Alkor Bio group of companies built a new modern vivarium
In mid-August, the opening of a new modern vivarium took place in the Alkor Bio Group of Companies. Vivarium is located in a separate two-story building with a total area of 1018 square meters next to the main building of Alkor Bio Group of Companies. Alkor Bio Group of Companies, a developer and manufacturer of test systems for laboratory diagnostics, invested more than 67.5 million rubles in the reconstruction and equipping of the vivarium. In the near future, an indoor gallery connecting both buildings will be completed, which will minimize efforts to maintain sanitary and epidemiological safety of the vivarium . In connection with the opening of a new vivarium in Alkor Bio Group of Companies, 3 additional jobs were created - the head of the vivarium, livestock specialist and technologist.
Vivarium is needed by Alkor Bio Group of Companies to meet the needs of a hybrid laboratory for the production of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, which, in turn, are important components of test systems. Recall that in March Alkor Bio Group of Companies announced a new service: the production of monoclonal antibodies to order from third-party organizations. In addition, the vivarium capabilities are used by the Trans-Technology stem cell bank research laboratory (part of Alkor Biot Group of Companies) for development in the field of cell technology.
