In this study, the authors characterized and compared the passive detachment of monoculture Nitrosomonas europaea and Pseudmonas aeruginosa biofilms grown in hollow fiber membrane bioreactors. A unique set of non-invasive experimental methods was used to quantify the correlation between biofilm physiology (surface morphology and metabolism), fluid shear, and detachment.
