Medgene Labs was founded in 2011 and is based in Brookings, South Dakota. We're affiliated with South Dakota Innovation Partners, a venture capital firm with offices in Brookings and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Through its proprietary service, ISPrime™, our visionary team provides a faster, less costly and more efficient method for diagnosing and treating animals with infectious diseases.
As proof of Medgene's dedication and capabilities, in addition to its proprietary approach to developing bacterialogical and viral solutions for animal health, we've also patented a revolutionary air sampling system, the MobileAir Xtractor 400 (MAX400) and used by producers and researchers to monitor airborne pathogens potentially threatening their operations.
We also have several patented and proprietary systems and are using them to concentrate on developing a Rift Valley Fever vaccine, a Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Vaccine and several other animal vaccine products.
Though we're proud of our technical accomplishments, we're ever-mindful that our work is never truly done. Animal Health, as an industry is constantly evolving. Our aim is to approach each new day with the same passion that drove yesterday's success!
Our Mission: Making an Impact
In a nutshell, our mission is to prevent animal disease.
Through technology, biomedical research and vaccine development, our work is focused around that mission. The global challenge to protect the world's food supply is critical not only to the health of people and animals but also to the world's economy. By working with the US Department of Agriculture, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institute of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and others aligned with our mission, Medgene Labs is working hard toward a "mission complete."
Though our team includes the industry's best technicians and analysts, the most commonly met 'faces' are:
Other management and advisors include Hans Draayer; Todd Lahti; Juergen Richt, DVM; and Connie Schmidt, DVM.
Medgene Labs appreciates partnerships with respected organizations within the animal health industry, including:
