Why use Autogenous Bacterins?
- Commercially licensed products are not available for all disease causing organisms - such asActinobacillus suis.
- 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.
- The unique combination of pathogens or serotypes present on the farm can be included in an autogenous bacterin.
- Field isolates are constantly changing and mutating. Autogenous isolates represent current infections and pathogens.
