We are pleased to announce the release of the new training videos for the Drip Flow Biofilm Reactor (DFR). The Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) at Montana State University (MSU) has spent the last year developing and producing this series of videos. The Standardized Biofilm Methods Lab (SBML) at the CBE strives to develop and teach methods for repeatable biofilm growth and sampling techniques, and these new videos offer the visualization of some of these standardized techniques.
The Drip Flow Biofilm Reactor was developed and released as a main part of our line of biofilm reactors in 2004. It was developed with the CBE to grow repeatable biofilms under low shear conditions. There is currently an ASTM standard method (ASTM E2647-13) published for the growth of a biofilm in the DFR: Standard Test Method for Quantification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilm Grown Using Drip Flow Biofilm Reactor® with Low Shear and Continuous Flow.
We will soon be introducing the anodized aluminum Drip Flow Biofilm Reactor. This reactor will be much more rigid and robust than the plastic materials currently used. Contact us for a quote today, or to discuss other potential reactor materials.
