- ... Enzyme-based treatments could therefore be used to complement regular cleaning processes. Most studies using enzymes as anti-biofilms strategy are focused on their outcome in mono-species biofilms. Nevertheless, in real environments mixed biofilms are prevalent. In this work, seven types of dual-species biofilms were selected to serve as targets for enzymatic treatments carrying different environm ...

As the structure of biofilms plays a key role in their resistance and persistence, this work presents for the first time the numerical characterization of the temporal evolution of biofilm structures formed by three Listeria monocytogenes strains on two types of stainless-steel supports, AISI 304 SS No. 2B and AISI 316 SS No. 2R.Counting methods, motility tests, fluorescence microscopy and image a ...
