Despite recent advances in the technology, very little is known about the interactions between bacteria and the optical fibre surfaces. The work presented herein aims to determine the influence of surface characteristics and chemistry of standard optical imaging fibres used in biomedical applications on the attachment behavior of three medically and environmentally significant microorganisms (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudolateromonas issachenkonii and Cobetia marina).
