Production - Quality - Ethics

Our company offers a wide selection of venoms produced in our laboratories or in collaboration with other institutions where production techniques, respect for the animal and product quality are consistent with our standards.

 

Venoms produced in our laboratories are frozen at very low temperatures, freeze-dried and stored at -18 ° C. Our production process ensures a product of excellent quality.

The determination of species is guaranteed, as well as the origin of animals when it is known. Traceability is one of our major commitments. It is possible in most cases to trace the route of the venom from its extraction to its distribution. Animals are numbered and identified individually (reptiles), by groups (arachnids) or by colonies (hymenopters).

Products offered and distributed in collaboration with other laboratories offer similar guarantees.

The animals that we use are either born in our lab, bought from trusted companies or provided by reliable keepers. This enables us to guarantee the origin of most of our animals. When this cannot be the case for various reasons, we warn the consumer. Information regarding the origin of animals may be obtained upon request. 

Every day, specially during harvesting, transport and venom milking, particular attention is given to respect for the animal. The samples are collected on animals in perfect health, showing no sign of disease or weakness and feeding spontaneously.

In some species, electrical stimulation is used for venom extraction. These pulses are of low intensity, they are not harmful to animals and do not affect the quality of venom.

The animals are mostly kept in individual boxes. A particularly strict hygiene is observed. The animals are qualitatively and quantitatively fed according to their needs. Much attention is paid to the health status of each specimen.

Veterinary checks are conducted regularly by an independent agency. We also conduct regular quality checks on the venom that we produce. Our facilities are subject to the same controls. Thus, thanks to our discipline, we can ensure both a perfect state of health of our animals and a perfect hygiene of our infrastructures resulting in high quality products.
