Vilber Lourmat are the European molecular imaging specialists. Founded in 1954 they have been at the forefront of UV technology and more recently western blot imaging. They launched their first imaging system in 1984 and have now placed more than 20,000 systems worldwide in over 60 countries.
Novel Mechanism of Biofilm Formation
Researchers at The University of Oxford have uncovered a novel competitive mechanism for biofilm formation. Their research found that when competing strains of bacteria attempt to kill each other off, biofilms are formed as a defense mechanism and the stronger strain crowds out the other. While it has been known that antibiotic mechanisms of pyocins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa cause DNA damage and depolarize the cytoplasmic membrane, Oliveria et. al. postulated that these antibiotic mechanisms mimic the attack caused by competing bacteria strains and trigger biofilm formation. This was in contrast to previous theories that suggested antibiotics provide cooperative signals and that two strains of bacteria cooperate to form a biofilm.
