Needle-free single fixed-time insemination
Wean older, heavier, more uniform piglets.
Use of OvuGel® means:
- Ovulation and breeding are synchronized in a group of sows
- Gestation length can be accurately predicted
- More sows farrow soon after entry to the farrowing room
- More nursing days per piglet
OvuGel® is a thin, clear to slightly hazy gel. Each mL of OvuGel® contains 100 μg of triptorelin (as triptorelin acetate) for intravaginal administration. Triptorelin acetate is a synthetic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist which acts at the anterior pituitary gland to induce luteinizing hormone (LH) release, which in turn stimulates ovulation. This physiological response allows for the synchronization of time of insemination in sows following weaning to facilitate a single fixed-time artificial insemination.
Store at refrigerator temperature between 2 °C and 8 °C. OvuGel® should be administered within 1 hour of warming; unused portions may be refrigerated immediately after use. The vial stopper may be punctured a maximum of three times. Discard 28 days after the stopper is first punctured. OvuGel® is available in 50 mL vial.
