Agricultural Applications

 

The increase of Antimicrobial Resistant (AMR) bacteria combines with the call from consumers for safer, antibiotic-free food products, is resulting in regulations restricting the use of antibiotics as growth promoters. This presents problems that threaten sustainable agriculture.

Bacteriophages (phages) and lytic enzymes are proposed as bacterial bio-control alternatives to antibiotics. Their unique properties make them highly promising but challenging antimicrobials. The BTC team has numerous agriculture based projects, including environmental bio-control as well as control of specific bacteria in food production and animal safety. From Clostridium perfringens to salmonella and listeria, the BTC team is developing specific phage and lytic enzymes for numerous applications.
