Micreos develops phage-based products against specific dangerous bacteria, focusing on real solutions for human- and animal health and in food safety.

Phages can be regarded as the natural enemies of bacteria, and therefore are logical agents for the control of bacterial pathogens, such as MRSA, Listeria, Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter, etc. From this natural solution Micreos created PhageGuard, an effective organic solution to make food safer.

Micreos has been a pioneer in the field of phage technology and the first to bring an FDA GRAS-approved (Generally Recognized as Safe) phage product, PhageGuard Listex™, to market. The PhageGuard portfolio is rapidly expanding, with a new product PhageGuard-S effective against Salmonella, and more scheduled new product releases on the horizon.

PhageGuard brings the latest food safety tool for cooked meats, fish, dairy, cheese, produce and more, killing pathogenic bacteria without becoming an ingredient itself. It’s use has no effect on taste, color or smell of the final product and as a processing aid it does not require labeling.  Micreos has a modern Phage Technology Centre, where besides the R&D and production activities, customer application work is conducted.
