I don't know exactly what you mean by autoaggregate: if culture are
not sufficiently shaked, bacteria form a biofilm. When culture are in
strationnary stage
they seems to be aggregated. But, when culture are shaked they do not
seems to aggregate
(as I can see).
Strains belong to Pseudomonas, so they are fast growing and strictly
I think that they do not have the same kinetics of growth.

I will try the microplate solution. I hope that it will be possible to
shaked the plate sufficiently!

Thanks veyr much.
