Microbial adhesion and biofilms

✔ Would you like to assess your active ingredients, formulations and finished products for microbial adhesion and biofilm formation?

Tailor-made support

ACM Pharma Fonderephar adapts to each need

👉 Our team has developed dynamic or static (microplate) models for studying microbial adhesion and biofilm formation.

The formation of single- or multi-microbial biofilms can be used for various applications :

  • Screening and/or validation of products (detergents and/or disinfectants, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc.)
  • Validation of cleaning and/or disinfection processes
  • Evaluation of adhesion delay after initial or ongoing treatment,
  • Evaluation of adhesion-inhibiting active ingredients

Numerous statistical or dynamic models have been developed for specific sectors (oral and dental flora, intestinal flora, skin flora, etc.) and can be adapted according to your hypotheses/needs.
