BioFilm Control, a French microbiology laboratory founded in 2005, offers cutting-edge technology for evaluating the effect of cosmetic products on the microbiota. The laboratory offers companies in the industrial, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary or agri-food sectors the opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of their products on the microbiota and biofilm (complex community of microorganisms, mainly made up of bacteria, which colonize the surface of the skin to help it play its barrier role).
BioFilm Control operates from two sites: an experimental technical laboratory for research and development, testing and analysis based in Saint-Beauzire (Puy-de-Dôme) and a sales office in Paris.
Among its flagship devices, we find the BioFilm Ring Test® unique proprietary technology protected by 5 patents. This device makes it possible to qualify the impact of the molecules tested on bacteria, including their ability to form a biofilm. By combining this technology with a full range of analytical approaches, BioFilm Control offers its customers the ability to determine the optimal dose, and even adjust their formulations as needed, giving them the ability to claim their beneficial effects on the microbiota .
To carry out these microbiological tests, BioFilm Control has a very large stock library (more than 2000 bacterial strains). The company thus offers complete support, ranging from the study plan to scientific and marketing analyzes of the results adapted to the needs of its clients.
Always more concerned about the satisfaction of its customers and the well-being of consumers, BioFilm Control now offers a certification entitled “Microbiota Friendly” which attests to respect for the balance of the microbiota of its customers' active ingredients and formulations. By focusing on responsiveness, innovation and excellence, this small, human-sized company (14 employees) works daily to raise awareness among manufacturers and consumers of the importance of the microbiota, its preservation and its balance.
