New needle-free vaccinator delivered to UK pig industry
The IDAL® 3G needle-free, intradermal vaccination system makes its debut at the British Pig and Poultry Fair.
Developed by MSD Animal Health and leading medical and veterinary technology specialist Henke-Sass Wolf, this third-generation IDAL device brings the very latest in needle-free vaccination technology to the pig sector at a time when producers are seeking innovative disease prevention strategies that will help them reduce antimicrobial use on-farm.
Launched in mid-April, visitors to BPPF will be able to learn more about IDAL 3G’s radical new design and try out the for themselves on MSD’s stand, No.82 in Hall 2.
The new ergonomic shape embraces customer feedback and the device is lighter, more balanced and easier to handle. It also has a two-component surface for maximum grip, a soft trigger action and simple two-button control with graphical display. It also has an interchangeable belt hook for simple, secure stowage when not in use.
Another key advantage of this third-generation device is its long-lasting Li-Ion battery and extended service interval that’s almost twice as long the previous 2G model. Routine service checks, every 20,000 injections, are performed on farm, while factory servicing will be every 100,000 injections and carried out at an HSW-certified service centre.
The UK’s IDAL development manager and the Technical Global Director from MSD Animal Health will be on the stand throughout the Fair to introduce the new device, share expertise and talk about future developments. MSD veterinary advisors and product managers will available to discuss ‘The IDAL Way’ and the company’s range of intradermal vaccines, its comprehensive range of other pig vaccines and the many porcine veterinary products and diagnostic/management services it can provide to vets and producers.
Within ‘The IDAL Way’ concept, MSD currently offers a range of five intradermal (ID) pig vaccine, three of which – Porcilis® PRRS, Porcilis® PCV ID and Porcilis® M Hyo ID ONCE – are commonly used in the UK to protect herds from some of the most significant disease challenges facing commercial pig production.
