Book Description :

When bacteria attach to and colonise the surfaces of food processing equipment and foods products themselves, there is a risk that biofilms may form. Human pathogens in biofilms can be harder to remove than free microorganisms and may therefore pose a more significant food safety risk. Biofilms in the food and beverage industries reviews the formation of biofilms in these sectors and best practices for their control. The first part of the book considers fundamental aspects such as molecular mechanisms of biofilm formation by food-associated bacteria and methods for biofilm imaging, quantification and monitoring. Part two then reviews biofilm formation by different microorganisms. Chapters in Part three focus on significant issues related to biofilm prevention and removal. Contributions on biofilms in particular food industry sectors, such as dairy and red meat processing and fresh produce, complete the collection. With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Biofilms in the food and beverage industries is a highly beneficial reference for microbiologists and those in industry responsible for food safety. Considers fundamental aspects concerning the ecology and characteristics of biofilms and considers methods for their detection Examines biofilm formation by different micro-organisms such as samonella and food spoilage Discusses specific issues related to biofilm prevention and removal, such as cleaning and sanitation of food contact surfaces and food processing equipment

Book Description :

In recent years, the formation and impacts of biofilms on dairy manufacturing have been studied extensively, from the effects of microbial enzymes produced during transportation of raw milk to the mechanisms of biofilm formation by thermophilic spore-forming bacteria. The dairy industry now has a better understanding of biofilms and of approaches that may be adopted to reduce the impacts that biofilms have on manufacturing efficiencies and the quality of dairy products. Biofilms in the Dairy Industry provides a comprehensive overview of biofilm-related issues facing the dairy sector. The book is a cornerstone for a better understanding of the current science and of ways to reduce the occurrence of biofilms associated with dairy manufacturing. The introductory section covers the definition and basic concepts of biofilm formation and development, and provides an overview of problems caused by the occurrence of biofilms along the dairy manufacturing chain. The second section of the book focuses on specific biofilm-related issues, including the quality of raw milk influenced by biofilms, biofilm formation by thermoduric streptococci and thermophilic spore-forming bacteria in dairy manufacturing plants, the presence of pathogens in biofilms, and biofilms associated with dairy waste effluent. The final section of the book looks at the application of modelling approaches to control biofilms. Potential solutions for reducing contamination throughout the dairy manufacturing chain are also presented. Essential to professionals in the global dairy sector, Biofilms in the Dairy Industry will be of great interest to anyone in the food and beverage, academic and government sectors. This text is specifically targeted at dairy professionals who aim to improve the quality and consistency of dairy products and improve the efficiency of dairy product manufacture through optimizing the use of dairy manufacturing plant and reducing operating costs.

Book Description :

In surface colonization, microorganisms tend to form complex biological structures containing cells and adhesion molecules, called biofilms, which provide them with high stability and resistance to biocide compounds. These biofilms are dynamic structures in which bacteria, individually or in layers, are continuously recruited and released with time. This dynamism makes biofilms a source of microorganism, sometimes pathogens, becoming elements of risk for public health. Up to now, most widespread detection methods for biofilm formation are based on conductimetric, capacitive or potentiometric analyses. These methods are simple, easy to implement and sensitive but prone to false positives for their low selectivity, interference of environmental factors (e.g. temperature or medium conductivity) and ageing/corrosion of the transducer. The aim of this master thesis was to develop a low-cost polymeric optical Lab-on-a-chip for sensitive and selective detection of biofilms in early stages of formation. Lab on a chip consisted of two poly(methyl methacrylate) layers containing two SU-8 waveguides confronted one to the other with a microfluidic channel in between. The region between waveguides was etched with suitable patterns to promote bacterial adhesion and biofilm growth, thus enhancing sensor sensitivity to initial stages of biofilm formation. Sensing principle was based on the changes produced in the spectral response of the system (by absorbing components present in the biofilm) and the amount of light reaching the detector when a biofilm was growing between both waveguides. Optical measurements provided the system with high selectivity allowing to differentiate between water-based elements (such as biofilms), which may confine the light, and salt incrustations (the major interference in electrical analysis systems) which should disperse light. This structure represent a step forward in early detection of biofilm formation, very relevant in several areas such as water distribution, food and beverage industries and even medicine.
