Biofilms Test Kit

Biofilms can make bacteria in the body difficult to find and counteract.

15 vials.

 

A biofilm comprises any group of microorganisms in which cells stick to each other and often also to a surface. These adherent cells become embedded within a slimy extracellular matrix that is composed of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). The cells within the biofilm produce the EPS components, which are typically a polymeric conglomeration of extracellular polysaccharides, proteins, lipids and DNA. Because they have three-dimensional structure and represent a community lifestyle for microorganisms, they have been metaphorically described as "cities for microbes".

 

Dental plaque is a biofilm or mass of bacteria that grows on surfaces within the mouth. It is a sticky colourless deposit at first, but when it forms tartar, it is often brown or pale yellow.

  • Comments

    As a biofilm, dental plaque exhibits an open architecture much like that of other biofilms. The open architecture, which consists of channels and voids, helps to achieve the flow of nutrients, waste products, metabolites, enzymes, and oxygen through the biofilm.

    Dental plaque biofilms are responsible for many of the diseases common to the oral cavity including dental caries, periodontitis, gingivitis, and the less common peri-implantitis (similar to periodontitis, but with dental implants), however biofilms are present on healthy teeth as well.
