Founded in 2016, MicrobiotiX Co., Ltd. is a biotech venture company derived from Yonsei University’s College of Medicine, a top-tier general hospital in Asia. We provide specialized lytic bacteriophage treatment for multi-drug resistant pathogens through synergetic research efforts aimed towards bacteriophages, the microbiome and the phageome. Therapy based on bacteriophages can restore and enhance the life of patients from the grips of gram-negative multi-drug resistant pathogen “super bacteria” infections and metabolic diseases. Our labs are outfitted with the latest technology, and we have amassed a bacteriophage collection with over 300 kinds of bacteriophages and a microbiota bank that has been contributed to over the last 15 years. Currently we are in the process of finalizing a world top 10 state-of-the-art GMP facility to enter the global market. In the area of research, we aim to develop treatment not only for multi-drug resistant pathogens but also for unmet treatment needs for auto-immune and metabolic diseases.
MicrobiotiX has the following core competences: a global leading Bacteriophage collection, an established microbiota bank, and a GMP facility.
We have over 300 kinds of lytic bacteriophages that specifically target 4 out of 6 of the world’s highest risk pathogens by the WHO termed the “ESKAPE” (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter spp.) pathogens.
