One of the major concerns and risks regarding hygiene in the food industry is the formation of bacterial biofilms. It is important to implement protocols for the control, detection, and removal of microbial biofilms.
The presence of biofilms on the premises poses a risk to food safety, as they protect microorganisms such as Listeria, Pseudomonas, Enterobacter, Flavobacterium or Staphylococcus, and may also cause operating problems in the equipment.
Luckily, with the right tool and specific actions included in the hygiene protocols, these can be identified and controlled.
At CHRISTEYNS we offer a comprehensive service including four stages to identify the formation areas where the most effective solutions can be applied.

Implementing procedures to prevent biofilm formation
TBF® 300 is an effective tool to detect biofilm growing areas quickly and easily through visual identification.
It is based in the use of specific dies that stain the biofilm extracellular matrix. This prevents potential interferences from other waste that may be present.
Removing biofilms is hard, but not impossible when using the correct sanitising procedures.
CHRISTEYNS offers two options that can break and disintegrate the polymeric matrix that makes up the biofilms.
Chemical removal and enzymatic removal.
