Biofilms in restoration : Hunt for the indestructible

Food Hygiene News 12 avril

What is a Biofilm ? It is a collection of microorganisms (bacteria) covered with a gelatinous protection (exopolysaccharides) serving as their armor against the external elements. Once the bacteria mature, they detach from the biofilm and colonize other surfaces and potentially contaminate your products.

What are the properties of a Biofilm ?

  1. A biofilm can therefore contain, among other things, bacteria that are harmful to health.
  2. Organized in a biofilm, these will develop up to 10 times faster than if they were alone in the environment.
  3. The layer surrounding them gives them the ability to resist 100 times more to all conventional cleaning and disinfection products.

Work plan, tools (damaged cutting boards, knives, bowls damaged or having been poorly dried ...), washing tub, tub, slicers, are examples of favorite places for the formation of biofilms.
