The RX misano has been developed with user convenience in mind. Incorporating a responsive touch-screen display, sleek ergonomic design and intuitive user-friendly software enabling test menu personalisation making it ideal in the veterinary market. The capability of utilising such a small sample volume of 5μl caters for smaller animals and the small footprint (6kg) allows for easy transportation.
The RX monaco is a fully automated, cost effective clinical chemistry solution offering the ultimate in user convenience. At optimal configuration, the RX monaco performs 170 tests per hour, making it ideal for mid to low volume veterinary laboratories. The RX monaco is a fully automated analyser which can be either floor standing or on a bench top to fit your laboratory’s needs. The RX monaco can utilise a sample volume as low as 3μl to cater for smaller animals.
The RX daytona+ is a bench-top, fully automated, random access clinical chemistry analyser capable of performing 270 photometric tests per hour, or 450 tests per hour including ISE. The RX daytona+ offers a cost-effective testing solution to any veterinary laboratory through low consumable costs including a low water consumption of only 5 litres per hour at optimum use.
The RX imola is a cost-effective system that delivers consistent high-quality results. With a throughput of 400 photometric tests and up to 560 tests per hour including ISE, the RX imola provides rapid, comprehensive testing on a small footprint analyser. The RX imola is a high throughput cost effective solution for veterinary labs, the permanent Pyrex cuvettes will save money as they won’t need replaced and the direct heating method rather than a water bath will also alleviate costs. The RX imola will save labour time via its ability to pre-set up to 50 reference ranges for each assay enabling ranges to be set for the most common species treated at the practice.
The RX modena is a high volume, floor standing, fully automated clinical chemistry analyser that promises to revolutionise your laboratory and transform diagnostics. Icon based, interactive touch-screen technology adds a modern flair to your laboratory. Capable of running up to 1,200 tests per hour, with direct HbA1c testing abilities, the RX modena consolidates all your assay requirements onto one intuitive platform, offering a winning combination for large, multi-disciplinary laboratories. The RX modena is capable of utilising a sample volume as low as 0.5μl to cater for smaller animals.
Extensive Dedicated Test Menu
- Extensive test menu allows for revenue generation & business growth via more on-site testing which will also minimise time spent waiting for external results to return. The most extensive test menu on the market enables breadth of diagnosis and provides a competitive market edge resulting in increased profits and business growth.
Flexibility & Versatility
- Ability to personalise parameter settings for a wide range of animal species increases lab efficiency. Custom build test menus and create favourites to enable personalised panels, such as diabetes and renal function, or species-specific panels such as equine and companion animals.
Minimal Sample Volume
The RX series is capable of utilising small sample volumes thus catering for smaller animals were samples can be hard to obtain, the sample volume of each analyser is as follows:
• RX misano 5μl
• RX monaco 3 μl
• RX daytona+ 1.5 μl
• RX imola 2 μl
• RX modena 0.5 μl
Unique & High Performing Veterinary Tests on the RX series
CRP (C-Reactive Protein) is an acute phase protein produced by the liver in response to tissue injury, infection, or other inflammation. In animals, serum levels increase within 4-6 hours of such events, making CRP a much earlier indicator than other acute phase reactants.
Canine CRP is used when inflammation is suspected and allows the extent of inflammation to be determined. Used in conjunction with physical examination of signs and symptoms. It can be used to determine acute inflammatory conditions and to detect a relapse of an immune mediated disease or flare-up of a chronic inflammatory disease.
Bile acids are compounds that are made in the liver and stored in the gall bladder. Bile acids help with digestion of foods, particularly fat. Bile acids are measured to determine liver function and performance; elevated levels of bile acids in the blood are a result of ineffective reabsorption by the liver after digestion, and as such indicate that the liver cells are not functioning well. Randox Bile Acids test allows for liver function issues to be detected quickly, allowing early treatment and enabling the liver to regenerate before irreversible damage occurs.
D-3 Hydroxybutyrate (Ranbut) is a major ketone body in the blood produced when fatty acids in the liver are metabolised for energy. Elevated levels of ketones are referred to as ketosis, and occur when insufficient energy intake results in negative energy balance; ketosis can be toxic and damaging to the kidneys and liver. Many animals suffer an increased risk of ketosis as a result of high energy demands during lactation, pregnancy and birthing.
A major complication associated with ketosis is pregnancy toxemia in ewes or twin lamb disease, a metabolic disorder caused by insufficient nutrients and severe energy shortage.
Glutathione Peroxidase is an antioxidant enzyme that helps protect the body from free radicals. It contains selenium, an important trace element that is essential for enabling selenium-containing proteins, such as glutathione peroxidase, to function correctly.
The Randox Ransel test is used to measure glutathione peroxidase activity to determine functional selenium deficiency; it is considered more accurate than measuring selenium levels directly as low selenium concentration does not necessarily mean an animal is selenium deficient.
Adiponectin is a protein hormone and is secreted by adipocytes, with anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitising properties. It plays an important role in a number of metabolic processes such as glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation.
Testing of adiponectin can effectively assess the risk of an equine patient developing Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), allowing preventative action to be taken before the disease takes hold.
Low levels of adiponectin equal an increased risk of EMS.
Total Antioxidant Status (TAS) is the assessment of the overall antioxidant function in the body. This is determined with the measurement of the total amount of antioxidants circulating the body. Different forms of antioxidants include those which inhibit the formation of free radicals, those which destroy free radicals, and those which repair the cells damaged as a result of free radical attack; a reduction in either of these components can compromise the body’s total antioxidant capacity.
Assessing an animals total antioxidant status is crucial as a reduction in total antioxidant status inhibits defence.
