A biosensor based on Escherichia coli Bacteria for determination of heavy metal ions with an acoustic Love wave device and Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microfluidic network has been previously developed, that provides fast detection of toxic chemical compounds. Bacteria were immobilized on the transducer coated with self-assembled molecular multilayers of polyelectrolytes. In this study, we emphasize Love wave and AFM-based complementary characterization methods, which allowed an optimization of some physicochemical parameters of polyelectrolyte solutions, such as pH,...
