However, the initial attachment process mediated by N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs) is diﬃcult to be fully understood due Keywords: to the lack of non-invasive and on-line investigation techniques. In this study, the AHL-regulated wastewater UTDR AHLs bioﬁlm attachment was quantiﬁed using ultrasonic time-domain reﬂectometry (UTDR) as an in-situ and non- Quorum sensing invasive monitoring technique. Results demonstrated that the reversible adhesion time in municipal and in- Initial bioﬁlm attachment dustrial wastewaters was signiﬁcantly decreased in the presence of exogenous AHLs.
