Fertipig® is a combination of eCG and hCG hormones in lyophilized powder form + diluent for reconstitution for use in sows. The product is marketed in presentations of 1 box containing 1 vial of lyophylisate x 5 doses and 1 vial solvent x 25 ml.
Once reconstituted, the product is ready to use. One dose is 5 ml. Fertipig® is administered in a single dose. Each dose (5 ml) contains 200 IU of hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) and 400 IU of eCG (Equine Chorionic Gonadotropin, previously called Pregnant Mare Serum Gonadotropin - PMSG). These hormones are natural, not artificially synthesized.
Fertipig® is used for induction and synchronization of oestrus in sows and gilts under different protocols, due to its mimetic action of the natural gonadotropins (FSH and LH) in sows.
Before reconstitution, the product can be stored for 24 months at room temperature and 36 months in air conditioned room. After reconstitution, it can be kept for maximum 28 days at 2 to 8°C
