Company History

The founders of TECHLAB met in the late 1970s at Virginia Tech’s Anaerobe Laboratory, where they were investigating diagnosis and treatments for Clostridium difficile infection. Led by Dr. Tracy Wilkins, the researchers developed a high-titered antiserum for use as a diagnostic reagent.

Demand for the antiserum grew quickly when it was discovered that C. difficile is a major hospital pathogen, and TECHLAB was incorporated in 1989 to produce and distribute the product.

TECHLAB® manufacturing is located in Radford, Va.
