Eliminating parvovirus by heat treatment and gamma irradiation
Reported on 20. Mai 2011
Parvoviruses (e.g. MPV) are characterized by an increased ?????Aa?K??¹?? resistance to inactivation. In studies with bone marrow transplants for parvovirus a destruction value (D10) by gamma irradiation is determined at 7 kGy. At this context the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute attested that for a moderate inactivation 1-4 log 10 steps are necessary.
The gamma-irradiated LASvendi products are treated with minimum 21 kGy. A destruction of the parvoviruses of at least 3 log10 levels is assumed. Furthermore it should be noted that the food will undergo a heat treatment (about 2 min> 90 ° C) at production. A destruction of approximately 4 log10 steps to be expected.
Based on the current data, a gamma irradiation of >21 kGy are considered to be safe for MPV.

Special Pasteurization HYSYS eliminats germ content under detection limit
Reported on 21. Mar. 2011
HYSYS pelleting is an alternative to the extruder. Here, prior to the pelleting, the meal is heated up to 95 & ?????Aa?K??¹??deg;C and 240 seconds. By this novel pasteurization technique pathogens are eliminated efficiently. Even at 85 °C and 120 sec, the germ count is reduced under undetectable levels.
The advantages of the HYSYS-pelletizing technique are:
• optimal sanitation - efficient elimination of pathogenic germs
• lower production costs, much lower price
• no carryover e.g. of meat, blood or fish products
• higher bulk weights = better use of feeders
HYSYS is the standard for all LASvendi rodent diet food.
