Algenex has more than 20 years’ experience in the veterinary sector and is focused on developing and producing veterinary vaccines using its TopBac® and CrisBio® technology platforms.

We have successfully produced more than 200 molecules in collaboration with public and private partners, including multiple international pharmaceutical companies and achieved proof-of- concept in more than 20 indications across most livestock species.

FatrovaxRHD, first vaccine produced in CrisBio® received marketing authorization in the European Union and United Kingdom in Q3.

Benefits of using CrisBio® in the production of proteins for veterinary vaccines:

  • Linear scalability

  • Reduced production costs

  • Increased productivity, reaching gram per litre yields

Herdscreen® ASFV, developed jointly between Algenex and GlobalDX, is a point-of-care rapid diagnostic test that identifies animals which have been exposed to the African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) using whole blood, plasma or serum samples. Herdscreen® uses a highly specific antigen produced using CrisBio®.

This antigen is able to capture antibodies developed during infection with ASFV with 100% specificity and higher sensitivity than a commercial ELISA test, as evidenced in field and experimental samples from infected animals gathered by the European Union Reference Laboratory for African Swine Fever (CISA-INIA).

Herdscreen® ASFV been on the market since 2021. The test is being increasingly adopted by food and meat industry to contribute to certifying the ASFV-infection status through the entire supply chain and as a consequence help reducing disease spread.
