Summary
The Institute of Meat and Dairy Industry offers consumers phage monitoring services in the dairy industry for preventive measures aimed at producing high-quality and safe products, limiting potential economic losses from phagolysis in the production of fermented milk products under an outsourcing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
Description
One of the reasons for the problem of reducing the activity of the ripening process (including its slowing down or stopping) at enterprises is the defeat of the starter microflora by bacteriophages. The inclusion of phage monitoring in the production control scheme is an effective preventive measure aimed at the production of high-quality and safe products by the enterprise, limiting potential economic losses fr om phagolysis in the production of fermented milk products.

Based on the results of many years of research by Institute scientists in the field of biotechnology, methodological approaches to identifying bacteriophages at dairy processing plants have been developed and a collection fund has been formed, which allows for phage monitoring at the request of enterprises.

The obtained monitoring results can be used to develop recommendations aimed at maintaining the level of bacteriophages below the critical lim it and creating an effective rotation mechanism, that is, systematically changing the types and batches of starters used in production to ensure the continuous functioning of the production of fermented dairy products.
