Major advances in medical devices have been made over the last few decades, keeping thousands of people alive and improving the quality of life for others. At the same time, these devices (e.g., implants, catheters, in-dwelling devices, and contact lenses) can be the source of serious or life-threatening infections caused by the adherence and establishment of biofilms on the surface of the device.
Due to the unique nature of a biofilm’s structure and its resistance to antimicrobial agents, minimizing the risk of biofilm formation poses great challenges. This 60-minute Webinar will explore current perspectives on and testing methods of biofilms.
- Current test methods to evaluate the efficacy of biofilm-control strategies
- In-house case studies evaluating biofilm
- Current industry and regulatory perspectives on biofilms.
A Q&A session follows the technical presentation.
