Why use Autogenous Bacterins?

  1. Commercially licensed products are not available for all disease causing organisms - such asActinobacillus suis.
  2. Licensed commercial products may not include all the disease causing serotypes present on your farm; for example, many pathogenic strains ofEscherichia coli, Streptococcus suis andHaemophilus parasuis are not available in commercial products.
  3. The unique combination of pathogens or serotypes present on the farm can be included in an autogenous bacterin.
  4. Field isolates are constantly changing and mutating. Autogenous isolates represent current infections and pathogens.
