Biofilm Removal

In addition to its powerful antimicrobial properties, Foodscience AMT can rapidly remove biofilm from processing equipment, tanks and pipelines in processing plants, irrigation systems and greenhouses.

Biofilm is a polysaccharide layer deposited by bacteria as a protective film that is resistant to most antimicrobial compounds. It forms a hidden reservoir from which bacteria can re-contaminate fresh produce and equipment after conventional cleaning processes. Foodscience AMT removes and destroys biofilm as an essential part of the decontamination process.
