TV concentrates the large production and final processing centers of vaccines, biopharmaceuticals and diagnostic kits, as well as areas of support to this production chain, such as quality control and assurance. Within the complex are the Bacterial and Viral Antigen Production Centers (CPAB and CPAV); the Final Processing Center (CPFI); the building dedicated to the rotavirus vaccine; the Physical-Chemical Laboratory, in addition to the Henrique Penna Center, where the API of the COVID-19 vaccine (recombinant) is produced.
The Mudéjar-inspired building was conceived by the sanitarian doctor Oswaldo Cruz to become the palace of science and public health in Brazil. The design and construction were in charge of the Portuguese architect and engineer Luiz de Moraes Júnior, but everything started from a sketch of Oswaldo Cruz himself, who had known some European Moorish constructions during the period in which he studied at the Pasteur Institute, in Paris. In addition to the admiration for the architectural style, he would have been moved by at least two more reasons: to understand and disseminate the Spanish-Muslim influence in Brazil and to emphasize the importance of Arab medicine.
