SAN DIEGO, OCTOBER 20, 2017 - Employing the xCELLigence® technology from ACEA Biosciences, a team of Spanish scientists have developed a real-time assay for screening anti-biofilm treatments and quantifying their efficacy. Biofilms are surface-attached communities of bacterial or fungal cells that are enmeshed in an extensive extracellular matrix which makes them more resistant to both antibiotics and the immune system. With biofilms estimated to be responsible for >60% of microbial infections, and 80% of chronic infections in humans, finding ways to disrupt established biofilms is of critical importance. In recent years there has been a growing interest in exploiting bacteriophages, or the lytic proteins that they encode, to treat biofilms.
