Major advances in medical devices have been made over the last few decades, keeping people alive and improving their quality. At the same time, these devices, such as implants, catheters, in-dwelling devices, and contact lenses, can be the source of serious or even life-threatening infections, which are often caused by the adherence and establishment of biofilms on their surfaces.
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. In this 60-minute webinar the presenters will explore current perspectives on and testing methods for biofilms.
Discussion points include the following:
- Current test methods to evaluate the efficacy of strategies to control biofilms
- In-house case studies evaluating biofilms
- Current industry and regulatory perspectives on biofilms
The webinar also includes a Q&A session, which follows the technical presentation.
