Ranikhet Disease Vaccine, Live Lentogenic 'LaSota' Strain I.P. SUPER LaSotaTM


Super LaSotaTM Vaccine is the latest contribution of Bio-Med to the bandbagon of currently existing Ranikhet disease vaccines. Its uniqueness lies in its characteristics of being highly immunogenic although being stress free. Hence it shall protect (broiler / layer) chicks (young chicks or birds in lay) against the potential attack of very-very virulent Ranikhet disease virus.
Super LaSotaTM has been developed in DSIR (Govt. of India) certified lab of Bio-Med by extensive research using CLONING & SELECTION procedure. Super LaSota's I.C.P Index is 0.0125 & C.E.P Index is 115.5 hours. It causes insignificant pathogenic changes in the lung & airsacs of young chicks. The chicks vaccinated with this vaccine, resisted challenge by infectious Ranikhet disease virus(90% Survival in comparision with about 10% conferred with regular Lasota/F/B-1 Strain vaccines in a trial). All these characteristics makes Super LaSotaTM a distinct clone of R.D. virus.
