About Animab

Ensuring the intestinal health of piglets

Animab offers a safe and sustainable way to protect piglets' intestinal health during the vital post-weaning stage. Our proprietary antibodies mimic secretory IgA, a type of natural antibody passed through colostrum and milk to protect nursing animals.

In a collaborative effort with VIB and the Ghent University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Animab further improved these antibodies to target with speed and precision specific intestinal pathogens in livestock without altering the healthy microbiome.

Animab will continue to collaborate with these top academic research groups to expand the high precision biological resources available to protect young animals.
