Aspergillus fumigatus biofilm

Biofilms on bronchial epithelial cells in vitro.

Confocal scanning laser microscopy (CLSM), using CAAF(green) Fun1(red) stained biofilm. The red color of the FUN 1 cell stain was localized in dense aggregates in the cytoplasm of metabolically active cells. Thus, areas of red fluorescence represented metabolically active cells, and green fluorescence indicated cell wall-like polysaccharides, while yellow areas represented dual staining.
