Usage of SPF Eggs in the production of vaccine assures abscence of extraneous agents in poultry and human vaccines.
SPF eggs are predominantly preferred over an ordinary fertile egg for virus growth because of abscence of specific antibodies in SPF egg yolks. This characteristic of SPF eggs, in-turn allows to attain considerably higer titre levels of virus than that of ordinary eggs.
The international standards of quality demand usage of only SPF eggs for the production of poultry and human vaccines. WHO, EGG and USDA standards for production of vaccine call for the use of SPF eggs.
SPF eggs totally avoid the hazardous risk of embryo – transmitted and laterally transmitted viral agents as contaminants in virological and immunological research work.
SPF eggs ensure reproducibility of research results in the field of virology and immunology
Use of SPF eggs provides international acceptance to the research work of Virologists, Biotechnologists, Immunologists, Cellbiologists and Oncologists.
