BioFilm Control

Biofilms are the preferred mode of life of communities of microorganisms, particularly bacteria. The job of BioFilm Control: to measure them to better control them

BioFilm Control is an R&D company created in 2005, leader in the field of conventional microbiology and biofilms, thanks to its BioFilm Ring Test technology protected by 10 patents, the only one to date with clinical validation. Indeed, the first antibiofilmogram in vitro diagnostic test has been CE marked since January 2021 (the company is ISO13485 since 2016), for infected diabetic foot ulcers.

The business of BioFilm Control consists in measuring, mastering and analyzing bacterial biofilms thanks to its proprietary technology, the BioFilm Ring Test, and its extensive expertise in conventional techniques (Crystal Violet, etc.).

The company makes this unique know-how available in the form of services in its Biopôle laboratory for R&D projects in the Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Hygiene, Medical Device industry, etc.: tests of biofilmogenic strains from samples (clinical or others), decontamination product efficacy tests, selection of anti-bioadhesion active ingredients, access to its automated platform specializing in the microbiology of biofilms (screening of molecules, etc.).
