Acquisition of time-frequency localized mechanical properties of biofilms and single cells with high spatial resolution

12 Jan 2019 López-Guerra Enrique A. Shen Hongchen Solares Santiago D. Shuai Danmeng

Biofilms are a cluster of bacteria embedded in extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) that contain a complex composition of polysaccharides, proteins, and extracellular DNA (eDNA). Desirable mechanical properties of the biofilms are critical for their survival, propagation, and dispersal, and the response of mechanical properties to different treatment conditions also sheds light on biofilm control and eradication in vivo and on engineering surfaces...
