Botulinum Toxin – Production of a Deadly Poison – From Warriors to Wrinkles
Over 60 years ago, under high confidentiality, a small plant was built to produce a crude botulinum toxin. The presentation discusses some of the unusual features and typical operation of this facility. The toxin is considered by many to be the most poisonous material known. BOTOX is an extremely dilute form of this toxin.
