What is Biofilm?
Biofilm is a group of bacteria which adhere to each other, once this is done they go on to adhere to any surface. When adhesion is taking place, we can see that microorganisms product highly sticky microfilaments, really sticky mucus. These microorganisms continue forming filaments, and at the same time they multiply until a real community is formed. In such a community consisting of hundreds of millions or billions stuck to eachother they are going to exchange nutrients, humidity, water and something even more dangerous generic material. This is a form of resistance. This is how these microorganisms survive in extreme environments. The use of standard cleaning products and disinfectants can not penetrate them.
What is Biofinder, and how does it work?
When we want to check if there’s an important threat we won’t be able to detect biofilms with the human eye, they go totally unnoticed – this poses as a big risk to public health.
Biofinder works as a “finder” of biological films. This detects harmful microorganisms even where a simple visual check fails. It is a product of ITRAM HIGIENE. Biofinder was awarded the prize of PREMIS INNOVACAT 2014 for the best invention of the year.
