Biofilm development inhibition assay

206 - Inhibition-Biofilm

Service description

The biofilm is a community of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, other ...) attached to a surface and maintained by the secretion of an adhesive and protective matrix. Despite the implementation of preventive measures, biofilms are difficult to eradicate because of their characteristic tolerance to high doses of antibiotics. In this service, the Expert proposes an inhibition test of the biofilm formation.
