In order to facilitate a semi-high throughput approach to the evaluation of novel fouling-release coatings, a 'spinjet' apparatus has been constructed. The apparatus delivers a jet of water of controlled, variable pressure into the wells of 24-well plates in order to facilitate measurement of the strength of adhesion of algae growing on the base of the wells. Two algae, namely, sporelings (young plants) of the green macroalga Ulva and a diatom (Navicula), were selected as test organisms because… CONTINUE READING
