  • Experimental vaccine development
  • The Autogenous Vaccine laboratory is dedicated to the development of prevention tools for bacterial diseases in aquaculture. The unit has a compartmentalised area which operates using HEPA filters and is fully equipped for the experimental production of inactivated bacterial vaccines. The equipment includes BSL-II laminar flow cabinet, cooling refrigerator, high shear mixer and a bioreactor Eppendorf BIOFLO 320.  Our vaccine development process has been ISO9001 certified since 2019.

    The Autogenous Vaccine laboratory also conducts R&D for phage therapy products. Bacteriophages or phages are highly host-specific viruses of bacteria that can be used as a biocontrol method for pathogenic bacteria.  The activities of this laboratory are now commercialised through the newly established spin-off company Aquatic Biologicals.
