We aim to spread the good news about medicinal leeches. Show how they can help and what benefits it will bring you. We breed and raise leeches for special purposes. Our leeches are grown in the Lodeksa medical leeches biofactory in Lithuania, where leeches are grown and propagated under the strictest laboratory conditions.
The reproduction process of medicinal leeches is complex and long. They, like all other leeches, are hermaphrodites, but only cross-fertilize. The development of medical leeches is not direct – the larvae hatched from the egg remain in the cocoon, where their metamorphosis takes place. Very mobile young emerge from the cocoon, already having the characteristic color of the species and are able to live independently.
The selling price of the leech is €3.00. The Lodeksa medical leeches biofactory is one of the largest medical leeches breeding and cultivation biofactories in Europe. Medical leeches produced by Lodeksa medical leeches are widely used by the most famous European university hospitals, as well as by hirudologists in England, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Slovakia, Spain, Germany, Poland, Finland, Czech Republic, PAR, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Greece . Our leeches are tested in the laboratory of the MVT Risk Assessment Institute, which allows us to ensure high hygiene standards.
