The anchoring biofilm layer is expected to exhibit a different response to environmental stresses than for portions in the bulk, due to the protection from other strata and the proximity to the attachment surface. The effect of hydrodynamic stress on surface-adhered biofilm layers was tested using a specially designed microfluidic bio flow cell with an embedded three-electrode detection system. In situ electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements of biocapacitance and bioresistance… 
Monitoring of bacteria biofilms forming process by in-situ impedimetric biosensor chip.
TLDR
The biosensor chip provided a promising platform for further study of bio Films owing to its unique advantages of real time, continuity, and non-invasion for bacteria biofilms detection and in-situ monitoring.
Hydrodynamics and surface properties influence biofilm proliferation.
TLDR
This review follows a cell through the cycle of attachment, growth, and departure from a colony and focuses on hydrodynamics and stratum properties due to the synergistic effect such properties have on bacteria rejection and removal.
Altered biofilm formation at plasma bonded surfaces in microchannels studied by attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy
Abstract This paper is dedicated to Professor P.R. Norton on the occasion of his 75th birthday, in honor of his profound contributions to Surface Science. In this work, we investigate how plasma
A microfluidic platform for in situ investigation of biofilm formation and its treatment under controlled conditions
TLDR
A microfluidic platform that permits real-time observation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation under precisely controlled homogeneous laminar flow conditions is established and shows great potential for the in vitro assessment of new antimicrobials and antifouling agents under flow conditions.
Microfluidic bioanalytical flow cells for biofilm studies: a review.
TLDR
The current state of microfluidic bioanalytical research applied to bacterial biofilms is reviewed and a perspective on new approaches that are expected to drive continued advances in this field is offered.
A surface spectroscopy study of a Pseudomonas fluorescens biofilm in the presence of an immobilized air bubble.
TLDR
The results reveal that the presence of a bubble during the lag phase modified levels of extracellular lipids and affected a surface restructuring process, many hours after the bubble's disappearance.
Microfluidic flow confinement to avoid chemotaxis-based upstream growth in a biofilm flow cell reactor
Introduction of a bacterial inoculant into a chemostat bioreactor can lead to unwanted contamination of upstream elements via chemotaxis. This can result in biofilm growth in connective tubing,
Microsystems for biofilm characterization and sensing – A review
TLDR
This review presents some of the current developments in microsystems for characterization and sensing of bacterial biofilms and shows how these devices can lead to better understanding of the physiology and function of these communities of bacteria, which can eventually lead to the development of novel treatments that do not rely on high-dosage antibiotics.
Microfluidic Microbial Bioelectrochemical Systems: An Integrated Investigation Platform for a More Fundamental Understanding of Electroactive Bacterial Biofilms
TLDR
A huge virgin field of investigation still remains to be explored by taking advantage of the capacities of microfluidic BESs regarding the complexity and interactions of mixed electroactive biofilms.
Evaluation of bacterial adhesion strength on phospholipid copolymer films with antibacterial ability using microfluidic shear devices.
TLDR
Using the shear stress-tunable microfluidic device, it was found that the adhesion of S. aureus on the thicker and softer phospholipid copolymer was weak, and the cells easily detached under high shear Stress.

Biofilms’ Role in Planktonic Cell Proliferation
TLDR
The existence of a biofilm surface-associated zone of planktonic cell proliferation is proposed to highlight the need to expand the traditional perception of bioFilms as promoting microbial survival, to include the potential of biofilms to contribute to microbial proliferation.
Influence of electric fields and pH on biofilm structure as related to the bioelectric effect
TLDR
The consequences of the explanation of the increased susceptibility of biofilm cells to antibiotics in an electric field, the "bioelectric effect," are discussed.
Effect of flow regime on the architecture of a Pseudomonas fluorescens biofilm.
TLDR
These conclusions, together with the fact that the biofilms were more dense and stable when formed in contact with turbulent flows, favor the design of more compact and efficient biofilm reactors operating in turbulent conditions.
Monitoring of microbial adhesion and biofilm growth using electrochemical impedancemetry
TLDR
The applicability of electric cell-substrate impedance sensing (ECIS) for studying the attachment and spreading of cells on a metal surface has been demonstrated and provides a simple and non-expensive electrochemical method for in vitro assessment of the presence of biofilms on metal surfaces.

TLDR
A microfluidic platform with a fluorescent nanoparticle-based sensor is demonstrated for real-time, ratiometric pH imaging of biofilms and opens the way for the analysis of separate contributions to dental caries due to localized acidification directly at the biofilm tooth interface.
Metabolic Differentiation in Biofilms as Indicated by Carbon Dioxide Production Rates
TLDR
The adaptable nature and the ability of bacteria to respond to environmental conditions were further demonstrated by the outer shear-susceptible region of the biofilm; the average CO2 production rate of cells from this region increased within 0.25 h from 9.45 ± 5.40 fmol of CO2·cell−1·h−1 to 22.6 ± 7.58 fmol when cells were removed from the bio film and maintained in suspension without an additional nutrient supply.
