Biovet has just acquired an automated bacterial identification device using the MALDI TOF MS technology. This device allows even faster and more accurate diagnosis of bacterial infections.
The agri-food laboratory has obtained new accreditations from the SCC and is expanding its range of services, particularly with the acquisition of the 3M™ Molecular Detection System.
The Research and Development team continues to improve or develop several new PCR, MFIA and ELISA tests and diagnostic kits. It can also count on the next generation with its two new Immunoassay and PCR Directors.
The Sales team is keeping pace, with a new Sales Manager and a new Sales Representative – Companion Animals and Bovine.
In October 2019, Antech Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Mars Petcare, acquired Biovet. Joining with Antech is a natural merger of two like-minded organizations with a shared commitment to delivering innovation and quality services to veterinarians, allowing them to deliver excellent, compassionate care to companion animals.
Biovet's system is now integrated into VetWare management software for veterinary clinics.
As an essential service, Biovet remains open during the pandemic and continues to offer comprehensive laboratory services.
