The Bacteriological Laboratory of the Stavropol Province Council was established on June 18, 1914. In 1918, the laboratory was developed into the Province Sanitary and Bacteriological Institute.
In the middle of 30s, the production unit was opened in the Institute. It produced special kinds of bacterial preparation for the needs of practical healthcare: trivalent vaccines, divalent vaccines, dysentery, streptococcal, scarlet, staphylococcal, gonococcal vaccines, diphtheria, scarlet fever, streptococcus, tetanus, botulinum, gangrene serums, diphtheria toxoids.
Due to this restructuration the company produced 56 liters of finished serums in 1930, 149 liters in 1932, 1946 liters in 1935 and 3216 liters in 1936.
In 1940, the Province Sanitary and Bacteriological Institute was renamed the Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology of the RSFSR Ministry of Health.
At the beginning of the Great Patriotic War the institute increased not only the production volume, but the range of products as well.
In 1952, the Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology of the RSFSR Ministry of Health was transformed into the Scientific and Research Institute of Vaccines and Serums.
In the middle of 60s, the range of products was extended by the following immunobiological preparations: influenza and leptospirosis vaccines, influenza and leptospirosis serums. The company began to produce pollen allergens.
In 1988, the Scientific and Research Institute was transformed into Scientific and Production Association Allergen of the USSR Ministry of Medical Industry.
In 1992, it was renamed FSUE Allergen of the Russian Ministry of Health.
The range of products has been significantly extended due to the increase of the range of ampoule dosage forms (ATP, Papaverine, Dibazol, Cocarboxylase, aloe extract, sodium chloride solutions, potassium chloride solutions, glucose solutions, Riboxin, Lidocaine, etc.).
The branch produces the following preparations: antitoxic serums (tetanus, diphtheria, botulism, viper venom); vaccines (BCG tuberculosis and BCG-M); drugs for the treatment of dysbacteriosis (Bifidumbacterin); preparations for the diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases; ampoule dosage forms (0.1% nitroglycerin solution, etc.). The branch is the only Russian company producing pollen allergens (more than 30 drugs for the treatment and diagnosis of allergy).
In 2007, the branch developed and conducted successful trial of the production of growth media for the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
The branch is located far from residential areas and at a sufficient distance from production sites that may affect the quality of products.
The branch has its own autonomous industrial infrastructure located in the land plot of 18 ha with 45 thousand square meters of production sites with modern technological equipment.
