Maxiban®

Maxiban®

Dual-action Maxiban® is a potentiated chemical that’s a 1:1 mixture of an ionophore (narasin) and a chemical (nicarbazin) to prevent coccidiosis throughout the bird’s life. This combination delivers multiple benefits:

  • Powerful, Flexible Anticoccidial Option — By combining an ionophore and a chemical at lower doses, Maxiban allows for a wider dose range and extended use with minimal resistance concerns and maximized results.
  • Dual Threat to Coccidiosis — Attack cocci in two ways with Maxiban’s dual mode of action.
  • Protects Intestinal Integrity — Coccidiosis prevention also helps protect birds from enteritis and proliferation of the secondary pathogen Clostridium perfringens.1,2
  • Responsible Antibiotic Use — Maxiban is among the most powerful ionophores. Get high performance that fits within animal-use-only antibiotic policies to meet consumer demands.


Inclusion Rate: Feed continuously as the sole ration at 54-90 g/ton.

Control Coccidia in Chickens With Maxiban

Dual-action Maxiban prevents coccidiosis throughout a bird’s life with a reduced risk of resistance.

Low levels of narasin and nicarbazin create a complex dual mode of action that results in long-term efficacy with less resistance risk than high-dose, single agent medications.³

Maxiban is proven to be effective in more cycles each year, allowing more flocks to reach their potential and providing greater value to your operation.

Maxiban is among the most potent ionophores on the market and can be combined with Inteprity®, which helps control necrotic enteritis, all while fitting within animal-use-only antibiotic policies to meet consumer demands.

Combining narasin and nicarbazin creates a synergistic effect that results in greater anticoccidial activity than when either ingredient is used alone.

Maxiban directions for use:

For the prevention of coccidiosis in broiler chickens caused by Eimeria necatrix, E. tenella, E. acervulina, E. brunetti, E. mivati and E. maxima:

• Feed Maxiban at 54-90 g/ton

• Feed continuously as the sole ration

• Requires a zero-day withdrawal (when fed according to the label), some combination use requires 5-day withdrawal

CAUTION: Nicarbazin medicated broilers may show reduced heat tolerance if exposed to high temperature and high humidity. Provide adequate drinking water and ventilation. Do not allow adult turkeys, horses or other equines access to formulations containing narasin. Ingestion of narasin by these species has been fatal. Do not feed to laying hens.
