BS-Immun produces autogenous vaccines for livestock (herd-specific vaccines) as well as for individual animals. Manufacturers require a manufacturing authorisation by the responsible authority (Bundesamt für Sicherheit im Gesundheitswesen). The focus is on vaccines against bacterial infections of the gut, the respiratory tract, mastitis and skin infections as well as papilloma and trichophytia vaccines.
Autogenous vaccines are inactivated, tailor-made vaccines. They must be applied only in livestock or individual animals from which the etiological agents have been isolated.
We cooperate with laboratories by obtaining isolates which are the starting material for the production of the vaccines. Bacteria and toxins are inactivated and adequate adjuvants are added. Each batch is tested for sterility.
