Validation of the Oxi-Cell Ozone System for the Elimination of Biofilms

Project overview

National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC), UK. Proof of Concept (POC) Round 2 (Research Grant). £74,405 (£39,524 from NBIC, £25,000 from Oxi-Tech Solutions).
Oxi-Tech have developed the ozone producing technology Oxi-Cell to combat bacterial biofilms. Oxi-Cell is fitted in-line to water systems to inhibit microbial growth. To validate this technology and facilitate the commercial uptake of OxiCell, we will quantify the antimicrobial effects of this system on planktonic and biofilm populations.
