Innovative solution for biofilm detection and surface contamination.


The presence of biofilms on the work surfaces of the industry during a process of elaboration is the main cause of the contamination of the final product.

Biofilms are groups of microorganisms adhered to surfaces that produce extracellular polymeric substances (SPE) that cover them, protecting them from adverse environmental conditions.

The SPE confers resistance to microorganisms and form a barrier against conventional cleaning and disinfecting procedures, which makes it difficult to remove the biofilm. These are easily developed in the presence of a hydrated environment, a source of carbon and nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium, among others.

Biofilms are invisible to the naked eye, but they can be detected

ITRAM HYGIENE has developed BioFinder, an innovative solution for biofilm detection on open surfaces and an effective tool for hygiene control.

BioFinder reacts to detect biofilms

It is Enough to spray bioFinder on the surfaces of the installation to immediately reveal the contaminated areas by a simple visual inspection.

Advantages compared to other detection methods:
  • • Reduction of time and costs
  • • Simplification of the hygiene monitoring processes of surfaces
  • • Possibility of treating large surfaces thanks to its formula and spray container
  • • High solubility in water that facilitates rinsing and does not generate waste
  • • Does not require specialized personnel for its handling thanks to its simple application and type of response

BioFinder is an orange-colored liquid that generates micro-white bubbles when it detects positive catlasa microorganisms. BioFinder has been tested in the most common microorganisms in the food industry, including pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Legionella spp. and Cronobacter Sakazakii, who are able to cause food toxiinfecciones. It has Also been tested in microorganisms that affect the life of the product, such as Pseudomonas spp.
