is located in rural southern Ontario within the Golden Triangle and produces/purifies polyclonal chicken antibodies (IgY).

was one of the first North American companies to specialize in chicken antibodies. This company strives to deliver high quality chicken antibodies in milligram quantities for research use. The company also adopts a pleasant and natural as possible environment for the chickens such as nesting boxes, roosting sticks, dry baths (woodchips or sand) and outside runs. The animal facilities are inspected and accredited under the Ontario Animals for Research Act licence #0028, which is overseen by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

Chicken antibodies have various advantages over mammal antibodies due to the phylogenetical differences between avian and mammalian species, resulting in increased sensitivity as well as decreased background signals. It is also the most humane way to produce polyclonal antibodies as the chicken antibody (IgY) is retrieved from the egg yolk, making it unnecessary to bleed the animal. Additionally, chicken antibodies do not activate the human complement system nor will they react with rheumatoid factors, human anti-mouse IgG antibodies, or bacterial and human Fc receptors.
