A plastic vaccine bottle is a special container made of polyethylene or polypropylene and other polymer materials. Unlike glass packaging, this type of container is mainly used for the storage of inactivated vaccines. Avian influenza vaccine is one of them.
Avian influenza virus is a common infectious disease in poultry farming, and it is also an important factor hindering the economic benefits of farms. Sick poultry can cause elevated body temperature, purple crown and wattles, swelling, bleeding, and even necrosis. At the same time, it is accompanied by symptoms such as breathing difficulties and coughing. Highly pathogenic avian influenza can cause poultry death when there are no obvious symptoms. The fatality rate can reach 70%~100%. Vaccinating poultry in advance is an effective way to prevent the spread of avian influenza.
Avian influenza viruses can be divided into 16 H subtypes (H1～H16) and 9 N subtypes (N1～ N9), among which the most harmful to poultry are H5, H7 and H9 subtype strains. The bird flu vaccines on the market are mainly inactivated vaccines, which are safe to use, easy to store, and have no pollution hazard. They are not sensitive to the neutralization of maternal antibodies, and are easy to make combined vaccines or multivalent vaccines. Plastic vaccine bottles have good barrier properties and tightness, and are light in weight, not fragile, and easy to transport. They can be used as packaging containers for inactivated avian influenza vaccines.
Plastic vaccine bottles are different from glass packaging. The bottles can be processed into various colors according to the needs of pharmaceutical companies to increase brand recognition and improve product market competitiveness
