In 2021, INDICAL became part of Vimian Group – a publicly listed company on Nasdaq Stockholm. Vimian is a global and fast-growing group of innovation-driven companies that share a passion for making a positive impact through improving animal health.

The group covers four essential areas within animal health:

Specialty Pharma: Nextmune
Veterinary Services: VetFamily
MedTech: Movora


Effective April 2021, Swedish veterinary diagnostics pioneer Svanova joined the INDICAL family and became INDICAL Sweden AB. The SVANOVIR ELISA product range is now available exclusively from INDICAL.


Experienced German producer AFOSA is now part of INDICAL, helping expand our portfolio to improve the welfare of even more animals. INDICAL’s offering now includes ELISA kits for the reliable detection of antibodies to parasitic and vector-transmitted companion animal pathogens.
