Integrated Safety System in place to ensure that all of its plasma products, including Privigen meet the highest safety standard possible. In addition to our own rigorous supervision, our centers are subjected to continual inspections by authorities.
- Pathogen safety: Privigen is based on the proven combination of three pathogen elimination methods: virus inactivation under acidic conditions, virus filtration (nanofiltration) and partitioning. The virus filtration step has been enhanced by using novel filters capable of removing viruses as small as 20 nm.
- The main virus of concern for human plasma-derived products asr human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 and HIV-2), the hepatitis A, B and C viruses (HAV, HBV and HCV), and the B19 virus (formerly named parvovirus B19).
