Reliable animal vaccination

30 September 2021, at 8:30am

A common practice to preserve long-term animal health, pig injection avoids potential economic consequences in case of a disease outbreak. For this reason, it is worth taking time to evaluate syringe features and benefits, and choose the right instrument.

Model selection

Socorex Isba SA is a Swiss manufacturer of re-usable self-refilling syringes with spring-loaded plunger and three-way valve system. Simple conception, perfect balance and ergonomic design provide for ease of use, operator comfort and fatigue-free fieldwork.

Excellent syringe performance is achieved by careful conception and material selection. This guarantees accuracy and reproducibility of each dose and ensures optimal protection up to the last injected animal. Ground glass barrel and metal plunger are adapted for any vaccine or suspension. Metal valve balls and springs are most efficient for serial injections. Plunger tightness without O-ring eliminates maintenance while working. A superior quality syringe is paid back rapidly by the absence of costly issues encountered in the field.

Easy maintenance and spare parts availability make the difference

The Socorex self-refilling syringes are re-usable. Easy disassembling without tools provides for simplified maintenance / cleaning. Broken parts may be replaced rapidly. This guarantees a longer instrument lifespan (over 10 years) and reduces the amount of waste generated by cheap plastic syringes with single use or a short lifespan.

Accessories for more flexibility

Additional accessories provide for greater working flexibility. Socorex syringes are supplied with feed tube or vial holder and may be converted from one to the other feeding source in no time. They also fit a 20 cm and a 35 cm rigid extensions available separately.

The superior needle program deserves all attention mainly because of needle quality and durability. A safety needle packaging limits risks of hand / finger injury.

In conclusion

A closer look at syringe features and performances may bring significant saving over the long term. Opting for a reliable instrument is a wise choice, not only for ecological reasons, but mainly for financial benefits.
