Gdansk, Poland:– Specialist CRO, Phage Consultants, will return to the Recent Advances in Fermentation Technology (RAFT) conference in November, to share latest advances in the use of bacteriophages to protect processes from contamination.

Phage first attended RAFT 10 in 2013 and is returning to the event as an exhibitor.

Phage Consultants founder and CEO, Dr. Marcin Los, and Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Johanna Los, will be available on the company’s stand at booth 12 in the exhibition area of the Clearwater Beach Hilton.

Fermentation contamination

“This is a very focused meeting attended by fermentation teams concerned with biological and bacterial processes,” said Marcin Los. “We have a great deal to offer in helping to keep processes trouble free, by protecting against bacteriophages and also in using phages to prevent more serious contaminations,” added Dr. Los.

“We will also be showing how precise bacteriophage mixes can be customized to any particular contamination prevention application,” added Joanna Los.

Marcin Los, who is a world authority on bacteriophage control and use, recently delivered two lectures to the influential ISBioTech Fall Meeting in Virginia on “Selection and Characterization of Bacterial Production Cells from a Bacteriophage Perspective” in cell banking, as well as “Use of Bacteriophages as Anti-Bacterial Agents in Bioprocesses” in contamination control.

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.

Phage has become a world leader 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 phage, bacterial, fungal and viral contaminations.

Phage Consultants are 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.
