Adjuvants and Injectables

adjuvants and injectables 1Adjuvants play an important role in the efficacy of vaccines as the antigens become more and more purified. Adjuvants must enhance the specific immune response against pathogens and improve protection. They must be stable and safe as secondary effects can have an impact on the growth of the animal, reproduction rate, the comfort of the animal or cause blemishes on the body. Those based on mineral oils are known to be very efficient adjuvants. You need low-viscosity oils of medicinal purity so that they do not affect the delicate emulsion stability. We take these needs into account to help us produce our Drakeol® 5 LT Mineral Oil NF and our Drakeol® 6 VR LT Mineral Oil NF.
