Bacterial friction forces are involved in the adhesion and immobilization of bacteria to polymer-brush coated surfaces from a flowing carrier fluid. Friction forces are governed by an interplay of the normally oriented adhesion forces and the properties of the surface and are required to cause immobilization of adhering bacteria once they have approached the surface and established contact.
