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.

Zero tolerance for Listeria means zero tolerance for biofilms!

Anyone working in the food processing industry will know how a biofilm left undetected and untreated can cause havoc. Outbreaks of Listeriosis and other large scale contaminations start with biofilm-forming bacteria. Listeria are amongst the most enthusiastic of these biofilm formers. Listeria monocytogenes, is a food bourne pathogen responsible for the Listeriosis illness. It is […]

How to fight biofilms in pipes and tanks

Did you know that most bacteria in pipes and tanks live in biofilms and not free in the water? And, while free floating bacteria is easy to remove, biofilms are not. Unfortunately pipes and tanks make an ideal environment for pathogenic and spoilage bacteria to thrive in biofilm. This is where you may find some […]
