Dr. Brill at 33rd ECCMID
Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH Institute for Hygiene and Microbiology. will be present at the 33rd ECCMID from the 15th-18th April 2023 in Copenhagen. Our team will have a poster about the project: "BioRes Test: A standardized test to determine the development of resistance in microorganisms against biocides". Here is a short summary: Surface disinfectants and antimicrobial surfaces are important for hygiene and the protection of materials. However, bacteria can develop resistance to disinfectants and material-protection agents, increasing the risk of cross-resistance to antibiotics. Disinfectants and antimicrobial material coatings are approved within the framework of the EU biocide regulation but there is currently a lack of standardized test methods that would provide industrial applicants and the assessing authorities with a framework for assessment. The aim of this project is to develop a standardized test method to determine the potential for the development of resistance and cross-resistance when using surface disinfectants and antimicrobial surfaces. The focus is on the development of resistance through de novo mutations and the test procedures are developed on the basis of procedures previously published in scientific journals. We are looking forward to exciting conversations!

New research project: ICEBIO
ICEBIO is a PhD network that will train the next generation of experts in glacier microbiology and biogeochemistry. ICEBIO will provide a database of the functional diversity and potential of the glacier biome, which will not only greatly improve our understanding of a threatened biome, but also demonstrate the potential for exploiting economic and ecological services. Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH will, among other things, provide a risk assessment regarding pathogenic organisms from the glacier biome, including the inclusion of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Further Information: https://www.icebio.eu/pages/project/index.html The ICEBIO Doctoral Network is supported by a grant from the European Commission’s MSCA Doctoral Network program under project number 101072761

CAHMV 2022 + 2023: Thanks! + "Save the Date"
At the end of November, the time had finally come: The 8th Conference of Applied Hygiene, Microbiology and Virology once again attracted an international audience of experts with participants from 15 nations to the AMRERON Hotel Hamburg Speicherstadt and online participants in front of their screens. The lecture topics were again of great interest and in some cases stimulated an intensive exchange, with numerous questions also being asked online - and the social program in the evening went down very well, too. Once again, a big thank you to all participants and speakers for making CAHMV 2022 such a success, and especially also to our sponsors GOJO, Dr. Weigert and BioGenius. The 9th Conference of Applied Hygiene, Microbiology and Virology is planned for 30 November - 01 December 2023, as usual as a hybrid event online and in the Hamburg Speicherstadt. Please save the date. We look forward to seeing you again, then perhaps with a joint mulled wine in the evening?

Are you interested in wound healing? We are as well!
And in order to be a good partner to you in the usual competent manner with regard to this issue, we develop tests for you and with you on the subject of antimicrobial wound treatment products. Since this sector still has some catching up to do in terms of international standards, but we already see a need for action today, we are active on various issues. In particular, the establishment of the concept of biofilms in the context of wound treatment is of great interest, because its special properties must first be understood and taken into account in the treatment. Therefore, we conduct research with our collaboration partners (e.g.: Prof. Dr. med. Ewa Stürmer, UKE; PD Dr. Cornelia Wiegand, Jena University Hospital; Dr. med. Thomas Eberlein, Woundconsulting) on various topics and share our findings on an expert stage: Influence on decolonization and biofilm reduction of urinary tract catheters by rinsing with polyhexanide (DOI: 10.1186/s12894-018-0362-3 and 10.1186/s12894-021-00826-3) Antimicrobial wound dressings in their effectiveness against Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms (DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2021.664030) Alternative treatment of biofilms by stimulating wound healing using “Pulsed low-intensity laser treatment” (DOI: 10.1016/j.jphotobiol.2022.112504) Development of a new 3D skin infection model as an alternative to animal models as part of the "InVitroWund" cooperation project (DGKH Congress 2022, CAHMV Congress 2021) What we can do for you: Do you have an interesting project on the subject and do you need advisory support? Due to our strong commitment at standardization level and our broad network, we can offer you our help even before the experimental work. Do you already have a question that you would like to support experimentally? Then please contact us. This can be in the context of biofilms but also generally on the subject of wound dressings. We not only offer you the standard tests that you need for your approval (e.g.: suspension tests according to EN 13727 and EN 13624). We also plan and carry out projects based on our established in-house methods in order to achieve standardization today, even without an internationally valid standard. Is your project planning possibly still in the future? Then we are pleased to inform you that prEN17854:2022-07 has currently reached draft status, so that we may soon be able to offer you an internationally valid test standard. Do you have a request that is not listed here? No problem, please contact our team at Scientificservice@brillhygiene.com. Current: Since the topic always provides an opportunity for exchange, we cordially invite you to the event "Online Update Hygiene and Infection Prevention" of the Life Science Nord network on December 8th, 2022 (https://lifesciencenord.de/de/events/detail/online-update-hygiene-und-fection-prevention-10.html), which among other things focuses on wound treatment and which you can also view after uploading on-demand in the media center (https://academy.brillinstitutes.com/de/Mediathek/webinare). We look forward to exchanging ideas with you!
