 Project objective

Disruptive technology for improved quality and viral yield in egg-based vaccine production and other biotechnology applications. Ovagen Group Ltd. (OGL) is an innovation-based biotechnology company, led by serial entrepreneurs, providing specialist contract services to Biopharma, Pharmaceutical and Vaccine industries. OGL specialises in avian Germ-Free (GF) technology and avian transgenics to Good Manufacturing Practice standards. The company’s vision is to be the go-to supplier of superior quality GF eggs to the vaccine industry globally by 2021.

INNOVATION: The founders Dr Leonard Moran CEO and Dr Catherine Caulfield COO together with external VC investors and Enterprise Ireland have invested €12.91M in seven years of R&D, utilising the considerable skills, expertise and experience of our team within this field to develop a unique and novel, patent protected process to enable commercially viable production of the World’s first germ-free (GF) eggs, to eliminate bacterial contamination through eggs for vaccine development and production. This will result in improved quality, production costs and viral yields for vaccine manufacturers leading to cost and availability benefits for health service providers for immunisation programmes to protect the health and lives of populations whilst enabling a rapid response to Global pandemic demands. There is exceptionally strong market pull for our innovative disruptive technology, and the increasing use of vaccines to support global demand for quality eggs estimated CAGR of 8.8% and market value of USD 1.89Bn by 2022.

OPPORTUNITY: Over 1bn fertilised specific pathogen free (SPF) chicken eggs are used annually in vaccine manufacture, servicing a vaccine market size estimated to be worth €48bn by 2021 with an AGR of 8.3%.
