Boehringer launches new purification technology for Ingelvac CircoFLEX®
Drug firm Boehringer Ingelheim has announced new purification technology for Ingelvac CircoFLEX®.
Vaccine to be launched in all EU countries in January 2020

Pharmaceutical firm Boehringer Ingelheim has announced a new and proprietary purification process for its swine vaccine, Ingelvac CircoFLEX®.

Ingelvac CircoFLEX® was the first PCV2 (porcine circovirus type 2) that could be mixed with an M hyo vaccine to address two critical swine pathogens in a single dose. Considered to be the most revolutionary PCV2 vaccines on the market, it provides effective control of circovirus-associated disease in pigs aged three weeks and older.

The new diafiltration process, named DiaTEC, removes residual cell media components from the virus-like particles (VLPs) to obtain highly immunogenic and non-virucidal vaccine.

A press release reads: “With DiaTEC, a new and proprietary diafiltration technology, Ingelvac CircoFLEX® becomes the first and only non-virucidal PCV2 vaccine for improved capabilities to be freshly mixed on farm.”

Eva Joras, global brand manager at Boehringer Ingelheim, said: “I am really proud that we continuously invest in our research and development to further improve our leading products to address our customers’ needs.”

Ingelvac CircoFLEX®, manufactured with the new technology, will be launched in several different packaging sizes in all EU countries in January 2020.

Restriction zone lifted at Suffolk chicken farm

A one-kilometre restriction zone around a commercial chicken farm in mid-Suffolk has been lifted, following the completion of surveillance testing for avian influenza H5N3 with negative results.

Some 27,000 birds on the premises were culled after a veterinary surgeon identified the disease while investigating a fall in egg production. Poultry keepers are urged to take action to reduce the risk of disease in their flock by following government advice on biosecurity.
