Inactivation of bacterial biofilms – new approaches

Project team: Robert Limburn
Member funded research project
Running: Jan 2018 – Dec 2020
Steering MIG: Microbiology
Project Number: 144030
Proposal documentation


Bacterial biofilms pose a constant threat to the quality of a wide variety of foods. Organisms existing in a biofilm state are able to resist a number of microbiological measures to a greater degree than planktonic cells, leading to persistent challenge to cleaning and CIP systems.


The aim of this project is to define the resistance of key spoilage organisms in their biofilm state in order to establish and optimise procedures for decontamination and / or removal of biofilms in food industry settings.
