A parallel plate flow cell reactor is introduced and used to evaluate cell adhesion and biofilm formation kinetics for four different bacterial strains of the species,E. coli. The reactor allows biofilm growth under defined, well-controlled fluid dynamics while providing continuous observations and direct sampling of biofilm for biological, chemical and physical analyses as well as immunofluorescent labeling.
