FOLIUM Science

FOLIUM Science leads the way in bioscience technology for the healthy biotic era. With game-changing science that harnesses naturally occurring mechanisms to selectively remove unwanted pathogenic bacteria, FOLIUM Science is working to deliver increased productivity at all points in the food and agriculture value chain.

FOLIUM Science has developed Guided Biotics ™, a unique and patented alternative technology to antibiotics. Our Guided Biotics ™ deliver precision control within complex microbiomes by selective removal of unwanted bacteria.

Application in animals is as an additive to feed or drinking water. FOLIUM Science is developing products for use in poultry, cattle, swine and aquaculture.

Application in plants will remove unwanted pathogens and spoilage organisms and support greater productivity.

Our technology can also help to condition soil with inoculators that maintain beneficial bacterial species.

Trials of the technology are proving successful. In-vivo trials have demonstrated substantial log reductions in the presence of Salmonella in poultry.

FOLIUM Science is supported by investors and by Innovate UK and works in collaboration with The Quadram Centre, Rothamsted Institute, University of Bristol and John Innes Centre. FOLIUM Science is developing relationships with animal nutrition and agri-businesses for the commercial development of the technology. FOLIUM Science is based at UnitDX in Bristol.
