Libourne, June 27th
Since 2009 , the C.H.I.C.K. Program (Ceva Hatchery Immunisation Control Keys) has been implemented in thousands of hatcheries around the world by our dedicated teams of technicians.
Today, the C.H.I.C.K. Program will allow more precise decision making where it’s needed - in the hatchery, with the introduction of a new app. All of Ceva’s 60+ hatchery technicians are now equipped with tablets that use powerful new technology to record and measure all critical data from the vaccination process. The easy to read results, including data on individual operators, equipment with analysis and photographs are immediately available to the hatchery manager allowing him/her to make better informed decisions. This information can then be shared to all the stakeholders.
In one click, we display the performance of the vaccination team over the past 6 visits!
Since the app. was deployed in the field in late 2014 we have conducted over 1500 hatchery surveys worldwide focusing on :
● Vaccine preparation
● Vaccination techniques
● Dosing accuracy
● Equipment Care
● Chick and Embryo quality
Commenting on the introduction of the new service, Ceva’s Services Director, Dr. Pascal Anjot said:
“Beyond innovative vaccines, Ceva brings customers new decision making tools for improving the vaccination quality and producing better quality chicks. Thanks to the C.H.I.C.K program app. our teams can work together with hatchery managers to really add value to our partners businesses. The indicators can be translated into improvement plans for Day Old Chicks and the in Ovo process and work on the areas that need attention to maintain the highest levels of performance. This is what Ceva means by the Science of Vaccinology: the ability to use the power of new technology vaccines, with the latest equipment through high quality management decisions at the source of production.”
