Sometimes conventional wisdom doesn’t work as well as we’d like. Consider how we protect ourselves from pathogens. Traditionally, we have been taught that the right choice is to destroy as many bacteria and viruses as possible. We’ve spent the last hundred-plus years using various chemicals – in combination with a considerable amount of scrubbing – to kill microbes: soaps, detergents, bleach, quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) and oxidizers. This seemed like a good approach.

Insidious Biofilm

Unfortunately, we can’t poison our way to clean. Microbes produce a biological matrix, or biofilm, that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have confirmed shelters both bacteria and viruses, protecting them from these chemical cleaners

As a result, despite our best efforts, we are still dealing with dangerous pathogen outbreaks. In fact, these pathogens have become even stronger, learning to resist our standard measures, evolving into what we call “Superbugs”. Essentially, by sticking with these outdated, chemistry only based solutions, we have been throwing good money after bad and contributing to the ongoing escalation of this problem.

A core scientific principle of microbiology is that no matter how aggressive the chemistry used to kill microbes, they will ultimately adapt. This is why we now require ever more toxic, dangerous chemistry cleaning agents, such as Sixth Generation Quats, to address the increasingly stronger pathogens and try to impact the biofilm they produce.

But now, after more than a century of ineffective chemical cleaning, we have finally learned: To defeat biofilm, we must partner chemistry with biology.

Probiotics: The Clean Solution

So what’s the new strategy against pathogens? Rather than poisoning them, we simply outcompete them – with safe, beneficial probiotics.

Probiotics are non-pathogenic (i.e., good) bacteria that cover surfaces and make it difficult for dangerous pathogens to gain a toehold. Z Bioscience has bioengineered probiotics that naturally produce biosurfactants to neutralize biofilm. The good bacteria simply take over a surface, reducing biofilm and blocking pathogenic microbes.

How do we determine the effectiveness of the use of probiotic bacteria in cleaning?

Back in 1995 the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), after years of research, determined that measuring surfaces using Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels was a meaningful, immediate, cost effective way to determine the probability of the presence of a potentially harmful pathogen biofilm.

Using ATP readings before cleaning, then immediately after cleaning and again several hours later, independent lab tests have demonstrated that probiotic cleaners provide a longer-lasting level of effective cleaning.

Impressive Results

This approach can improve health and safety in hospitals, schools, assisted-living facilities, transport and other public areas and facilities.

For instance, the implications for schools and commercial office buildings alone are staggering: lower absenteeism, increased workplace productivity and healthier, safer and more hygienic environments.

There are other benefits. Many of the toxins traditional cleaners use to eliminate microbes aren’t healthy for people nor are they good for the environment. Our products, on the other hand, are biodegradable, non-toxic and low VOC.

But the main benefit is that they work. Z Bioscience cleaners are proven against salmonella, staph, E. coli and other harmful pathogens. Even better, these products last a long time, keeping pathogens away and providing a green, sustainable solution.
