Intralytix, Inc. is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, production and marketing of bacteriophage-based products to control bacterial pathogens in environmental, food processing, and medical settings.
Bacteriophages (bacteria-eater: from the Greek phago meaning "to eat" or "to develop at the expense of") are the most abundant microorganisms on earth. They are the natural enemies of bacteria. Lytic bacteriophages can very effectively kill their targeted specific bacteria without affecting anything else, ensuring an unprecedented level of safety for an antimicrobial.
