Gdansk, Poland: – Specialist CRO Phage Consultants will showcase a new custom-made bacteriophage formulation to suppress bacterial contamination in bioprocesses when it returns to the prestige BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology in Montreal, Canada later this month.
This is the eighth year that the Polish-based bacteriophage and bioreactor contamination specialist has attended this high profile biotechnology and bio-chemicals event.

Bacterial contamination solution
“With every successive BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology, we have been able to bring some new and relevant insight or innovation in the fields of phage detection, contamination, control and prevention,” said Phage Consultants CEO and founder, Dr. Marcin Los.
“This year we are able to show a developed solution that can be applied to decontaminate any industrial bioprocess from bacterial threats,” said Dr. Los.
“It uses the power of bacteriophages to defeat dangerous bacterial contaminations of sensitive biological processes. The precise bacteriophage mix can be customized to any particular application,” Dr. Los explained.
Dr. Los will also be available to explain more about Phage Consultants’ bacteriophage contamination and microbial detection tools and its troubleshooting and prevention capabilities at one-top-one sessions using the congress’s BIOPartnering facility.
“We believe our solutions will be of high interest to the BIO Congress audience of production and management teams from biotech companies and biopharmaceutical divisions of pharma companies as well as industrial companies using bioreactors,” said Dr. Los.
