Field of Activity

At Phagos, we use bacteria’s natural predator, the bacteriophage, to overcome infectious diseases in aquaculture.


Phagos was born from a shared vision: to use entrepreneurship for positive impact maximisation. In this scope, Adèle James, PhD in Molecular Microbiology, and Alexandros Pantalis, Serial Tech Entrepreneur, are developing a long term, natural solution to fight antiobiotic resistance.

Description of the Products / Services / Technology

Bacteriophages are the single deadliest entity on the entire planet, they are responsible for trillions of deaths every day … except they only kill bacteria !
At Phagos, we canalize their exceptional power. By optimising phage populations we keep dangerous bacterial populations under control.

Customer references / Collaborations / Highlights

Phagos is backed by Entrepreneur First and has been selected to join Wilco’s “CleanTech & Agritech” program.
Moreover, we have confirmed our bacteriophages’ in vitro efficiency, and our in vivo tests show a drastic reduction in animal mortality when treated with our solution.
In consequence, we are currently organising a seed round.

Collaborations Sought:

Research labs, specialised aquaculture actors, animal health groups, Asian commercial networks, BioTech investors interested in seed rounds.

  • Further Information

    STRENGTHS: Demonstrating natural methods’ long term efficiency against infectious diseases, with a potential lasting impact on modern medicine

    INNOVATION ASSETS: Bacteriophages’ applications are particularly diverse, yet they are mostly used experimentally. Our objective is to unleash their potential.

    Citation“Resistance to antibiotics could cause more deaths than cancer by 2050. In order to avoid this mounting crisis, it is urgent to develop alternatives such as phage therapy”
