Gdansk, Poland: – Testimonials from partners have confirmed successes by specialist CRO, Phage Consultants, in combating bacteriophage contamination in bio-manufacturing as well as enhancing fermentation efficiency.
Phage Consultants founder and CEO, Dr. Marcin Los, received the testimonials via his LinkedIn page.
Preventing contamination in E.coli-based production
One is from Dr. Laurent Bernier, Senior Vice-President for Compliance and Administration at BioAmber Inc. in the USA, who collaborated with Phage Consultants on a project based at Bazancourt in France to manufacture bio-based succinic acid using an E.coli production system.
“With the help of Phage Consultants, we conduced an audit of the production facility to identify potential issues related to bacteriophage contamination, and from that audit we developed a phage prevention plan,” says Dr. Bernier.
“Phage Consultants did a remarkable job and we were able to prevent phage contamination. They are very professional, efficient and most importantly trustworthy,” he adds.
Enhancing fermentation efficiency
Another testimonial comes from Alex Michine at MetGen, a specialist manufacturer active in industrial enzymes and bio renewable chemicals.
“MetGen can highly recommend Phage Consultants as reliable and highly efficient,” writes Michine.
“The project was performed smoothly, within agreed budget and resulted in significant improvement in the way our pilot fermentation facility operates.”
