I am trying to grow a spirulina biofilm on my cathode for a fuel cell but it doesn't seem to be sticking to the cathode. I have a culture of spirulina and I've submerged a few cathodes in it to try and develop a biofilm. This is not working. Is there anything I can do to promote spirulina growth on my cathode like coating it in glucose or something?

  • $\begingroup$ I keep finding articles that say Spirulina Platensis actually inhibits biofilms. Research is underway to use this property of Spriulina Platensis to disrupt the biofilms that protect pathogenic bacteria from antibiotics. $\endgroup$ – RICK LAMAR LINES Jan 9 at 0:22
