A new company has set up its premises at Álava Technology Park: Biokilab, a biotechnology sector firm whose official opening event was attended by the project promoter Enrique Oquiñena, the Minister of Industry, Innovation, Trade and Tourism Bernabé Unda, the Head of the Álava Provincial Government Javier de Andrés and the Deputy Mayor of Vitoria-Gasteiz, Fernando Aranguiz.
Biokilab has its origins in an initiative set up in 2008 with backing from the Basque Government, Álava Regional Government and the Ministry of Science and Innovation. In the words of its promoter, “this is a project based on R+D+I processes whose main aim is to prevent diseases through genetic analysis.”
The company has its own 2000m2 plot on which it has constructed a biotechnology building for developing its R+D department. The building consists of two large concrete cubes connected by two glass cubes, a single-floor construction that will house its central laboratory, among other facilities.
Biokilab forms part of the Laboratorios Oquiñena business group. Other members are Biokintegra, Biokintegra Internacional, UnReto and Biokikutxa.
