Quantitative Characterization of Biofilms

Biofilm dynamics and complex structures challenge fundamental measurements of living cell number, mass accumulation, biofilm morphology, and other key properties. These challenges lie not in the measurements themselves, but in the lack of standardized characterization protocols and uniform training availability for individuals wishing to contribute to biofilm-related projects without formal training in biofilm research to identify the best characterization methods for their research Word. For example, biofilm accumulation measurements can focus on total dry mass, total organic carbon, number of live cells, or total number of cells (live and dead). Now, CD BioSciences provides you with a variety of quantitative characterization of biofilms service to meet your scientific research needs.

Our Services

CD BioSciences provides one-stop quantitative characterization of biofilms service. We offer a variety of methods and equipment to choose from to meet your research needs. We use a variety of direct and indirect methods to quantify cells in biofilms. Direct counting methods allow counting of culturable cells, including plate counting, microscopic cell counting, coulter cell counting, flow cytometry, and fluorescence microscopy. Indirect measurement methods include determination of dry weight, total organic carbon, microtiter plate assay, ATP bioluminescence, total protein, and quartz crystal microbalances.

Quantitative Characterization of Biofilms Approaches We Offer

  • Direct quantitative method
    • Direct methods of biofilm quantification are those that rely on direct observation to quantify the desired parameters (number of cells, total biofilm volume, etc.). Imaging and automated cell counting are our most commonly used biofilm quantification methods.
    • In addition, to more accurately identify cells of interest and distinguish them from culture debris, the use of stains or fluorescent labels makes it easier to improve the accuracy of cell counting and data interpretation.
  • Indirect quantification method
    Biofilm growth can often be determined indirectly using surrogate markers that infer biofilm quantity. Examples of these markers include dry mass, total protein content, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides or metabolites.
