DESCRIPTION

In the last few years, bacterial biofilms has become a major concern in hospital settings. Despite an impressive amount of paper published on the clinical aspects of biofilms infections, the dynamics of biofilms in a building are not always well understood from an infection control stand point.

This webinar will provide participants the tools to understand the dynamics of bacterial biofilms on inanimate surfaces. Participants will also learn about methods that can be used to measure bacterial biofilms and an overview of different approaches for the control of bacterial Biofilms.
