2. Adjuvants are sold as sterile reagents and should be handled aseptically. Any introduction of contaminants during vaccine preparation can adversely affect the desired antisera. The contaminants can be more immunogenic than the antigen, resulting in the production of antisera specific for the contaminant rather than the antigen. If the adjuvant becomes contaminated, it should be discarded. 3. Excessive amounts of adjuvant can be immunosuppressive, resulting in low yields of antibody. Adjuvants, therefore, should be used at or near doses recommended by the manufacturer.

5 ml of TiterMax. 25 ml of aqueous antigen. Detergents will weaken the emulsion and should be avoided. 25 ml of aqueous antigen for further use. 3. Connect the two syringes to the 3-way stopcock. It is important to begin the emulsification process by forcing the aqueous antigen into the TiterMax. 3). 4. Force all of the emulsion into one syringe and disconnect the empty syringe. 25 ml of antigen that was previously withheld. 5. Reconnect the syringes. Push the aqueous antigen into the emulsion first, then repeat the emulsification process for an additional 60 s.
