Polyethyleneimine (PEI)-coated slides were used for attachment of unknown extremophiles and their cultures grown at high temperature and low pH. Selective adhesion of cells in natural samples and cultural isolates was compared to polylysine (PL) and several other coatings. PEI is superior to PL for adhesion of extremophiles.
