The Effect of Anolyte & Catholyte on Biofilms

Introduction Adhesion to surfaces is a common and well known behaviour of microorganisms in oligotrophic habitats (Zobell, 1943). This adhesion and subsequent metabolism lead to the formation of biofilms (39). Bacterial biofilms promote increased biomass deposition (54), resulting in fluid flow resistance, loss of heat exchange and microbial induced corrosion in industrial water cooling systems

Efficacy of Anolyte in controlling surface microflora of maize kernels

Introduction Electrochemically synthesized reagents are rapidly finding application in a variety of manmade environments. Not only does this technology offer a cost-effective alternative to existing technologies, but is also contributing to the protection of the environment through the implementation of electromechanical-based effluent treatment and waste minimization processes. Electrochemically synthesized reagents (with reference to the Anolyte)

Hand Wash Trials using Anolyte Solutions

Introduction Normal human skin is a complex organ and the bacterial populations associated with it are complex in kind and number. The skin supports the growth of both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria (Evans, 1950; Nester et al., 1995). The most prevalent organisms are the anaerobe, Propionobacter, although Micrococci and Staphylococci were also isolated in most

Microbiological Fingerprinting of Anolyte

Introduction Bacterial colonisation of surfaces in an aqueous environments is a basic strategem for survival in nature as nutrients are more available at the solid – liquid interface (Hoppe, 1984; Lawrence, et al., 1987). The resulting aggregates form microcolonies which develop into biofilms (McCoy et al., 1981). These biofilms promote corrosion of metals by creating

ECA Water as a Non-Polluting Biofilm Control

Introduction: ECA Water as a Non-Polluting Biofilm Control Bacterial colonization of surfaces in an aqueous environments is a basic strategy for survival in nature as nutrients are more available at the solid Рliquid interface. The resulting aggregates form micro-colonies, which develop into biofilms. Bacterial biofilms have negative consequences in the food industry. A number of

Electro chemically Activated Water as an Anti-Fouling Technology

Research has indicated the problem of microbial resistance to non-oxidising biocides. Very little information is available on the biodegradability of these compounds in natural water systems. This makes these compounds hazardous from an environmental point of view. Chlorine is the most widely used oxidizing biocide, with its own limitations. An environmentally sensible alternative to Chlorine

Anolyte as a Disinfectant

Introduction Dairy products such as milk, butter, cream and cheese are all susceptible to microbial spoilage because of their chemical composition. Milk is an excellent growth medium for all of the common spoilage organisms, including molds and yeasts. Fresh, nonpasteurized milk generally contains varying numbers of microorganisms, depending on the care employed in milking, cleaning,

Cutting Boards & High Bacterial Count

Introduction Cutting boards used to slice meat may become contaminated by organisms such as Salmonella, Staph aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Clostridium, etc. The sources of these infective organisms include worker’s hands, cutting utensils and surface carcase contamination. Thereafter, all meat products that are cut on the same board may become contaminated, the organisms then multiplying on storage
