It is known that more than 99% of bacteria exist in natural ecosystems not as free-floating cells, but as biofilms attached to the substrate [1]. According to a number of researchers, the planktonic form can be considered only as a way of moving a microbial cell from one surface to another, that is, a short-term state in the life of bacteria [2].
