided similar results as crystal violet, but with higher reproducibility. We therefore recommend safranin staining for biofilm biomass quantification.
