What is biofilm and how can I get rid of it ?

Biofilm is an aggregate of micro-organisms (mainly bacteria) which adhere to each other in a matrix of complex sugars and proteins adhering to a surface. Biofilm concerns all agri-food activities and gives the micro-organisms comprising it increased resistance to cleaning and disinfection procedures.

Biofilm is a major source of microbial contamination, notably when micro-organisms naturally separate from their support.
