The purpose of this work was to study the adhesion to polystyrene of two Candida parapsilosis strains, grown at 22 and 37 degrees C, in terms of hydrophobicity, surface charge, and interaction free(More)
Flow chambers applied to the study of the initial adhesion process of Candida parapsilosis are rarely found in the literature. The ability of these microorganisms to proliferate and form biofilms in(More)
AFM probing of microbial cells in liquid environments usually requires them to be physically or chemically attached to a solid surface. The fixation mechanisms may influence the nanomechanical(More)
Thermal oxidation of Ti6Al4V increases the thickness, modifies the structure, and changes the amount of alloying elements of the surface titanium dioxide layer with respect to the spontaneous passive(More)
A knowledge of the physico-chemical surface properties of a bacterium is important to predict the first step in the adhesion process of such a microorganism to biomaterials. In this work,(More)
