dc.description.abstractListeria monocytogenes is one of the most concerning pathogens for the food industry due to its ability to form biofilms, particularly in difficult-to-clean sites of processing facilities. There is a current industry-wide lack of data to refer to when selecting a strategy to control L. monocytogenes biofilms in the food premises. Many strategies have been developed to study biofilm formation of bacteria; however, few have targeted L. monocytogenes biofilms under dynamic conditions. This study addresses the biofilm formation ability of L. monocytogenes on stainless steel and polycarbonate under dynamic conditions using TSBYE or BHI as media culture at 30 °C or 37 °C. Higher cell counts were recovered at 30 °C in TSBYE on polycarbonate while lower counts were obtained at 37 °C in BHI on stainless steel (P < 0.05). Nonetheless, all factors (temperature, media and material) were statistically significant (P < 0.05) and an interaction between temperature and media was observed (P < 0.05). To our knowledge, this work represents an initial framework to develop L. monocytogenes biofilms under different dynamic conditions. The use of CDC Biofilm Reactor is not widely used yet in the food industry and represent a novel approach to help sanitary control strategies implementation.en_US
