Why choose PHAGOVET
PHAGOVET aims at poultry production prior to further processing (i.e. slaughter).
On the one hand, we will provide liquid technological feed additives against Salmonella and E. coli to be administered directly to animals.
On the other hand, we offer a biocide in spray to control Salmonella in different zones (e.g. living quarters, holding areas, transportation vehicles and containers).
- Cost effective
Based on the compelling results, PHAGOVET for laying hens and breeders can be more effective and cheaper than antibiotics/vaccines. Phages are easily purified and they are also self-replicating at the site of infection. Therefore, a limited number of doses is required over a short period of time.
- Quick response to phage-resistances
Phages respond quickly to the appearance of phage-resistant bacteria mutants because the frequency of phage mutation is significantly higher than that of bacteria.
- Easy administration
Easily administered, directly applied on animals and installations, avoiding both animal´s infections and surface´s contaminations.
Proof of concept trials with phages in poultry animals have proven to be safe while also significantly reducing both food-borne pathogens.
PHAGOVET is very stable with no side-effects. Substitution of the normal microbiota does not occur because phages only target specific receptors of pathogenic bacteria. Moreover, phage capsids have neither animal nor plant cell membrane degrading function.
- Environmentally friendly
The product is based on organic material ubiquitous in nature (no residues).
