In vitro biofilm model for studying tongue flora and malodour (2007)
Journal Article
Greenman, J., Spencer, P., Spencer, P., Greenman, J., McKenzie, C., Gafan, G., …Flanagan, A. (2007). In vitro biofilm model for studying tongue flora and malodour. Journal of Applied Microbiology, 103(4), 985-992. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2672.2007.03344.x

Aims: To develop a perfusion biofilm system to model tongue biofilm microflora and their physiological response to sulfur-containing substrates (S-substrates) in terms of volatile sulfide compound (VSC) production. Methods and Results: Tongue-scrape... Read More about In vitro biofilm model for studying tongue flora and malodour.

Artificial gills for robots: MFC behaviour in water (2007)
Journal Article
Ieropoulos, I., Melhuish, C., & Greenman, J. (2007). Artificial gills for robots: MFC behaviour in water. Bioinspiration and Biomimetics, 2(3), S83. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-3182/2/3/S02

This paper reports on the first stage in developing microbial fuel cells (MFCs) which can operate underwater by utilizing dissolved oxygen. In this context, the cathodic half-cell is likened to an artificial gill. Such an underwater power generator h... Read More about Artificial gills for robots: MFC behaviour in water.

Use of a bioluminescent Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain within an in vitro microbiological system, as a model of wound infection, to assess the antimicrobial efficacy of wound dressings by monitoring light production (2007)
Journal Article
Greenman, J., Nelson, S. M., Thorn, R. M., Thorn, R., Nelson, S., & Greenman, J. (2007). Use of a bioluminescent Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain within an in vitro microbiological system, as a model of wound infection, to assess the antimicrobial efficacy of wound dressings by monitoring light production. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 51(9), 3217-3224. https://doi.org/10.1128/AAC.00302-07

A bioluminescent Pseudomonas aeruginosa was incorporated into an in vitro static diffusion method to determine whether light output could be used as a measure of wound dressing efficacy. A significant linear correlation was observed between viable co...
