biofilm growth

biofilm growth

The proliferation of a microorganism (e.g., a fungus) which is more resistant to antifungals compared with the free-floating or planktonic mode of growth.

Both the unstable sloshing and the stable air-liquid interface contributed to the hydrodynamic mixing of the fluids which led to improved biofilm growth due to improved transport of nutrients in the wells.
Biofilm-based reactors are biological methods increasingly used for biological processes because they give an efficient solution [7], these methods necessarily need support media to biofilm growth. One of the most influential factors for the effectiveness in this type of systems are the support materials used, which must provide the necessary characteristics to produce and accumulate large quantities of bacteria to digest the organic load supplied quickly.
(2004) reported the use of a single EOs majority components to treat a biofilm in this study was not sufficient to inhibit biofilm growth. However, in this study, eugenol was effective except as a sanitizing agent in removal of biofilms formed by biomass.
Biofilm growth control: After incubation, biofilms formed on the pegs surface of the MBEC[TM] device lid were washed with saline solution at 0.9% for 2 min to remove any poorly adhered bacterial cells.
Enzymatic digestion of eDNA with DNase has been shown to effectively disperse biofilms, particularly during initial stages of biofilm growth (9).
This hydrodynamic mixing is responsible for transporting nutrients to growing biofilm and therefore our simulations suggested the shaking conditions for a 50 mm orbital diameter shaker to be in the range of 120-150 rpm for improved biofilm growth.
The objective of this paper is to obtain an integrated framework that provides models describing the different stages of biofilm growth, the action of different agents, and the simultaneous modeling of resulting kinetics for live and dead biofilm.
