    Gdansk, Poland: – Specialist bacteriophage CRO Phage Consultants (PC) is making its fourth appearance at the Viruses of Microbes (VOM) European conference, this time in Tbilisi, Georgia.

    Once again, Phage Consultants will use the event to communicate its advanced bacteriophage expertise in contamination prevention in biological processes and to exchange knowledge with leading phage science practitioners.

    Research and production capabilities

    PC will also use the conferences networking sessions to showcase its bacteriophage-based contract research and manufacturing services.

    The company’s presence at VOM 2023 will be headed by CEO and co-founder Dr. Marcin Los,, recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on the role of phages in microbiology.

    Dr. Los commented: ”We are delighted to be returning to the VOM conference,  which has opened up a  new dimension in viral research that recognizes bacteriophages as one of the  viruses of microorganisms as predominant component of the biosphere and therefore significant players in the global ecology, public health, microbial physiology, and evolution.”

    About Phage Consultants

    Phage Consultants is a contract research and manufacturing organization that specializes in bacteriophage detection, characterization and production.

    Bacteriophages (phages) are viruses that infect bacteria. First discovered around 1915, phages played an important role in understanding viral biology, for example in elucidating viral reproduction in 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. In biotechnology, their activity can be devastating when bacterial cultures get infected. They can cause long-lasting recurrent infections which prevent successful production and in the past some facilities have been forced to close down due to their activities.

    Founded in Gdansk, Poland, in 2007, PC 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 bacteriophage contamination, along with bacterial, fungal and viral contaminations.

    Phage Consultants is also a team specialist in the field of bacteriophage biology with specific expertise in phage activity in bioprocesses. The 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.

    About VOM 2023

    The Viruses of Microbes (VOM) series of biannual conferences was launched in Paris in 2010 and since then has travelled all around Europe, reaching the Georgian capital Tbilisi in 2023.

    VOM 2023 is a five day event opening July 3 at the city’s Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU) founded in 1918 as the first national university in Georgia and the first higher education institution in the South Caucasus region.

    The conference will serve as a platform for discussions on all aspects of studies on viruses of bacteria, archaea and unicellular eukaryotes, including new views on virus taxonomy, and ranging from the role and diversity of viruses in different ecosystems to development of virus-inspired new technologies.

    A particular session will mark the centenary of the Eliava Institute of Bacteriophages founded by Felix d’Herelle and Giorgi Eliava in 1922 in Tbilisi, and will give an outline of current state and latest developments of application of bacteriophages in medicine, veterinary, food safely and biotechnology.

    The event is organized by VOM organization in association with the Georgian Association for General and Applied Microbiology (GAGAM) with more information at:
