Can pathogens and virus be transferred with blood plasma/can PDEv be transferred with blood plasma?
APC´s manufacturing process is optimized to preserve the highest level of biological activity of all bioactive components, reducing pathogens and microorganisms to a level of complete safety.
PEDv can only survive in 7 days in spray dried plasma at 20⁰C
The virus loses infectivity above 60⁰C
Plasma is spray dried, and spray drying inactivates PEDv as temperature is over 80⁰C (spray drying temperature between 80 and 90⁰C) See OIE TECHINACAL FACTSHEET
PEDv´s primary mode of transmission is through direct contact with infected pigs, manure or from contaminated trucks.
APC has conducted a series of experiments to determine the biosafety of plasma relative to PEDv.
