MONTANIDE™ ISA - W/O
Ready-to-use adjuvants for Water-in-Oil emulsion vaccines
Water-in-Oil (W/O) formulations are continuous oil phase emulsions.
Adjuvant selection will consider the type of oil and the ratio of use (from 50% to 70%) depending on expected vaccine characteristics.
MONTANIDE™ ISA for W/O emulsions - Application
These very efficient adjuvants are used to achieve a long-term protective immune response.
Field trials have shown that such adjuvants can stimulate both humoral and cell mediated immune responses.
SEPPIC W/O adjuvants are compatible with inactivated and recombinant antigens.

Vaccine preparation with MONTANIDE™ ISA for W/O emulsions
Stable W/O vaccine emulsions have to be prepared using a high shear rate.
Compared to Incomplete Freund Adjuvant (IFA), MONTANIDE™ ISA for W/O emulsions render stable emulsions with low viscosity.
