Webinar: A New Era in Biofilm Research

Beyond gains in efficiency, the real-time and label-free xCELLigence assay provides access to information that has been inaccessible using traditional methodologies.

 

Seminar Monitoring Biofilm Dynamics

Join us for a seminar on Friday February 16, 14:00 - 16:00 at Charite Universitätsmedizin Berlin

 

A new Application Note provides protocols for quantitative assays of biofilms and their EPS.

 

Continuously Screening Biofilms in Real Time

A new PLoS article describes monitoring of biofilm formation of Staphylococcus and Streptococcus strains using xCELLigence continuous impedance measurements - a technology opening new opportunities in the biofilm research arena for screening of strains and evaluation of bioactives and antimicrobials.

 

Using xCELLigence continuous impedance measurements, distinct phases of P. aeruginosa biofilm formation were revealed. Antibiotic effects were characterized with a precision superior to crystal violet staining.
