Clinical services

Antibiofilmogram®

Antibiofilmogram® is a proprietary BioFilm Control technique designed to study the efficiency of antibiotics on the “biofilm” behaviour of pathogenic bacteria in Human and Animal Health

The Antibiofilmogram® is an Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (AST) technique applied to biofilm formation. To date, it is the only automated technique that can provide additional data to bacterial susceptibility tests with the possibility of saving time.

The BioFilm Control service offer covers 5 infectious areas:

  • Joint & Bone  infections
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcer infection
  • Lung infections
  • Cystic Fibrosis infections
  • Urinary Tract Infections

clinical BioFilm Ring Test®

The clinical BioFilm Ring Test® is a method to evaluate the potential of bacteria to form a biofilm.

This potential can be correlated to the pathogenicity of bacteria and the severity of the infections caused.

This technique allows a large number of strains to be tested quickly and can be applied to all bacterial species.

Antibiofilmogram® and clinical Biofilm Ring Test® (cBRT) are proposed as services, for research and diagnostics, in order to support decision making.
