Fixed Phage is a biotechnology company developing and commercialising unique, patented, anti-infective technologies based on bacteriophage immobilisation and stabilisation. It is in possession of a well-proven and comprehensively patented surface modification technology, hat irreversibly attaches and immobilises bacteriophage on a wide range of carrier materials, thereby creating biologically active, antimicrobial surfaces. Bacteriophages are natural antibiotics that can kill pathogenic bacteria while leaving the rest of the bacterial population intact.
Fixed Phage’s technology can be applied across a number of industries with a key focus on: Animal Health, Food Packaging, Acquaculture and Human Health & Wellbeing.
Fixed Phage announced in March 2020 a strategic collaboration with Carus Animal Health, in the companion animal field, to identify, develop and commercialise stable and specific bacteriophages and their application through Fixed Phage’s patented technology.
