Title: Don’t Get Slimed: Science vs. Biofilms


Did you know that bacteria can form biofilms and survive on frequently touched surfaces? Common examples of biofilms are dental plaque and pond scum—basically a slimy buildup of bacteria that can grow on plant and animal tissues—and on medical devices, such as catheters and pacemakers. Worse, the bacteria are 200 times more resistant to antibiotics and 20,000 times more resistant to chlorine disinfectants. Learn about modern genetic techniques to track the movement of bacteria within any setting or work environment. Empower your operations team with information on the latest advances and tactics for blocking biofilms.
