The influence of extracellular polymeric substances (EPSs) on bacterial cell electrokinetic properties and on cell adhesion onto glass beads in connection with bacterial cell electrokinetic properties was investigated using 12 heterotrophic bacterial strains. Bacterial cell surface properties such as the softness 1/lambda and charge density ZN were… CONTINUE READING
