Abstract

Biofilms drive crucial ecosystem processes in rivers. This study provided the basis for overall quantitative calculations about the contribution of biofilms to the nitrogen cycle. At the early stage of biofilm formation, dissolved oxygen (DO) could penetrate the biofilms. As the biofilm grew and...

Abstract

Biofilms are widely present in the natural environment and are difficult to remove as they are a survival strategy of microorganisms. Thus, the importance of studying biofilms is being increasingly recognized in food, medical, dental, and water quality-related industries. While research on biofilm...

Abstract

The microbial community in biofilm is safeguarded from the action of toxic chemicals, antimicrobial compounds, and harsh/stressful environmental circumstances. Therefore, biofilm-based technology has nowadays become a successful alternative for treating industrial wastewater as compared to...

Abstract

The microbial activities in sewer biofilms are recognized as a major reason for sewer pipe corrosion, malodor, and greenhouse gas emissions. However, conventional methods to control sewer biofilm activities were based on the inhibitory or biocidal effect of chemicals and often required long...

Abstract

Natural biofilms induce the settlement of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus larvae and have been applied to polyethylene corrugated plates (PCP) as settlement substrata in Chinese hatcheries. The method is technologically simple, but typically results in low efficiency of larval settlement, while ...

Abstract

The application of membrane technology for water treatment and reuse is hampered by the development of a microbial biofilm. Biofilm growth in micro-and ultrafiltration (MF/UF) membrane modules, on both the membrane surface and feed spacer, can form a secondary membrane and exert resistance to...

Abstract

Biofilm carriers can avoid microorganism washout while maintaining a high amount of biomass, but are also associated with a long biofilm formation period and biofilm aging. A single stage partial nitritation/anammox process (single stage PN/A) reactor was setup to study the biofilm growth...

Abstract

Listeria monocytogenes can adapt, persist, and form biofilms on food premises surfaces, representing a challenge for food safety, since they led to disease transmission, food contamination and spoilage during production. Physical interventions (scrubbing and wiping) can help controlling formation,...

Abstract

Biofilms containing foodborne pathogens can adhere to food ingredients or food processing equipment. Due to their enhanced resilience to cleaning and chance of cross-contamination, there is an increased risk of food poisoning to consumers. The life course of biofilms is generally thought to be...

Abstract

Listeria monocytogenes is able to form biofilms on food contact surfaces. Effectiveness of salt concentration, pH, and temperature on the formation of L. monocytogenes biofilms was evaluated individually and in combinations using microtiter plate assay by measuring the optical density. The tested...
