Bioprinting of biofilms
At a glance
Biofilm formation by microorganisms on surfaces is a natural
phenomenon, but can also cause major problems in various fields of
To evaluate measures for or against biofilm development, specifically developed test systems are often used. The reproducible production of biofilms is essential. By means of bioprinting, precisely defined biofilms are to be produced, which are then tested, characterised and compared with classically cultivated biofilms.
