I have an in-vivo NMR setup, made out of a glass tube and glass capillaries and I use it for a bacterial cell suspension. After a while the cell suspension tends to form a biofilm on the walls of the tube or other parts of the setup and this is highly unwanted.
Do you think there is any treatment that I can do on my glass setup to diminish it's adhesive properties?
Another way would be to fluidize my cell suspension with a chemical compound that would form some kind of network that would repel cells from one another, but so far I haven't been successful with that, having tried already some dispersant agents.
If anyone could help me it would be great!
Thank you so much
