The newspaper Le Progrès reported that the fire, which occurred early on December 12, destroyed two floors of the administration building. Biomatech's administration building is separate from the laboratory facility.

Biomatech is partially owned by NAMSA (North American Science Associates). In the U.S., NAMSA reported using over 17,000 guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, dogs, sheep and pigs in research and testing in 2009.
