Company Overview

Newport Laboratories

Our Mission

Newport Laboratories provides the service of assisting our customers in their effort to address animal health problems through diagnostic testing and production of veterinary biologics.

With cutting edge molecular diagnostic technology, we assist in identifying disease pathogens. Our novel manufacturing technologies are used to produce quality PINPOINT (autogenous) Evidence-based Biologics, offering veterinarians and producers alternative methods to address the prevention of animal diseases.

The FACS Team at Newport Labs includes experienced professionals that provide assistance to veterinary practitioners and consultants as well as livestock producers. This is complemented by the personal attention featured by our trained customer service representatives.

Our History

In 1994, veterinarians Wayne Freese and Craig Pfeifer, owners of the Veterinary Medical Center of Worthington, Minnesota, began to expand their business offerings to include autogenous biologics and diagnostics. Their customer base continued to grow and expand into surrounding states, and in 1997 Newport Laboratories received its USDA facility license.

With dedicated, focused employees, quality products, and an emphasis on personalized customer service, Newport Laboratories continued to grow and expand, providing swine and bovine biological for customers across the country.

In 2004, the company moved its corporate and sales offices to their current location at the Prairie Holdings Center, a landmark red building located just off of Interstate 90 on the north edge of Worthington, MN. The campus-like setting includes 30 acres for potential expansion. Two years later, a new Research, Development, and Diagnostics Center opened, adjacent to the Prairie Holdings Center. This 7,000-square foot facility houses laboratories and offices for our Diagnostics, Molecular Diagnostics, and Research & Development divisions. At the same time, our Quality Control department moved into its own dedicated facility in Worthington. Newport's Production center is a state-of-the-art USDA-licensed facility. It recently underwent a major renovation and expansion, adding a multi-million dollar viral suite and increasing total production volume by more than 60 percent.
