Continuous hemodialysis system monitoring is necessary to prevent microorganism growth and health problems. This study evaluates single- and dual-species biofilm formation in microtiter plates by using dialysis solutions under aerobiosis or 5% CO2 atmosphere. Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Candida parapsilosis sensu lato, and Mycobacterium smegmatis produce single-species biofilms in all dialysis solutions in both oxygenation conditions. Dual-species biofilm cultures grown at 5% CO2 atmosphere and in dialysate containing glucose reveal that M. smegmatis benefits from its association with C. parapsilosis. The dialysate and its constituent solutions support the growth of all the mono-species and the inter-kingdom mycobacterial/yeast biofilms in both aerobiosis and microaerophilic conditions.
