Animal vaccines are biological products that prevent and reduce the occurrence of diseases. Different vaccines have different requirements for packaging materials and specifications. So what are the commonly used materials of plastic vaccine bottles as vaccine packaging, and what are the differences in specifications and applications?
Plastic vaccine bottles are mainly used for the storage of animal inactivated vaccines. Inactivated vaccines need to be stored in an environment of 2-8 °C to prevent freezing. Common materials for bottles include polypropylene and polyethylene, both of which have good barrier properties and are resistant to corrosion by most acids and alkalis. The difference is that polypropylene has better high temperature resistance, while polyethylene has better toughness, which can be selected according to actual needs.
In terms of product specifications, plastic vaccine bottles are available in 2.5ml, 20ml, 30ml, 40ml, 50ml, 100ml, 250ml, 500ml and so on. Pets are small, and inactivated vaccines mainly use 2.5ml small-volume products. Vaccines for poultry and pigs are mainly packaged in large capacity of more than 100ml, such as inactivated porcine circovirus vaccine, inactivated porcine pseudorabies vaccine, inactivated swine foot-and-mouth disease vaccine, inactivated avian influenza vaccine, chicken infectious rhinitis For inactivated vaccines and mycoplasma chicken inactivated vaccines, this is mainly due to the large scale of the farm, and the large-capacity packaging can save pharmaceutical companies’ investment costs in packaging, and at the same time reduce the purchase cost of farmers.
The above is an introduction to the specifications and materials of plastic vaccine bottles. These bottles of different materials and specifications meet the diversified storage needs of different vaccines in the market and provide an effective guarantee for the safety of vaccines.
