AgriLabs® is a fully integrated family of animal health companies supporting concept-to-commercialization of innovative products and services to customers in the U.S. and around the globe. We also offer technical veterinary support, leading-edge marketing, and sales expertise in the food animal industry in the United States. AgriLabs’ distribution network represents more than 90% of all the food animal products sold in the U.S.
AgriLabs also provides specialized expertise throughout the product commercialization process via our subsidiaries: Benchmark Biolabs (contract research), Antelope Valley Bios (contract manufacturing), and VaxLiant® (novel adjuvants). Each subsidiary operates independently, providing ironclad confidentiality to customers seeking research or manufacturing services.
Headquartered in St. Joseph, Missouri, AgriLabs was founded in 1984 as a buying group, providing marketing and sales distribution services for more than 30 years. Today, we use innovative technology transfer and cooperative development agreements to speed development of state-of-the-art health products for swine, cattle, poultry and the companion animal industries. Highlights include the launch of the VaxLiant line of adjuvants with ENABL®, a novel antigen-delivery system that speeds the development and commercialization of safe, effective vaccines. One of those adjuvants was used in the first Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) vaccine approved in the U.S. We also were the first to market an Abbreviated New Animal Drug Application (ANADA) approved by the Center for Veterinary Medicine, and now have 12 ANADAs for food animals.
More recently, AgriLabs launched VetGun™, a one-of-a-kind horn fly control delivery system for use in cattle. These successes, along with many others, are what make AgriLabs the “market maker” in innovative animal health products.
