Research Collaboration

Our collaborations are focused on the applied research of bacteriophages for phage therapy, which is becoming a promising alternative therapy, due to the continual rise of resistance to antibiotics in pathogens causing serious diseases. In the past, in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies, we have contributed to the successful resolution of projects focused on the preparation and invention of new phage preparations for the treatment of staphylococcal infections. We also investigate the use of phage lytic enzymes prepared by genetic engineering methods as effective enzybiotics.

Experience to date and current activities
  • The preparation of polyvalent staphyloccocal phages with a broader host-range
  • The invention of the phage preparation Stafal® for the treatment of staphylococcal infections
  • The development of diagnostic kits for identifying staphylococcal bacteriophages
  • The design of genetic constructs and vectors for the expression of recombinant phage enzybiotics
  • Our team is involved in the activities of the international Expert Round Table on Acceptance and Re-implementation of Bacteriophage Therapy
What we offer in the field of research and development
  • Consultation in assessing the safety of phages for the preparation of remedies
  • Bioinformatic analysis of the genomes of phages and their propagation strains
  • Testing of the lytic effect of phages on bacterial strains
  • Diagnostics and typing of clinically significant staphylococcus species
We are engaged in long-term collaborations with the following workplaces and firms in the Czech Republic and abroad
