Phages4A is a spinoff of the Institute for Information and Communication Technologies (IICT) at the School of Business and Engineering Vaud (HEIG-VD) in Switzerland.
Phages4A mission is accelerate the use of phages as treatment against antibiotic-resistant bacteria by combining in-silico biology and the latest discoveries in microbiology.
More specifically we aim to:
Help laboratories to speed their processes to identify host range (i.e. the spectrum of strains of bacterial species that a given strain of phage can infect).
Provide to hospitals and clinics with software
Provide to hospitals and clinics with software tools to accelerate the treatment of patients suffering of diseases related antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Bring our products to other industries
Bring our products and services to other industries including but not limited to food safety, aquaculture, veterinary, and agriculture where bacteria resistant to antibiotics is a important issue.
