REDUCE THE USE OF ANTIBIOTICS WITH DRYGIENE™ - BACTERIA TESTING:

The objective of this test was to compare various drying powders for their efficacy with regard to inhibiting bacterial growth. Heat mats were swabbed in an inhabited piglet farrowing room. Samples were cultured on nutrient agar. After incubating for 48 hours there was substantial growth. Typing revealed that Strep, Staph, and E.Coli were all present. Bacteria colonies were homogenized and used to seed more culture plates. Culture plates were divided into quarters and applied three treatments per plate, leaving one quarter untreated as a control. The treatments consisted of 100 mg disks of each drying powder applied to the center of the quartered, seeded section of culture plate. Plates were incubated at 35°C and observed and documented bacterial growth of each treated area.

Strep, Staph and E. Coli were all present in the bacteria test.
No bacteria growth in treated area.

RESULTS OF BACTERIA TESTING AT 48 HOURS OF INCUBATION:

DRYGIENE™: No bacterial growth in treated area - 2.5cm halo surrounding treated area.
Product A: Bacterial growth right to the edge of the treated area - No halo surrounding treated area. Product B: Bacterial growth right to the edge of the treated area - No halo surrounding treated area. Product C: No bacterial growth in treated area - 2.2cm halo surrounding treated area. Product D: Bacterial growth right to the edge of the treated area - No halo surrounding treated area Product E: Bacterial growth right to the edge of the treated area - No halo surrounding treated area Product F: Bacterial growth right to the edge of the treated area - No halo surrounding treated area

CULTURE PLATES FROM TEST:

The images below show the actual culture plates from the dessicant powder bacteria test. The discoloration on the culture plate is the growing bacteria. The disks are the drying powder treatment areas and the clear rings or “halo” surrounding the DRYGIENE™ are areas free of bacterial growth.

CONCLUSION - BACTERIA TESTING:

DRYGIENE™ is a very effective treatment for controlling growth of the most common bacteria in livestock facilities. Of the 6 products tested, DRYGIENE™ ranked the highest for anti-bacterial effectiveness and absorption.
This test further demonstrates that DRYGIENE™ is an excellent tool for improving the hygiene of pet and livestock facilities and ultimately improving the health of your animals.
