Rapid communication: notes on biofilm porosity
MetadataShow full item record
Difficulties have been encountered attempting to use porosity as a parameter for quantifying biofilm heterogeneity.Â Some of those difficulties are technical in nature â€“ measurement of biofilm porosity and interpretation of the results -- while other are more fundamental and result from using the well-known concept of rigid porous bed porosity to describe the porosity of a gelatinous biofilm matrix.Â Possible remedies are suggested and discussed.
