The concept of BIOSECURITY, is getting stronger and taking center stage more and more nowadays, stepping forward in the animal production industry. This may be due to extrinsic factors, such as limitations in some pharmacological substances, a growing matter, or customer demands, but also due to some intrinsic factors, related to the production itself in regards to densities, certain emerging pathogens, etc. 

BIOSECURITY is understood as a set of measures, that will be carried out in order to avoid the entrance and spreading of pathogens into a farm/industry. This is a very simple way to understand the concept. 

The reality is that every individual operation requires a proper and thorough examination, for each different situation, followed by execution of a specific working protocol, taking into account every singularity. This is why, from GRUPO OX, we refer to the concept as INTELLIGENT BIOSECURITY.

Of course, incubators and hatcheries are not slipping away from it, just the opposite, BIOSECURITY is even more important in this kind of premises, due to the nature of the process, in terms of temperature and humidity needed for the correct embryo development within the egg, which are ideal as well for pathogens settlement and development, such as: 

There is therefore a huge risk of contamination at all the different stages of the process, compromising productive parameters, if we don´t put the proper barriers in place.

Usually, incubators/hatcheries are premises with a relatively complex structures, or at least, when compared to other premises within the same sector (think about a broiler or a laying hen shed), with complex ventilation and humidity systems, different environments in different rooms, etc.

Besides, there are fertile eggs or just day-old chicks inside, whose immune system is not properly developed, and so we need to be extra careful. This is the reason why
