Public Profile

Epivara - formerly known as Insigna Inc and spun out of University of Illinois - develops a new method to spay/neuter animals using a single injection. This solution decreases surgery risks, lowers the cost, and is easier to administer for organizations and shelters. The solution also has benefits for the animals through minimizing discomfort, 100% success, the ability to spay/neuter homeless animals without transporting them, and no recovery time needed. The spot, EpiFix, costs less than surgery and is a tiny pellet the size of a grain of rice.
