Minimum Biofilm Inhibitory Concentration Assay Services

At CD BioSciences, we are dedicated to providing quality MBIC assay services that will equip you with actionable insights for your biofilm related study.

Introduction of MBIC

Minimal Biofilm Inhibitory Concentration (MBIC) assay refers to a specialized laboratory method used to determine the lowest concentration of an antimicrobial agent that inhibits the biofilm formation of an organism. Biofilms, communities of microorganisms enclosed within a self-constructed matrix, exhibit distinct characteristics compared to free-floating organisms, with enhanced resistance against antimicrobial treatments being the most noteworthy. MBIC assay not only serves as a diagnostic tool for biofilm-related infections but also aids in the development, assessment, and selection of new antimicrobial agents. Given the tricky nature of biofilms and their resistance to conventional treatment methods, it's crucial to determine the MBIC that effectively inhibits biofilm production.
