What is biofilm?

 

The term biofilm refers to the layer of microorganisms (bacteria, diatoms, fungi, etc.) that grows on any surface in contact with water or other liquids. Most often (including this website), this term is used to indicate bacterial biofilm. It has been demonstrated that biofilm can grow even in extreme conditions, causing damages that can range from Legionella contamination to Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC).
