“Once again, we welcome this great opportunity to share knowledge with fermentation managers and biological production teams to show how our bacteriophage-based solutions 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,” he commented.
About Phage Consultants
Phage Consultants is a contract research and manufacturing organization that specializes in bacteriophage detection and characterization and production.
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.
Founded in Gdansk, Poland, in 2007, PC have become world leaders in using the power of bacteriophage technology in bioprocess infection and contamination control and assisting companies whose production is based on microbial activities in preventing bacteriophage contamination, along with bacterial, fungal and viral contaminations.
Phage Consultants are also specialists in the field of bacteriophage biology with specific expertise on phage activity in bioprocessing. Its team provides unique assistance to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, offering a range of services from personal training to consulting and process optimization in phage growth limitation. The company also advises and assists clients in the development of new production facilities.
