Are Autogenous Bacterins safe to use?
Yes. Production of autogenous products in Canada is regulated by the CFIA, Veterinary Biologics Division. Gallant Custom Laboratories has been inspected and approved by the CFIA and uses approved outlines and testing procedures during bacterin production. We produce only killed autogenous bacterins, which contain no live bacteria. Our products are tested for purity and sterility throughout the manufacturing process to ensure you receive a quality product with no biosecurity issues. The final product is further tested in either a laboratory mouse model or in the target animal at the farm site. As required by the CFIA, we obtain Certificates of Origin for all of the components of animal origin used to produce our bacterins certifying that they are derived from BSE free countries. Autogenous bacterins are not tested for efficacy.
