BioFilm Ring Test (PACK BIOFILM CONTROL)

Description

Provided exclusively by BioFilm Control, the BioFilm Ring Test ® is a fast and convenient new approach for studying biofilm formation. This unique approach monitors how inert paramagnetic beads included in the culture medium are immobilized during the formation of the biofilm:
A magnet is used to assemble the non-immobilized beads into a macroscopic spot.
The resulting spot is quantified through specialized image algorithms.

Immobilization reflects events occuring while bacteria colonize the surface:

  • culture medium modification
  • surface conditioning
  • bacterial growth
  • extra-cellular matrix formation
