We provide cell-free, single-source, 100% traceable, hyperimmunised plasma that is never blended. Because safety and efficacy come first, we prefer collection from a single rigorously screened donor. It ensures traceability and reduces the risk of adverse reactions.
The process of extracting bulk plasma from donors is a complex one, relying on state-of the-art technology and expertise. Our Pheresis Technicians are professionals whose lives and work reflect our values of compassion and responsibility. The horse’s comfort and positive interactions are always a priority. Every donor animal is carefully screened. Red cells are returned to the donor during the process, so the horses can return to the herd setting after donating.
Plasma is collected when uncoagulated blood is allowed to settle, or is centrifuged, allowing its key constituents to separate. There are 8 key steps to the VIL process of plasma collection:
- Donor preparation
- Blood sample collection
- Analysis and testing
- Centrifugal separation
- Plasma collection
- Return of cells to donor
- Freezing & storage
VIL products contain no preservatives and are not pasteurized. Our products are 100% natural and offer a guarantee of quality that only a Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) licensed plasma collection facility can provide.
