Simcro™️ VS Injector designed from the ground up for compliance and safety
In response to the key compliance and safety challenges that pig producers were facing globally, Datamars – an innovative and quality leader in animal and farm management, developed the Simcro™️ VS Injector.
Working in conjunction with industry, Datamars conducted extensive market research and feedback was obtained from a range of industry stakeholders including swine producers, veterinarians, vaccination crews, safety managers, and industry bodies in the United States, Europe and Australia.
Once the concepts were finalised, extensive on-farm field trials were conducted in the United States, Australia and New Zealand to assess functionality and performance.
“The Simcro™️ VS Injector meets producers’ requirements for compliance and safety – with state-of-the-art features allowing producers and veterinarians to administer animal health vaccines and treatments with optimum operator safety, treatment efficacy and ease of use” Andrew Jackson Datamars Commercial General Manager UK and Ireland explains.
The VS injector can be matched to on-farm treatment protocols with accurate, in-built fixed dose volumes and coloured identification bands. The interchangeable needle guard minimises accidental needle stick injuries for operator safety and reduces the chance of needle breakage. With biosecurity being paramount, the entire injector can be boiled or disinfected to comply with on-farm hygiene regimes.
The VS injector also incorporates an optional, specially developed, interchangeable Ink Stamp marking system. By creating a visible mark around the injection site, the Ink Stamp allows vaccination crews to visibly identify treated animals – and managers to maximise animal welfare and treatment efficacy, by checking the injection has been administered in the correct location.
As a durable and modular system, configurable as either a Tube Fed or Bottle Mount injector, the VS Injector has been ergonomically designed to be a balanced and efficient device that can be used comfortably over extended periods of time.
