We Use Naturally Occurring Phages to Reduce Harmful Food Pathogens before or during Food Processing.
Food and water safety are a global concern. And it is easy to see the devastating repercussions of food contamination in market news from almost every region. At stake in this market are hundreds of millions of dollars worth of food products being recalled and discarded due to contamination, human infection, illness and death.
The US Center for Disease Control estimates that each year over 76 million people in the US become ill, 300,000 are hospitalized and over 5,000 die, from eating food contaminated with a food borne pathogen such as E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella.
Our food safety products are designed to reduce the number of harmful food pathogens via bacteriophage technology. Our aim is to solve the growing global concern over the treatment of bacterial disease in light of increased bacterial resistance to antibiotics and the tremendous residues being accumulated from the use of hazardous chemicals.
Bacteriophage technology has the ability to provide outstanding control of bacterial contamination while no ill effect on humans, animals, plants, and even insects and beneficial micro flora and fauna. Our products pose absolutely no threat of the long-term buildup of hazardous residues.
OmniLytics, subsidiary of Phagelux AgriHealth, has developed, and is continuing to test products that help solve many food and water safety issues caused by E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella. In fact, our technology has successfully treated Salmonella-infected water in commercial shrimp habitats and E. coli contamination on beef prior to processing.
We continue to research and develop solutions that provide safe and reliable protection for our food and water resources. Our work includes in-house initiatives designed to capitalize on market opportunities, partnership driven research, and development of products that have proven effective in the field to solve bacteria-related problems for food and water management.
