Directed assembly of living Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria on PEI patterns generated by nanoxerography for statistical AFM bioexperiments.

Immobilization of living micro-organisms on predefined areas of substrates is a prerequisite for their characterizations by atomic force microscopy (AFM) in culture media. It remains challenging since micro-organisms should not be denatured but attached strongly enough to be scanned with an AFM tip, in a liquid phase. In this work, a novel approach is… CONTINUE READING
