The red and the blue: Chromatic sol-gel/polydiacetylene (PDA) thin films, assembled through a dip-coating technique, enable in situ colorimetric and fluorescent detection of bacterial biofilm formation (see figure). Interestingly, the gel-embedded PDA domains promote biofilm accumulation. The sol-gel/PDA assembly can be also employed for high-throughput screening of biofilm inhibitors.
