Who we are

The company was founded as a result of the interaction between the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the ULe and Spherium Biomed www.spheriumbiomed.com (technology licensee of the UAB).It owes its existence to to the strong financial support of the Fondo Tecnológico Seguranza promoted by the Regional Government of Castile and León and managed by Clave Mayor.

Today, Aquilón relies on a multidisciplinary team of permanent staff, supported by specialists in animal health and production, regulatory affairs, marketing, business administration, sales, manufacturing and finance.

What we do

Each project has its own external subcontracted teams that cover the areas of expertise necessary for the execution of the project.

In addition, the company markets autogenous vaccines against swine dysentery and provides, develops and manages a portfolio of diagnostic services for porcine enteropathies.
