Camelplas is used to supplement the immune response system of alpacas, llama and camelid species suffering from a range of immune deficiencies.Camelplas is Plasvacc's camelid plasma product and is supplied under APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicine Authority) permit. Rich in gamma globulins, Camelplas is collected from hyperimmunised donor dromedary camels that reside at the Plasvacc plasma production facility, the only facility of its kind in Australia. Camelplas is used to supplement the immune system of camels and is a highly effective treatment for Failure of Passive Transfer (FTP) and Partial Failure of Passive Transfer (PFPT) in alpaca cria. Camelplas can also be used to great effect as a supportive therapy for a range of conditions, such as diarrhoea, colitis, renal conditions and active infections. Camelplas has been proven to be completely safe and effective for all camelid species, including alpacas and llamas.
Quality ControlPlasvacc is the only APVMA licenced plasma production facility in Australia, and, in accordance with APVMA protocols, our quality standards are subject to intense APVMA scrutiny. Every batch of plasma undergoes extensive quality control checks. These quality checks span a three month period and ensure that each batch of Camelplas is disease-free, free of all blood cells and contain a concentration of gamma globulins 2-3 times higher than that of normal camels. Camelplas is the only camelid plasma product in Australia that can guarantee high and uniform gamma globulin concentrations in each treatment unit. Every 300mL treatment unit of Camelplas will contain a minimum of 4.5g of gamma globulins, sometimes much more.
