Diagnostic Products - Svanova

On the 22nd of June 2011 Svanova became Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health organisation.

This organisational change represents an exciting new chapter in the 30 year old history of Svanova and the company's diagnostic combat against infectious diseases in production animals.

Svanova arose out of activities in the Swedish Veterinary Institute (SVA) where veterinary diagnostic solutions for eradication programs and disease monitoring were pioneered. These diagnostic test kits detect antibodies against virus, bacteria, parasites and mycoplasmas in various animal species, with the main focus on Bovine and Porcine.

In the beginning the kits were predominantly used in Sweden, but the demand for quality diagnostic solutions grew beyond the borders of Sweden and Scandinavia and gradually expanded globally.

The business developed rapidly and in 2001 it was decided to move the activities into a separate business outside of the Veterinary Institute. The company Svanova Biotech AB was formed. 


Svanova Biotech AB retained the tradition of developing new diagnostic solutions based on thorough knowledge in the field of infectious diseases in production animals. Being a large global network in the veterinary research community, Svanova Biotech AB is characterised by its customer focused approach as well as its refusal to compromise on the quality of their products and services to the market.

Since 2003, the SVANOVIR® products from Svanova have  been developed, manufactured and supplied to the market according to the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system.

Today the portfolio comprises over 30 different ELISA's and two penside tests and is supplied to over 70 countries worldwide.
