wrcr12732-sup-0004-fs03.tifTIFF image998KFigure S3. Light microscopy image detailing the distribution and adherence of silver-coated hollow glass micro-spheres to the biofilm surface. The silver particles can be seen to adhere solely to the biofilm (a) as opposed to the PDMS column posts (b) indicating that spatial distribution of silver particles within the x-ray tomography data corresponds to the location of biofilm.

The data have been segmented to differentiate biofilm (green) from the glass beads (gold) within the sample column. Biofilm appears both as surface-associated cell clusters on the surface of glass beads as well as within the pore space bridging multiple glass beads.
