MEASURING bacterial ADHESION AT THE CELL LEVEL. 

SINGLE bacteria ADHESION 

 


Measuring bacterial adhesion at single cell level is now possible thanks to FluidFM. Quantify anti-microbial surfaces, gain insight into pathogen pathways, or explore your own unique application. FluidFM technology gives you access to new realms of the microbiological domain.

Yeast cells are arranged in a row via pick and place.

a Shorter Handling Time.

The target cell is selected via the point and click interface and then reversibly attached to the FluidFM probe by applying an underpressure. It is subsequently detached from the surface by retracting the measurement probe, and the resulting adhesion forces are precisely recorded with pN resolution. All force curves are automatically stored and organized for analysis using our advanced data analysis software or custom third-party tools.
