Realco

More than 7 recalls per week in Europe are linked to a pathogen able to generate Biofilm.

Biofilm is the dominant environment for bacteria:

  • 1,000 to 10,000 times more bacteria grow in a biofilm rather than as free (planktonic) cells
  • 1,000 times more resistant to biocides than planktonic cells
Hygiene has become a major concern and the failure to treat biofilm causes several problems:

  • Product contamination leads to economic losses (recall of products) or strategic risks (loss of public confidence)
  • Reduced the quality and shelf life of products
  • Reduced productivity and performance
  • Bacterial resistance to disinfection (neutralizing biocides or changing their physiological status)
  • Surface corrosion (biocorrosion)
That is why it is essential that companies maintain good hygienic practices and comply with high customer specifications, stringent biofilm monitoring and control.

Realco is a Belgian biotech, which pushes back the boundaries of traditional chemistry by developing, manufacturing and distributing enzyme-based hygiene solutions and processes. It has become the world leader in the field of enzymatic hygiene and decontamination, thereby opening the way to innovative solutions that are increasingly effective, economic and ecological
