Located in Cambridge, Ontario, Gallant Custom Laboratories Inc. is a manufacturer of autogenous biologics (specialty animal vaccines) for farm animals in Canada. Autogenous Biologics are considered an alternative when licensed commercial products are not available or do not cover the current strains found in the herd or flock. Our autogenous bacterins and vaccines, are prescribed only by practicing veterinarians and used exclusively on the originating farm. In addition to the manufacture of vaccines, we also provide advanced testing for characterizing and isolating the disease causing bacteria or virus in the samples from the herd or flock. With state-of-the-art technology, like real time PCR, we can detect some of the most difficult organisms causing serious animal health problems. An autogenous biologic, like all bacterins and vaccines, can contribute significantly to the reduction of antibiotic use on farms and in overall animal health in Canada. The company was founded on September 14th 1995 and is now going into its 19th year.
We employ microbiologists and laboratory technicians/assistants. At present, there are no openings for high school and post-secondary students.
In the future, Gallant Labs will continue to utilize advancements in technology for propagating antigens for biologics along with testing and isolating organisms from sample submissions. Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide the highest quality animal health solutions for Canadian veterinarians and farmers. It is our goal to make significant contributions to the advancement of the science of immunology and to be a reliable source of specialty vaccines for farm animals in Canada. Jackie Gallant president
