Seppic widens its range dedicated to Animal Health with a new adjuvant for oral vaccination: MONTANIDE ™ GR 01

For more than 40 years, Seppic has offered well-known vaccine adjuvants for Animal Health: the MONTANIDE ™ range. These adjuvants are mainly dedicated to the injection and mucosal route. Today Seppic adds to its offer an adjuvant specially designed for oral vaccination, a safe and effective alternative for many species, especially for fish.

MONTANIDE™ GR 01 contains a matrix which traps the antigen. Thus, the antigen is protected from the gastric environment until its liberation in the intestine where it can interact with immune cells. MONTANIDE™ GR 01 can be easily used to formulate veterinary oral vaccines by emulsification with aqueous antigens. The vaccine emulsion can be mixed with feed to form a coating before administered to target animals.

Oral vaccination enables an easy mass vaccination, free from injection potential drawbacks (local reactions, animal stress, risks for the operator). It is particularly adapted to aquaculture as it allows safe vaccination of very small fish.

Once more, Seppic is proud to contribute to Animal well-being thanks to this new effective and safe adjuvant.
