The Biofilm Eradication Surface Testing (BEST Assay™ method) allows for the screening of antimicrobial surfaces and coating in a market-ready format using a matrix driven system. The assay has been used for successful 510k submissions to the FDA for coated medical devices.

  • Evaluate many types of medical devices
  • Use the actual device (finished product)
  • Allows for preconditioning with blood, urine, or saline
  • Dynamic (rather than static) environment
  • Flexible contact time with fluids (pre-challenge rinse)
  • Log reduction (planktonic and biofilm)
  • Encrustation testing
  • Antimicrobial testing (coated, incorporated)
  • Anti-adherent testing
  • Correlates with the in vivo testing outcomes
