Examples of BIOFILMS hull of boats apparent disease on grape / tomato plant slimly pipes unclean floors and counters dental plaque wastewater filters oil spills unclean catheter cooling system filters

BIOFILMS : microbes able to survive environment/s become attached to surfaces, in layers (Wikipedia, 2008)

(Wikipedia, 2008) To harness their unique advantage/s occupies much research; specific characteristics to the microbes are: resist disinfectant/ antibiotic & chemical weapon/s their capability to bind H 2 O to reduce moisture loss

To harness their unique advantage/s occupies much research; specific characteristics to the microbes are:

resist disinfectant/ antibiotic & chemical weapon/s

their capability to bind H 2 O to reduce moisture loss

 

irradiative measures CONTROL over their growth requires: surface cleaning hygiene maintained filter renewal sprays and cloths harsh chemicals
