Sterimatic Universal Adaptor

Sterimatic Universal Adaptor

The Sterimatic system is used with a wide variety of different vacccination guns,offering added protection for the user and increased needle hygiene. As it is designed to be compatible with the largest possible number of different vaccinators, the Sterimatic usually requires the user to remove the Needle Nut from their gun. Once this needle nut is removed, the needle is just pushed onto the needle nib and the Sterimatic sleeve is fitted over the top of the needle. The disadvantage of this setup is that there is nothing really holding the needle in place beyond the force used to push it onto the nib, which can result in the needle coming loose during regular use.

Pigeon Paramyxovirus (PPMV) in Australia

Pigeon Paramyxovirus ( PPMV)

In Australia pigeon owners are vaccinating there flocks against the Avian Paramyxovirus, some having little experience at vaccinating birds.

Even those who had experience at vaccinating had to deal with minimum pack size being 500ml ( 1000 pigeon doses). In an effort to help make this process easy for them, and to help lower the cost of the vaccine through “pack-sharing” we soon devleoped our Pigeon Vaccination Kit.

This kit contains everything needed by each breeder to allow them to decant the amount of vaccine they need for their own flock form a (500ml) pack of the required vaccine. So if a group of breeders each purchase their own kit, they are able tos hare out the vaccine without contaminating the main pack.

Think Livestock are stocking a small supply of the killed vaccine, Poulvac.
