1.343 227


ÖZET: Bu çalışmada, malik asit uygulamalarının S. aures biyofilmleri üzerindeki antibiyofilm aktiviteleri incelenmiştir. Biyofilmlerin malik asit uygulamaları ile azalma oranları, klor uygulaması ile karşılaştırılmıştır. Malik asit ve klor uygulamalarının biyofilmler üzerindeki etkileri hem polistren hemde çelik yüzeylerde incelenmiştir. Malik asit uygulamaları, S. aureus biyofilmlerini klor uygulamasından daha etkin bir şekilde engellenmiş ve ortadan kaldırmıştır. Çelik yüzeylerde biyofilmlerin azalma oranlarının daha fazla olduğu belirlenmiştir. Sonuçlar, malik asitin gıda ile temas eden yüzeylerde biyofilm oluşumları için ümit verici çevreyle dost bir uygulama olabileceğini göstermektedir.

Antibiofilm Effects of Malic Acid Treatments on S. Aureus Biofilms


ABSTRACT: In this study, antibiofilm activities of malic acid treatments on S. aureus biofilmswere investigated. The reduction ratios of biofilms by malic acid treatments were compared with chlorine treatment. The effects of sanitizers on biofilms were evaluated on both on polystyrene and stainless steel surfaces. Malic acid treatment more efficiently inhibitedand removed S. aureus biofilms than chlorine treatment.The higher reduction ratios were obtained on stainless steel surfaces. The results show that malic acidcould be a potential promising eco-friendlytreatment for biofilm formations in food contact surfaces.

Key Words: Biofilm, malic acid, S. aureus, food contact surfaces
