Vacci-Test Completes Purchase of Maxivet Ltd.

CALGARY, AB, Canada | Posted on December 24th, 2008

Maxivet, through its expertise in microbiology, specializes in the development of veterinary vaccines and pre-mortem diagnostic products. Maxivet has been a strategic partner of Vacci-Test for three years and has played a crucial role in the testing and validation of Vacci-Test's new revolutionary food safety test, FoodChekTM-E.COLI, the world's first under 6 hour test for the rapid and accurate detection of E.coli O158:H7. With Maxivet's assistance FoodChekTM-E.COLI has already successfully completed field trials in three meat processing plants in North America. The development of FoodChekTM-SALMONELLA is already underway and will be quickly followed by another equally innovative test for the rapid detection of Listeria.

Mr. Sandy MacPherson, Chairman of the Executive Operating Committee of Vacci-Test said "The acquisition of Maxivet is the foundation of a strong platform for our Research and Development program and demonstrates our commitment to food safety and the need for a simple, accurate and cost effective same-shift test for the meat, produce and dairy industry. Maxivet will provide unique microbiological expertise, access to a certified P2 microbiological facility for our ongoing validation program and testing for release and fulfillment."
