Nanoplasmonics Enables Label-Free Measurement of Bacteria Formation

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Using nanochip technology and a targeted beam of light, scientists have devised a real-time, label-free way to monitor biofilms, an important component in the search for alternatives to bacteria-resistant antibiotics. The team from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) wanted to gain a better understanding of the biochemical reactions that allow bacteria to produce biofilms, which are slimy linked matrix structures. Finding no tools available that would allow them to monitor biofilm growth according to their requirements, the researchers modified an existing tool. ...Read full article
