Cold plasma surface treatments to prevent biofilm formation in food industries and medical sectors

Abstract : Environmental conditions in food and medical fields enable the bacteria to attach and grow on surfaces leading to resistant bacterial biofilm formation. Indeed, the first step in biofilm formation is the bacterial irreversible adhesion. Controlling and inhibiting this adhesion is a passive approach to fight against biofilm development. This strategy is an interesting path in the inhibition of biofilm formation since it targets the first step of biofilm development. Those pathogenic structures are responsible for several foodborne diseases and nosocomial infections. Therefore, to face this public health threat, researchers employed cold plasma technologies in coating development. In this review, the different factors influencing the bacterial adhesion to a substrate are outlined. The goal is to present the passive coating strategies aiming to prevent biofilm formation via cold plasma treatments, highlighting antiadhesive elaborated surfaces. General aspects of surface treatment, including physico-chemical modification and application of cold plasma technologies, were also presented.
