- ... Infections caused by bacterial biofilms are challenging to diagnose because of the complexity of both the bacteria and the heterogeneous biofilm matrix. We report here a robust polymer-based sensor array that uses selective interactions between polymer sensor elements and the biofilm matrix to identify bacteria species. In this array, an appropriate choice of fluorophore enabled excimer formation ...
