BIOFILMS: A biofilm is a nest of bacteria that are protected by an organic matrix that is resistant to classic cleaning and disinfection solutions. Biofilms can grow on many surfaces in the food industry: work surfaces, conveyors, cooling coils, exchangers, tanks, drains/pipes, membrane filters, etc.
DETECTION: It is now possible to detect and visualize a contamination related to a biofilm thanks to a new process of coloring developed by Realzyme for open surfaces. This patented technology is available now with Realzyme’s Biofilm Detection Kit. Realzyme has developed a protocol to audit installations for the presence of biofilm, as well as a comprehensive product range offering preventive and curative treatment of biofilms.
