Instrument to measure the adhesion strength of adult barnacles

A fully automated instrument has been developed to measure the strength of adhesion of adult barnacles to surfaces, including fouling-release coatings. An evaluation of the methodology can be found in the following journal article: Conlan, S.C., Mutton, R.J., Aldred, N. and Clare, A.S. (2008) Evaluation of a fully automated method to measure the critical removal stress of adult barnacles. Biofouling 24: 471-481.
