Biofilm Encapsulation

Biofilm Encapsulation

This SEM micrograph shows a biofilm which has encapsulated a surface. The biofilm was formed by a colony of Cocci type bacteria. The image is a low magnification view, and shows that the colony, and associated biofilm, has uniformly coated the surface of this device. The extracellular matrix is well formed, and it appears that the biofilm is continuing to grow.
