com)-- The Biofilm
Engineering Research Group at Washington State University will be sponsoring an Electrochemically Active Biofilms
Short Course in collaboration with Gamry Instruments.
AmpliPhi Biosciences Corporation, a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on precisely targeted bacteriophage therapeutics for antibiotic-resistant infections, today announced the presentation of in vivo preclinical data showing AB-PA01 reduces biofilm
in a Pseudomonas aeruginosa preclinical model.
Citing that the techniques currently used to identify anti-biofilm
activities in phage-derived proteins have the "important shortcomings" of being laborious endpoint assays that suffer from poor reproducibility, in the recent issue of Frontiers in Microbiology a team of scientists lead by Diana Gutierrez have reported a proof of concept study using an xCELLigence Real-Time Cell Analysis instrument to monitor the disruption of clinically important Staphylococcus aureus biofilms
formation is an important mode of growth because it is associated with the chronic nature of the subsequent infections, and it helps in inherent resistance to antibiotic chemotherapy.
They can be far more sophisticated in protecting themselves, by hiding in a robust and stubborn layer of biofilm
formation in equipment and food processing surfaces causes several problems, including the corrosion of metal surfaces and cross-contamination of food products (MENON, 2016).
At this years' drinktec, GEA Service will therefore emphasize the GEA SAFEXPERT(tm) antibiofilm program for the beverage and dairy industry, ensuring that biofilm
is no longer an issue in securing superior product quality.
Study of the biofilm
production capacity in Streptococcus equi subsp.
ABSTRACT: Calcium precipitation and biofilm
formation in halophilic bacteria were investigated in the current study.
org/content/early/2017/06/19/1702798114) Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, the team discovered enzymes in the Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterium and the Aspergillus fumigatus fungus that will weaken the biofilm
Objectives: To compare biofilm
formations of two Staphylococcus epidermidis (S.
coli O157:H7 in planktonic and biofilm
state under stressed conditions of NaCl, pH, temperature and ORS (Oral Rehydration Salt) powder and then make comparisons.
