VAXIMATES  0.1 - 0.5ml
FISH INJECTION SYRINGES ("GUNS")

TheVaximate

The “Ultimate V-vaximate

Description:

The “Vaximates” are automatic injection syringes for fish vaccination (injection "guns"), proven accurate and effective for fish vaccination by intraperitoneal injection. Handling time, fish as well as operator stress are minimal. The syringes are made of light-weight, durable plastic and provide adjustable dose (from 0.1ml up to 0.5ml).

Luer lock hypodermic needles, of suitable lengths (3-7mm) may be fitted on to the guns. The needle length depends on the fish size, that is, the thickness of the fish abdominal walls.

The inlet valve, the vaccine chamber and the piston with its 'O'-ring are made of durable synthetic materials.

All parts are long-lasting and need minimal maintenance other than the normal cleaning after use.

The “Ultimate V-vaximate

Advantages:



Brief user instructions:

  1. Fit the PVC vaccine feed tube (contained in the package) to the gun's inlet point (hose spigot) and then pierce the vaccine bottle's rubber cap with the draw-off feed needle fitted to the distal part of the feed tube.
  2. To prime, adjust dose to the maximum (0.5ml) and operate trigger until the air is expelled from the feed tube and from the body of the gun and the vaccine fills the chamber and starts to flow from the gun.
  3. Adjust the desired dose (most often 0.1ml). The tip of the piston is adjusted to correspond to the appropriate indication depicted on the vaccine chamber.
  4. Fit and lock the hypodermic needle to the syringe luer lock stem, by turning it clockwise until secure (finger tight). Fish injection needles range in length according to fish size. Start injecting.
  5. Replace the needle once it feels less effective when piercing the fish abdominal walls (usually after about 1500 injections).
  6. Clean the Vaximates after use with a light soapy detergent dilution followed by rinsing with distilled water. The process of cleaning and rinsing the guns is similar to repeating step (2) above several times.
  7. For long term storage, clean the Vaximate (step 6), dismantle, pull the piston out of its chamber and let all parts to dry out. Smear the piston 'O'-ring with some vegetable oil (avoid liquid paraffin or castor oil) and refit the piston. Re-assemble the gun and store in a dry place.

 

Note: Do not boil the Vaximates for sterilisation. The plastic may soften and bend.


Packaging:

The Vaximates are distributed singly packaged, complete with a user instruction leaflet, a spare piston 'O'-ring, two metres of PVC vaccine tube and a stainless vaccine draw-off feed needle as an optional extra.
