Use Berkey Biofilm Drops to extend the shelf life of water being stored for up to 5 years and even more. Using Berkey Biofilm Drops eliminates the need to rotate your stored water every 6-7 months and keeps your water crystal clear, fresh tasting and odor free.
Berkey BioFilm Drops have been scientifically engineered for use in the defense of biofilm formation in ceramic water filters and water storage containers alike.
Berkey Biofilm Drops work by incorporating multiple barrier processes for inhibiting the growth and regrowth of biofilms, utilizing natural mineral ions of copper and silver in an ion technology along with other additives and complexants to synergistically aid in the control and precipitation of iron, calcium, minerals and scale where biofilm bacteria attach, form, feed and breed. The Berkey Biofilm drops are a great return on investment product.
1) What makes up a biofilm?
The water system biofilm is highly complex, containing corrosion products, clay material, fresh water diatoms, and filamentous bacteria. The biofilm on the medical device, on the other hand, appears to be composed of a single, coccoid organism and the associated extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) matrix.
2) How biofilms are formed?
The biofilms are formed when bacteria adhere to a solid surface and enclose themselves in a sticky polysaccharide. Once this polysaccharide is formed the bacteria can no longer leave the surface, and when new bacteria are produced they stay within the polysaccharide layer
3) What causes biofilm formation?
Bacteria can survive long periods of time in water, animal manure, and soil, causing biofilm formation on plants or in the processing equipment. … Biofilms have been connected to about 80% of bacterial infections in the United States. In produce, microorganisms attach to the surfaces and biofilms develop internally
4) What does biofilm mean in microbiology?
Biofilm. (bī’ō-fĭlm’) A complex structure adhering to surfaces that are regularly in contact with water, consisting of colonies of bacteria and usually other microorganisms such as yeasts, fungi, and protozoa that secrete a mucilaginous protective coating in which they are encased.
