Micreos Human Health B.V. is part of the Dutch biotechnology company Micreos B.V., pioneer and market leader in the development of antibacterial phage-technology. Phage’s are abundant in the natural world, occurring in seawater, soil, and in humans. They are the natural enemy of bacteria and can help us to control dangerous pathogens. We are a people-oriented company and develop and produce our products in Netherlands based on thorough knowledge of the problems of our customers.

Micreos develops the world’s first targeted antibacterial products, set to replace antibiotics. The company is viewed as global leader spearheading this exciting new field. With Micreos endolysin technology, for the first time we can kill only the unwanted bacteria – including antibiotic resistant strains – while leaving the beneficial bacteria intact. In addition, research shows that the use of endolysins does not induce resistance. This unlocks a completely new approach in dealing with the bacteria around us – also enabling daily use, as long as needed while preserving the important biodiversity on our skin and in our gut.
