Canine infection test redesigned to create less laboratory wastage
A new smaller veterinary test kit for the diagnosis of viral and bacterial infections in dogs has been unveiled by global diagnostics company Randox Laboratories.
Suitable for the testing of a wide range of breeds, the test, which monitors levels of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) produced by the liver in response to inflammation, infection and tissue injury, has been redesigned in a smaller size to reduce consumable wastage.
Randox Canine CRP can diagnose conditions such as pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), cystitis (a bladder infection) and inflammatory bowel disease, and can also be used to establish if a dog is pregnant.
Lynsey Adams, Randox Clinical Marketing Manager, commented;
“The redesign of our Canine CRP kit size, which has reduced the volume of the CRP reagent for the diagnosis of canine infection, means that laboratories will produce less waste, and ultimately, be more cost-effective.
“The wide measuring range of this test allows for slight variations of normal ranges across different canine species and ensures accurate results for all breeds.”
Concentration levels of CRP elevate in the blood of canines much earlier post-injury or infection than other biomarkers. This rapid response following trauma (usually within 4 to 6 hours), as well as the fact that CRP levels return to normal quickly at the end of an acute episode, make Canine CRP useful for both the detection of acute inflammation episodes and the monitoring of its treatment, such as steroids or antibiotics.
“As in humans, CRP is used as a marker of inflammatory activity, but with the Randox Canine CRP test, which uses the same high-quality materials as our human assay, CRP can also be tested in dogs to establish a range of viral and bacterial infections.
“As CRP in healthy dogs is present in low concentrations (5 mg/dl), but can elevate to 600 mg/dl, testing for this biomarker can not only detect inflammation but also provide information on its severity.”
The new test from Randox enhances an already comprehensive veterinary test menu of high performance and superior animal health assays including Bile Acids, D-3 Hydroxybutyrate (Ranbut), Glutathione Peroxidase (Ransel) and Total Antioxidant Status, for agriculture and livestock, companion animals, university and research institutes, and the sports industry.
Randox veterinary solutions also include quality control, external quality assessment (EQA) and the RX series range of clinical chemistry analysers.
“We have over 30 years’ experience as a supplier to the veterinary market and are proud to be able to offer veterinarians and other professionals in the animal health industry, tests which are of the highest quality, accuracy and efficiency.
“Offering the complete veterinary diagnostics package of clinical chemistry analysers, reagents, and quality control, Randox is transforming the landscape of veterinary diagnostics, by providing a time and cost effective, flexible and versatile approach to animal health testing.”
Benefits of the new Randox Canine CRP Kit
- Immunoturbidimetric method.
- New kit size – R1 2 x 18.1ml, R2 2 x 5ml offering efficiencies in cost and reagent wastage.
- Wide measuring range of 0.8 – 220mg/dl for the comfortable detection of clinically important results. CRP in healthy dogs can be found at levels below 35 mg/L, therefore Randox Canine CRP comfortably detects abnormal levels.
- In addition, a wide measuring range allows for slight variations of normal ranges across different canine species and ensures accurate results for all.
- Liquid ready-to-use reagents for convenience and ease of use.
- Calibrator included in the kit offering a cost effective canine CRP testing solution.
- Dedicated canine CRP controls available offering a complete testing package.
- Instrument specific applications available for a wide range of clinical chemistry instruments.
