ESPHM 2018 in Barcelona opened for Hipra with the public launch of their complete SMART VACCINATION concept that offers a connected world of services for total control of the vaccination process.

The development of HipraQnect the world's first Internet of Things (IoT) intramuscular vaccine administration device means that complete SMART VACCINATION is available across the full range of Hipra vaccines.


SMART VACCINATION is Hipra's revolutionary concept offering vets and producers total control over the vaccination process. It involves three of Hipra's products working as a package:

  1. Smart Vaccines
  2. Smart Devices
  3. Hipralink® data reporting and analysis

Smart Vaccines

At ESPHM 2018 it was announced that every one of Hipra's vaccines now contact a radiofrequency identification (RFID) tag giving each vaccine a unique ID.

Smart Devices

HipraQnect® - world's first IoT intramuscular administration device

Hipradermic® - Hyperdermic needle-free device

Both devices transmit real time data on the quality, location and time of the vaccination by reading the vaccines unique RFID. The inbuilt SIM card ensures that there is complete flexibility of location without the need for internet signal, so no down time.

The devices offer much greater control and confidence in the vaccination process. They will not allow vaccines that are out of date to be administered nor doses that are greater than the recommended 2ml.


Hipralink® is data reporting and analysis tool that takes the information created from the vaccination sessions and turns it into practical data to control and manage the efficacy of the vaccination process. One can monitor at a site or multi-site level, the number of doses delivered, number of pigs vaccinated, time taken, whether the full dose was administered and even staff member responsible.

From the production perspective, Hipralink® works on two levels:

1. At farm level:

The farm manager can manage vaccinations from either the website, tablet or smartphone. This means that the vaccination process can be planned and managed from anywhere at any time.

2. At final producer level:

At this level, it is the final customer who will reap the benefit of traceability by generating users at final customer level, and giving the permission to the farm to share all the information relating to the vaccination process with them.

Ultimately the Smart Vaccination package gives greater assurance and confidence that all animals are receiving the correct vaccine and the ability to compare performance from across sites.
