13/01/2015: Biomin announces new aquaculture research center in Vietnam

Opening early 2015, the new Biomin aquaculture research center will drive research and development of innovative and effective solutions to pressing challenges in the industry. The facility, which will be located at Nong Lam University in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, further solidifies the dedication of Biomin to the aquaculture industry.

In line with its expansion plans in the aquaculture industry, Biomin will unveil its new 900m2 aquaculture research center at Nong Lam University in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam in early 2015.


The new facility signifies the continued collaborative efforts of Biomin in conducting innovative research to provide effective solutions to the industry with the focus on several key areas: nutrition and feed formulation; gut health; immune modulation; waste management and feed safety. 

Research and development will be centered on several of the most important species for the aquaculture industry in the region including marine and fresh water species such as catfish, tilapia, sea bass and shrimp.

As part of the investment, Biomin will take over and expand the facilities of the aqua research center at Nong Lam University. Activities at the new research center will be jointly coordinated by the
Biomin Research Center in Tulln, Austria and the technical staff at the facility. 

The research facilities will be equipped with five different recirculating systems and two challenge rooms. A feed formulation lab for preparation of test diets, including a lab scale feed extruder that will allow testing of different ingredients and solutions under conditions similar to those found in the aquaculture industry, is also in place.

In partnership with Sanphar, a veterinary products and services company that is also under the Erber Group umbrella, a state-of-the-art microbiological lab will be established to screen and investigate the status of infectious diseases in both livestock and aquaculture.

Biomin will also collaborate closely with Nong Lam University to build the academic and research pipeline in Vietnam by creating undergraduate research opportunities and mentorship for local students.
