Abstract

In this paper, for the first time, in situ, staining-free biofilm observation with high spatial resolution over a sufficient depth is presented. Biofilm was grown in a well-defined and reproducible way. The application of microfluidics and thermal lens microscopy (TLM) will provide a new powerful tool for the investigation of biofilm control and biofilm removal strategies.
