Phage therapy and biocontrol

Applicative success of phage therapy and biocontrol is a multifactorial phenomenon. This part of our work couples the information we obtain regarding the biology of our phages, with the efficacy and durability of the phages in relevant parameters throughout the food production chain.

After determining the conditions for individual food production processes, phages are put through experiments that mimic these conditions. In this way we select and further develop optimized phage solutions to answer the demand to control pathogenic bacteria causing problems throughout the entire food chain.
