3D Printing Could Advance Biofilm Science
19 July 2022 | United States
Combatting life-threatening bacterial infections, reducing slime that clogs pipes, preventing plaque buildup on teeth — all could one day benefit from the development of a new technology being developed. When bacteria and other microbes stick to surfaces and create slimy mats — called biofilm — they form complex communities that are often resistant to traditional disinfectants. Now, scientists are developing a tool for replicating the microbial mosaics so that innovative treatments can be studied.
