Gumboro (Infectious Bursal Disease – IBD in short) has been rightly described as the farmers sleeping enemy. The disease is characterised by depression, anorexia, ruffled feathers, restricted movement, disinclination to move and feed, dehydration, prostration, droopy appearance, trembling and ultimately death. The onset of the disease is sudden. The birds are unable to produce immune response. The causative virus spreads rapidly from infected chicks to susceptible chicks and these infected birds shed the virus in droppings and contaminate the surrounding very rapidly causing immense losses to the poultry farming community. The IBD virus is highly resistant to conventional methods of cleaning and disinfection and stays for long periods of time in the environment. NARSIPUR’s CHLORAMINE-T has proven to show destructive effect on gumboro virus by retaining its activity for a considerably long period of time even in present of high organic load. It has the following properties:
Mol. Formula : C7 H7CINNa02S. 3H2 O
Appearance : White powder
Odour : Weak Chlorine
Acidity : pH (25% solution) 8 -10
Assay : 98 - 100 %
Solubility : Water 150 / L (25 C)
Activity of CHLORAMINE-T is based on the release of oxygen and chlorine, thereby ensures the killing of both anaerobic and aerobic bacteria. CHLORAMINE-T is ten times more effective than IODOPHOR, PHENOL and HYPOCHLORITE in presence of organic contaminants.
CHLORAMINE-T as bio-security aid
Spray of 0.5% solution of CHLORAMINE-T provides complete sanitation within 5 minutes. Hatching eggs should be dipped in 0.5% solution of CHLORAMINE-T for 15 seconds to achieve complete sanitation. CHLORAMINE-T is an ideal sanitiser in hatchery to achieve complete sterlisation by a spray of 0.2% to 0.3% solution of CHLORAMINE-T.
It is recommended to use CHLORAMINE-T as a spray and in drinking water in the start of fourth, fifth and sixth week in layers as well as broilers to minimize the chances of viral out breaks.
100 gms of CHLORAMINE-T per 25 lit. of water gives 0.5% solution to provide optimum sanitation. 1 Ltr. of this solution should be sprayed for every 1000 cu. ft. volume of shed. In drinking water, 1 gm/5 lit. of water.
