The presence of biofilms in industrial processing plants is a significant cause of contamination to your final product
Nowadays security in food industries faces problems such as the adhesion of microorganisms to surfaces, a structure which is known as biofilm.
Biofilms are essentially groups of microorganisms (i.e. bacteria and other nasties) that produce extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) which act as a shield, protecting them from adverse environmental conditions. They just need a hydrated environment and a minimum amount of nutrients in order to develop.
Biofilms are a crtitical and complicated source of contamination in hydrated conditions due to their stiff resistance to conventional cleaning and hygiene procedures.
This makes removing biofilms especially tricky. Even locating biofilms can be a challenge, as they are invisible to the naked eye.
BioFinder has been developed to detect the presence of biofilms caused by bacteria such as Listeria, Salmonella, E. Coli, and Staphylococcus.
Using BioFinder can streamline your cleaning and sanitizing processes. It can be applied to the most commonly used surfaces in the food industry, such as stainless steel, polypropylene and epoxy-coated surfaces.
Simply spray BioFinder on the target surface, and visually inspect the results to determine the location of biofilms, within seconds!
It immediately reveals contaminated areas after applying Biofinder with a foaming reaction. The reaction is visible for at least 10 minutes and can be easily removed by rinsing the surfaces with abundant water.
Biofinder has advantages over other methodes, with time and cost reduction being the most significant ones!
