Using advanced confocal laser beam scanning microscopy, 3d images were obtained of the biopsies and evaluated for biofilm morphology using generic staining and species-particular probes for Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Moraxella catarrhalis by Luanne Hall Stoodley, Ph.D. And her ASRI co-workers. Effusions, when present, were also evaluated for evidence of pathogen particular nucleic acid sequences .
