Here's something for the forum members to dwell upon for the weekend (providing it hits you all in time).
Subject - Biofilms
Specifics - Gram Negative Rods
Reason - isolation of in manufacturing vessel
Can the forum inform me of their current procedural methods for dealing with the isolation of a gram negative biofilm in one of their manufacturing vessels.
Current industry recommendations for treatment and/or corrective actions for preventing repeated failures.
SO far I have managed to read into current research involving BDMDAC (a constituent of benzalkonium chloride), but would appreciate any advice on the subject prior to my recommendation to the board.
Happy Easter ;)
Thanks for your time.
