Interfacial and adhesion forces between living, unmodified bacterial cells ( Escherichia coli ) and mineral surfaces (muscovite, goethite, and graphite) have been directly measured in aqueous solution using a force microscope. Native cells are linked to a force-sensing probe that is used to characterize interactions as a mineral surface approaches, makes contact with, and withdraws from bacteria on the probe. Attractive and repulsive interfacial forces were detected at ranges up to 400… CONTINUE READING
