The world’s first sustainable solution to bacterial infection and disease.

One Breakthrough

Highly
Safe & Effective

Countless Applications

Future Safe

By 2050, the World Health Organizations predicts that 10 million people a year will be killed by antibiotic resistant superbugs. However, with our bacterio-matched phages, we can give governments, health providers, NGOs, and food growers the tools needed to ensure this doesn’t happen.

Our tailor-made bacteriophages are inexpensive, quick to produce, harmless to humans and animals, better for the environment and highly effective against exposed bacteria. Because of our unique, proprietary technology, we can produce targeted bacteria-killing phages in only weeks to months vs years as is the case with all other phage producers. Best of all, they complement and greatly reduce the need for antibiotics.

Countless
Applications

Bacteriophage therapy has unlimited uses and is effective in eradicating bacterial disease and infection in three key areas.

Food Safety

In food safety, our phages help prevent disease and the spread of disease, without introducing antibiotics into the food chain or the environment.

Animal Health

Cytophage is developing bacteriophages that will reduce and ultimately replace the use of antibiotics for illness prevention and growth enhancement in livestock, starting with poultry.

Human Health

In human health, phages can address a full range of bacterial illnesses and conditions, from treating acne and eczema, alleviating internal bacterial infections such as pneumonia, preventing wound infections and battling outbreaks such as cholera or diphtheria.

Phages can also be used for the decontamination of hospital surfaces and counters, tools and instruments, beds and curtains, and anywhere else bacterial contamination is a concern.

What is a
bacteriophage?

Bacteriophages are organisms that infect and kill bacterial cells. These natural killers of bacteria can overcome all of the cellular or organism-level defences.
