Gdansk, Poland: – Specialist CRO Phage Consultants will travel to San Francisco in June to participate in the 2016 BIO International Convention, one of the biggest biotech industry events in the world.
Phage will also be an exhibitor at the event with its stand on Booth 5776 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, showing a wide range of its bacteriophage-based solutions for safeguarding sensitive biotech processes, biological reactions and fermentations, focusing in particular on keeping bacterial fermentations free from bacteriophage contamination.
The Phage team in San Francisco will be led by CEO and founder Dr. Marcin Los, who will also use the congress’s ONE-on-ONE™ Partnering facility to explain more about Phage Consultants’ bacteriophage contamination and microbial detection tools and its troubleshooting and prevention capabilities.
“In particular, we will be reaching out to fermentation managers and biological production teams from biotech companies and biopharmaceutical divisions of pharma companies using bioreactors, showing how they can use the power of our bacteriophage expertise and solutions to defeat dangerous ‘phage contaminations of sensitive biological processes,” said Dr. Los.
“We will be bringing new and relevant insights and innovations in the fields of phage detection, contamination, control and prevention to this important international networking event,” he said.
“We now possess bacteriophage-based solutions that can be applied to decontaminate any industrial bioprocess and isolate it from a whole range of bacterial threats, with bacteriophage mixes that can be customized to any particular application,” Dr. Los added.
About Phage Consultants
Bacteriophages (phages) are viruses that infect bacteria. First discovered around 1915, phages play an important role in viral biology, used to elucidate DNA viral reproduction through lytic and lysogenic cycles. They have been used for almost a century as alternatives to antibiotics and can have therapeutic effect against multi-drug-resistant strains of many bacteria.
