On the 4th December PHARMAQ announced the opening of a new facility in Kløfta (Norway) for the production of viral antigens for use in fish vaccines

With the establishment of this state of the art facility, PHARMAQ has now the capacity to produce virus antigen for several hundred million vaccine doses annually and will ensure PHARMAQ’s delivery capacity to the international aquaculture industry for the future.

The plant received authorisation from the Norwegian Medicines Agency on November 1, 2017 and is counting up to twenty five employees.

“Today, we are extremely proud to open this new facility for virus antigen production in Norway” said Morten Nordstad, President PHARMAQ.

“Not only this facility will help secure fish vaccines production for the many years to come, but it also represents a real technological step forward in vaccine production for fish.
