Bacteria growing on surfaces create biofilms, which are resistant to antimicrobial treatments.

These biofilms pose a significant problem for agriculture and food safety.

This video shows the breakdown of an E. amylovora biofilm by dicty amoebae.

What if there were a better way to control plant infections?

AgraFilms has harnessed the natural predatory
power of amoebae to do just that.

How it works

Dicty amoebae

Becterial pathogen

Dicty spores rapidly germinate into amoebae

The amoebae replicate in the presence of their bacterial prey and start hunting

Finally, the amoebae digest the targeted pathogen, eliminating the threat.

Our technology revolutionizes biocontrol by harnessing this natural behavior. We identify specific amoebic strains to target individual pathogens.

What makes amoebae
so special?

Our use of Dicty amoebae is a significant step forward for agriculture for many reasons.
