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.|
