Optimization of Bacteriophage Production for use in Treatment and Prevention of Bacterial Diseases in Swine

This project will involve research into the optimal production and purification methods for bacteriophages that are effective against bacterial infections in pigs. Cytophage’s bacteriophages will provide a highly effective, environmentally safe, and a cost competitive alternative to antibiotics in the pork industry. This project will benefit Cytophage by helping to advance our technology and product development.
