Microbial solutions to promote
animal health sustainably.
Bacterial infections in livestock decreases growth performance and causes mortalities. Conventionally antibiotics are used as a preventative measure. Antibiotic use as a prophylactic is unsustainable as it selects for resistance development.
Biotikum solves the bacterial pathogen threat in animals by using host-specific probiotics to promote the development of the gut microbiome, which in turn protects against pathogen, alleviating the need for antibiotics.
Probiotic Research & Development
We research and develop cutting-edge microbial solutions for animals and the agricultural industry to promote sustainable farming practices while improving profitability.
Animal farming and Pets
The gut microbiome is important for health, as it acts as the first line of defense against pathogens. We provide probiotics to promote gut health, which plays an integral part in health, providing protection against pathogens.
We provide soil microbial inoculants which promote plant health, improves nutrient uptake, which improves crop yield.
Genetic Identification of Microorganisms
Biotikum provides genetic identification services of unknown microbial isolates for various industries on the African continent. We make use of current technologies to identify these isolates using house-keeping or whole genome sequence homology.
If you need assistance in determining the identity of an unknown microbial isolate, get in touch with us.
