Researchers unveil 3D printing technology that could advance biofilm science

Combatting life-threatening bacterial infections, reducing slime that clogs pipes, preventing plaque buildup on teeth—all could one day benefit from a new technology being developed by Montana State University researchers. When bacteria and other microbes stick to surfaces and create slimy mats—called biofilm—they form complex communities that are often resistant to traditional disinfectants. Now, scientists in MSU’s Center for Biofilm Engineering…
