Why are biofilms an issue?


Biofilms are responsible for 65% of all infections.¹

Medical Devices

are subject to contamination by biofilms.

Cleaning is crucial

It is impossible to disinfect or even sterilize inadequately-cleaned medical devices.4

Tolerance x1000

Bacteria are up to 1000x more tolerant to biocides if in a biofilm.


  is favored inside biofilms due to horizontal transfer of genes carrying antibiotics-resistance.


  • Most biofilms are multi-species. Even non biofilm-forming microbes can be sheltered in a biofilm (incl. multi-drug resistant bacteria like MRSA, CRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Legionella, E. coli, Viruses and Fungi). 

  • Biofilms develop frequently on Medical Devices.

  • Horizontal transfer of genes carrying antiobiotics-resistance is favored inside biofilms.

  • Biofilms form a protective barrier around infectious micro-organisms and enhance survival of exposure to antimicrobials.

  • Inorganic and organic materials interfere with the effectiveness of disinfectants and sterilization.³

  • Disinfectants are mostly tested against planktonic (free) bacteria, although 99% of bacteria naturally exist in a biofilm.
