Oxitec do Brasil opens mosquito production unit

The facility will be employed for the production, dispatch and analysis of mosquitoes. It is located in TechnoPark, Campinas, measures some 240 m and has an initial production capacity of 2 million mosquitoes a week. Head of business development Glen Slade anticipates the use of larger facilities soon. "This production unit is sufficient to initiate projects, but we intend to invest in the construction of larger units in the coming months," he says.
