TECHLAB®, Inc. Company Profile

19:29 EDT 22nd September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The founders of TECHLAB® began their work on Clostridium difficile and its toxins back in the late 1970's and early 1980's. This work was done at the Anaerobe Laboratory at Virginia Tech. The VPI Anaerobe Laboratory was unique in itself. It was one of only three institutions in the world dedicated to the study of anaerobic organisms. Research on C. difficile, headed by Dr. Tracy Wilkins, soon branched out to include not only work on toxins A and B of C. difficile, but also better ways to diagnose and treat C. difficile infections. Included during this time was the development of high titered antiserum for use as a diagnostic reagent. Interest in this reagent grew quickly as the healthcare profession began to realize the importance of C. difficile as a hospital pathogen. Eventually Virginia Tech asked that the sales of antiserum be taken outside to a private company, because the University is a nonprofit organization. This was done in 1989, and TECHLAB® became incorporated.TECHLAB® has been involved in research on amebiasis for more than 7 years.
