LEXINGTON, Ky., Dec. 9, 2014 — Neogen has expanded its line of highly accurate Prima Tech® drencher and pour-on guns to include larger capacity versions of existing products that administer oral and transdermal treatments to livestock.
|Neogen’s Prima Tech 80 mL Drencher and 80 mL Pour-On Gun|
Neogen’s new Prima Tech 80 mL Drencher and 80 mL Pour-On Gun adjust from 20 mL to 80 mL in 2 mL increments, and feature dial-a-dose systems with large finger grips to make dosing changes easy even in difficult conditions. Especially when treating animals of a mixture of ages and weights, the simple dose changing system enables an operator to easily change dosage without wasting product.
“These new products are the result of customer feedback that asked for larger capacity dosing,” said Neogen’s Kim Quinn, who joined Neogen with the company’s acquisition of Prima Tech in November 2013. “Both products will have numerous immediate applications, but the pour-on version will be especially of use with the expanding use of transdermal applications in the animal health industry.”
As with previous versions of Prima Tech veterinary drenchers and pour-on guns, with the new products the gun barrel fills completely after each shot then pushes from the back. The products’ soft tubing stays flexible, and does not become brittle in cold weather, nor kink or catch on objects while in use. Large 12 mm inlet spigots ensure faster fill times and quick treatments. Neogen offers numerous accessories for the new drencher and pour-on guns, including angled, hooked and T-bar applicators, that allow the products to fit the requirements of almost any operation.
Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. Neogen’s Lexington, Ky.-based Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
