Instrument to measure the adhesion strength of barnacle cyprids

A fully turbulent flow cell has been developed to measure the adhesion strength of cyprids - the colonisation stage of barnacles attached to e.g. fouling-release coatings. The instrument can also be used to compare coatings for ease of removal of other biofouling e.g. biofilm.
