Avaliable language options:
AAHL is NATA accredited to provide a wide range of testing to determine innocuity of materials, exclude adventitious agents and for other specialised purposes.
Innocuity testing is one of the many services we offer at AAHL.
The innnocuity team at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) offers a range of tests to detect or exclude the presence of adventitious agents in veterinary vaccines, including viruses, bacteria, fungi and mycoplasma.
Testing is generally done on seeds for veterinary vaccines, for example, seed cell lines, seed virus or bacteria on permissive cell lines over three to four passages followed by immunodetection or molecular testing.
The testing follows international standards such as AQIS, USDA 9CFR and European Pharmacopoeia and recently updated Department of Agriculture guidelines for testing imported veterinary vaccines.
