Company: Ceva Biomune

BRONCHITIS VACCINE, Georgia Type, Live Virus

Directions For Use


This monovalent vaccine contains serotype Georgia (GA) of Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV). This vaccine is recommended for use in chickens as an aid in the prevention of bronchitis caused by IBV GA08 and as an aid in the reduction of bronchitis caused by IBV GA13. This Bronchitis vaccine is presented in a frozen form. The IB virus particles are very fragile and require careful handling to prevent damage or loss of titer in order to achieve optimum efficacy. The vaccine is stored and shipped in frozen form in liquid nitrogen.

Storage Conditions

• Vaccine ampules: Store in liquid nitrogen

Cevac IBron Indications

This vaccine is recommended for use in healthy chickens one day of age or older as an aid in the prevention of bronchitis caused by IBV GA08 and aid in the reduction of bronchitis caused by IBV GA13. Good management practices are recommended to reduce exposure to Infectious Bronchitis virus for at least two weeks following vaccination.

Preparation And Administration Of Vaccine

Carefully read the directions before use. The instructions must be completely followed.

Match the vaccine dose size to the proper non-chlorinated water dilution for coarse-spray administration:

1. Store in LIQUID NITROGEN. Storage or transportation of vaccine in a mechanical freezer (0°C or below) or dry-ice containers (-40°C) should not exceed 24 hours to prevent reduction on efficacy.

2. Be familiar with all safety and precautionary measures for handling liquid nitrogen to prevent personal injury.

3. Wear gloves, a plastic face shield and protective goggles before removing vaccine ampules from the liquid nitrogen.

4. Check the container to confirm a sufficient amount of liquid nitrogen is present to keep the vaccine frozen. If the vaccine has been thawed, do not use the vaccine. The containers (Dewars) must be checked regularly for liquid nitrogen level and must be refilled as needed.

5. A maximum of 4 ampules should be thawed at one time. After inspecting the diluent and completing all preparations, the vaccine should be quickly removed from the Dewar and placed into a clean 76°F-80°F (24.5°C-26.5°C) thaw bath.

6. Gentle agitation during the thawing process promotes rapid, uniform thawing and evenly distributes the vaccine in the ampule.

7. Be sure vaccination equipment is clean and ready for vaccination. Avoid chemical disinfectants (bleach, quaternary ammonia, etc) to come in contact with vaccinating equipment.

8. Be sure spray cabinet is calibrated to deliver the require volume of vaccine per chicken by spraying into a volumetric cylinder.

9. Immediately after thawing, mix the vaccine with the diluent at room temperature (68-77°F or 20-25°C). Gently draw the vaccine from the ampule with an 18-gauge, 1.5 inch needle and slowly mix with the diluent. Rinse the ampule one time with the diluted vaccine.

10. Transfer vaccine contents from ampule with a sterile 2-5 cc plastic disposable syringe and 18 gauge needle into cool, deionized water at the rate of 200 mL per 1000 doses or 2000 mL per 10,000 doses (DESVAC cabinet or equivalent) or 70 mL per 1000 doses or 700 mL per 10,000 doses (other spray cabinets).

11. Attach spray head to vaccine container and set nozzle at a coarse spray setting.

12. Administer vaccine to each tray of 100 chicks. Spray 18-24 inches from the spraying heads.

13. Each tray (100 birds) should receive approximately 7 (other spray cabinets) to 20 mL (DESVAC cabinet or equivalent) of vaccine.

14. Whatever volume of vaccine is used in the spray cabinet, be sure to administer 1000 doses to 1000 birds.

15. CAUTION: always wear personal protective equipment (goggles, air mask) while spraying a live virus vaccine.


This vaccine has been thoroughly tested for safety, purity and potency and is in compliance with all applicable USDA and Biomune Co. standards.
