Dear Peyi Dengah
Thanks for your kind words.
Biogen is a very good material specific to increase immune responces of fish and leading to increase its stocking density with good results.
The source of Biogen is Manufactured by China Way Corporation (1999), you can search about its site and adress to contact with it.
Biogen is a natural non- antibiotic feed supplement comprised of Allicin (aged garlic extract ) not less than 0.247 M mole / gm ,Bacillus subtilis nato ( 6 ? 107¬- cells / gm), high unit hydrolytic enzymes not less than 3690 units / g, (Amylotic, Lipolytic, prolytic and cell separating enzymes), germanium (Ginseng 41.98 ppm of Ge. element ) and organic selenium. It can enhance the metabolism and energy of fish body cells, raise the efficiency of feed utilization and balance the secretion of various secretary glands. Moreover, it increases the vitality of cells by supplying oxygen to whole body, improve the immune responses, helps to excrete heavy metals, inhibits aflatoxin and maintains the normal endocrine system.

Biogen has bactericidal effects and increases the palatability of feed, promote the secretion of digestive fluids and stimulates the appetite (China Way Corporation, 1999).

Dear Mr. Mehrin,
Thank you for your comprehensive information of Biogen probiotic.
But I've been using organic acid salt called Calcium Propionate in my diatery for nila tilapia.
My query is, is it possible to put in together Calcium Propionate and Biogen probiotic of diatery Nila Tilapia?
What is the effect? Positive or negative?
