About us


Centrovet Laboratory was founded in 1979. Since then, our company has been focused in R&D as a strategic driver of its business: bringing innovative solutions for animal health.

In 1999 Centrovet Laboratory moved to its current facility, which is located in Santiago, Chile. Today we have a site of 19.000 m2 total, where 12.000 m2 of them are manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and covered service areas.

Since 2002 the Laboratory has the ISO 9000 certification, granted by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). We were the first Chilean Pharmaceutical Veterinary laboratory obtaining this certification.

In 2008 DNV granted Centrovet the GMP certification and later the same year we obtained the Livestock and Agricultural Service (SAG) authorization for Good Manufacture Practices (13.126 LM 020). We are one of the few Pharma companies to have these 3 certifications simultaneously.

Nowadays, 268 people work at Centrovet, 62 of them, are professionals from different backgrounds, Pharmacists, Chemists, Biologists, Biochemists, Microbiologists, Veterinarians and Engineers. It’s important to point out that among these professionals 4 holds PhDs, and 7 Master in Science degrees.

Traceability  is one of the pillars of our Quality Management program.  All manufacturing and QC procedures are based on this concept, which is supported on three levels:

•    Traceability of raw material and finished products.
•    Traceability of processes, which allows to identify and control every step of the productive process: personnel, materials, equipment, QC, etc.
•    Traceability of shipment, allows us exactly which clients received a batch of product.

The spirit of our organization has based its values on the quality management, continuous improvement, and satisfaction of our clients.

Nowadays the company sells its products fish, swine, poultry and cattle industries, and for pet owners. We export to 36 countries.
Centrovet is the main Chilean Pharmaceutical Veterinary Laboratory, having 152 registratered pharmaceutical products:  vaccines, antibiotics, antiparasitics, additives and reconstituents.

During the past years, Centrovet’s Biological Team has developed and registered 16 vaccines against different pathologies of poultry, pigs and fishes, in immersion, injectable and oral forms. 14 of those products are for salmonids. Among our main achievements, we introduced the first vaccine in Chile against the virus of Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISAv). This vaccine was first vaccine registered in Chile, and it is based in state-of-the-art genetic engineering, using molecular biology and virology techniques.

Oral vaccines are also a key achievement in our immunity offer. Centrovet developed a strategy to give immunity to salmon during the whole farming process, by re-vaccinating fish using oral vaccines (oral boosters).  We were the first worldwide laboratory to develop a full protection program against SRS and ISAv.

These vaccines where developed using MicroMatrix® technology, and since their commercialization, between 2009 and 2010, have been evaluated by our clients as a major achievement as far as an efficient tool in disease control. Based on this experience we are in the process of develop the similar vaccines for other pathologies and animal species.

Centrovet‘s product line includes: disinfectants, anti-infectives, antiparasitics, vitamins, electrolytes, growth promoters, anesthetics, anti-inflammatories, analgesics, feed additives, enzymes, acidifiers, antioxidants, vaccines, etc.
