General Details

Biofilms are invisible until revealed with BioFinder

The presence of biofilms on work surfaces in the food processing industry is a major risk factor when it comes to food safety.

Biofilms are groups of microorganisms which adhere to surfaces and produce extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) that cover them, protecting them from adverse environmental conditions.

The EPS confers resistance to microorganisms and forms a barrier against conventional cleaning and disinfecting procedures, which makes it difficult to remove the biofilm.

Biofilms can easily and quickly form wherever there is a hydrated environment and nutrients.

Rapid detection of microbial “hot-spots” is critical to sanitation verification and quality assurance. Today’s food processing and food service facilities must take extra precautions to protect against unseen microbial threats. Biofinder is a fast and accurate way to make the Invisible…Visible.

Biofinder provides a cost-effective, visual indication of the presence of biofilms on a surface which may contain harmful microorganisms such as Listeria, Escherichia coli (E. coli) or Salmonella. When the product comes into contact with biofilms, Biofinder rapidly produces white micro-bubbles/foam within 1 minute, providing a visual indicator of potential harbourage niches.

The Secret Life and Language of Biofilms

Why do we find biofilms so fascinating? Is it because, without the presence of a scheming mind, they can still transform their community into an impenetrable fortress while coordinating defences and attacks? It is natural survival at its best. You may have felt a biofilm in a riverbed as the slimy layer on a stone. […]
