The surface interactions of exploring cyprids of the barnacle Semibalanus balanoides were studiedin situ using imaging surface plasmon resonance. It was demonstrated how the deposition of aproteinaceous adhesive could be followed in real time as the cyprids explored and temporarilyattached to a surface. Furthermore, the amount of protein left on the surface when the cyprids movedon could be quantiﬁed. Clear differences were demonstrated between an oligo(ethyleneglycol)coated surface and a bare gold substrate. It is anticipated that this technique will be a valuable toolin the development of novel surface chemistries that can prevent biofouling.
