Biofilm Reactors

BioSurface Technologies’ Biofilm Reactors provide easy-to-sample biofilm growth systems. These systems provide multi-sample opportunities and repeatable data. ASTM Standard Methods are available for most of our biofilm reactors.

Reactor Capabilities:

  • Reproducible biofilm growth
  • Multiple samples
  • Available coupon materials include plastics, metals, and ceramics
  • Reactors for a wide range of shear and operational conditions
  • Suitable for time-course studies
  • Cited in ASTM Standard Methods
  • Autoclavable and re-useable

Reactor Operations:

  • Analyze biofilm formation on multiple materials
  • Statistically relevant testing
  • Suitable for biocide and antibiotic development and testing
  • Variable shear independent of flow
  • Continuous-flow through systems
  • Suitable for aerobic and anaerobic cultures
