Kaycee News #10 - December 2015
The Kaycee Twinjector Syringe is specifically designed to deliver two vaccines of differing viscosity out of one needle, the hand operated repeater syringe is able to be used with all oil and water based vaccines.
It features two independently adjustable dose ranges of 0.05ml each, 0.1ml each or 0.05ml and 0.1ml. Built with chrome plated brass, it is a tough and robust syringe with no brittle parts to shatter if dropped. Fitted with two rear tube-feed connectors for easy connection to tube-feed vaccine bags and reservoirs. All parts are still replaceable and we will continue to offer servicing and maintenance during the long life of your syringe.
In a recent interview with Dafydd Morris in Fish Farmer Magazine, business manager aquaculture for MSD Animal Health UK, his comments on the benefits of a three-in-one vaccine mirrors our belief in the benefits of a two in one syringe.
‘’Multiple injections not only increase the workload for fish farmers, but can negatively impact fish welfare and growth due to increased handling and extra feed withdrawal periods.’’
‘’With [the new trivalent] only requiring one single vaccination there is the direct cost saving in vaccination man hours and associated labour.’’
‘’THESE FACTORS COMBINED CAN PROVIDE DEMONSTRABLE COST SAVINGS.’’

It is the culmination of significant research and development in response to the needs of the aquaculture industry, part of working closely with our customers and incorporating their feedback into the development of our products.
Staying true to the design of our current syringe range it is comfortable to handle, ergonomic in design and allows for long sessions minimising operator fatigue. We ensured ergonomics remained as a key design feature as vaccination teams identify the four finger trigger and round rubber grip, the same used on all our syringes, as an essential design aspect that dramatically reduces the risk of muscle pain after extended usage.
The Twinjector Syringe also takes advantage of our new and improved counter system. Held in a clear acrylic case and water sealed with a plastic cap and o–ring, the Kaycee Counter System provides an accurate count of the number of doses made, for easy tracking of your team's efficiency and throughput.
