Effective diffusivity of lactose in active acidogenic biofilms was measured at 35 degrees C and pH 4.6 with a specially designed diffusion cell. The diffusion cell was designed and operated in such a way that the lactose concentrations on the surface and at the center of a living bacterial aggregate could be measured at steady state. As a model parameter in a widely accepted reaction-diffusion equation which describes lactose distribution in living biofilms, the effective diffusivity of lactose… CONTINUE READING
