Paper Abstract

The diffusion capabilities of free fluorophores inside the heterogeneous three dimensional structure of Staphylococcus aureus biofilm were studied by an original image-based Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching method. The study was extended to BODIPY-vancomycin in order to better understand the mechanisms involved in the high tolerance of the bacteria embedded in a biofilm to the antibiotic.
