Shrimp farming suffers heavily from WSSV infection and it has become a major epidemic in recent times making shrimp culture a very highly risky enterprise. The entry of the virus into the body of shrimp is a complicated process. WSSV enters the shrimp body by establishing contact with receptors present on the surface of some of the cells. Some of the molecular receptors present on the WSSV interact with shrimp cell surface proteins and assist the viral entry into the shrimp body. VP28 protein is identified as one of the main viral receptors involved in this viral entry process. It is proved by the scientists that disruption of interaction of VP28, VP37, VP39 and other critical proteins with shrimp cell surface receptors reduces WSSV infection by limiting the process of viral entry into the shrimp body.
VIRACLE® is a prophylactic solution against viral infections. VIRACLE® is designed to disrupt the interaction of molecular receptors present on the virus and receptors present on the shrimp cell surface thus protecting the shrimp from WSSV and other viral infections.
Composition:Virus deactivating agents, herbal extracts, enzymes, binders and stabilizers
Dosage : 25 to 30 ml of VIRACLE® per kg of shrimp feed or as directed by the consultant. To be used from the second day after seeding.
Method of application : VIRACLE® is e mixed with sufficient water and then sprayed on shrimp feed. The feed is to be dried for 15 to 20 minutes before applying it in the pond. For better results, VIRACLE® may be combined with KARYOVIR®. Usage of VIRACLE® in combination with KARYOMAX+® helps in very faster growth.
