Abstract

Are the fluorescence profiles observed in biofilm an artefact of confocal microscopy and sample topography? A mathematical model has been constructed that replicates these profiles in a homogenous ‘biofilm’. However; direct measurement of metabolic activity in biofilm shows that viability profiles do exist and are therefore structural motifs worthy of study
