Biofilms on gold anodes


Properties of biofilms grown on gold anodes separated by a 50-µm nonconducting gap. (A) Confocal scanning laser micrograph of Aro-5 biofilm stained with LIVE/DEAD BacLight viability stain, demonstrating that the Aro-5 biofilms spanned the nonconducting gap. The position of the gap is designated by the white arrows. (B) Conductivity measured across the nonconducting gap for the control and Aro-5 strains (means ± standard deviations; n = 3 biofilms for each strain). Credit: Vargas et al. (2013) mBio March/April 2013 vol. 4 no. 2
