Abstract

The feasibility of a method to nondestructively measure planktonic bacterial growth in a microfluidic device was addressed. Here, we report that the growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a microfluidic device could be measured by a three-dimensional image analysis technique based on confocal reflection microscopy in a time-course.
