How bacteria statically interact with abiotic surfaces?

Updated: Sep 17, 2020

"A 2 nm polymer coating on PDMS surfaces of different stiffness confers the same chemistry to all surfaces, whilst maintaining mechanical properties. This approach allows differentiation of the influence of interfacial chemistry and material stiffness on bacterial colonization. Similar amounts of the adhered bacteria were present on all coated surfaces, but significantly different amounts were present on the uncoated surfaces, which provides new fundamental insights into the influence of material properties on bacterial colonization."
