About us

Prophyl Ltd.

The company was founded in 1991 by Dr. János Benyeda and his wife. Their mission, namely to serve animal and human health, is what has driven the company's development ever since.

Today it has grown into a company that engages in a variety of modern and unique activities related to human and animal health, expanding from our local base in Baranya County to cover the whole of Hungary, while in certain respects we also operate at the European level. It has become one of the leading employers in the region.

Its activities now comprise mainly the production of SPF eggs and RDI services in the field of veterinary medicine. All areas are closely linked to animal health and human and veterinary vaccine production.

Marek Laboratory

Prophyl’s state-of-the-art vaccine-production and diagnostic laboratory unit and containing several specialist laboratories, was handed over in December 2018. The laboratory is located in the renovated building of the former Dr. József Marek Agricultural Secondary School, and in honour of the school’s namesake, the most famous Hungarian veterinary scientist in the world, it was named the Dr. József Marek Veterinary Laboratory (or Marek Lab, for short).

The main activity of the unit is the veterinary diagnostics of livestock. By tailoring our services to the needs of our customers, we offer a comprehensive and constantly expanding range of diagnostic services for poultry, pigs and cattle. The solid background for our diagnostic services is provided by our company's experience in disease prevention, our colleagues and experts, who have decades of diagnostic experience, and our state-of-the-art, specialist laboratories.

Our modern laboratory center combines all diagnostic services: pathology, microbiology, serology, virology and molecular biology.

Studies, vaccine production

The establishment of the vaccine producing unit and its laboratory unit was realized with the help of the support won in the Széchenyi 2020 tender. As part of the tender, we also produced a self-developed vaccine to protect against one of the most serious viral diseases in young geese.

Whether you keep livestock or pet animals, we can offer you a wide range of services, from basic diagnostic tests to serological and the latest molecular biological methods.
