It develops natural phage products against dangerous bacteria in the food chain and is viewed as product leader in this field. LISTEX™, the company's product against the deadly Listeria monocytogenes (well known for its risk to pregnant women), is used globally by food processing companies. It is a culture of safe, natural phages, against Listeria in meat, cheese, fish, vegetables, fruit and other food products. Today, LISTEX helps many food processors in their fight against Listeria, without any effect on the properties of the treated food product. This means it leaves desired bacteria in place, i.e. in starter cultures for cheese production. Recently, Micreos food safety introduced a new product (SALMONELEX™), which is effective against Salmonella in the food chain. Acquisitions following this vacancy are not appreciated.
