An Introduction to the NEW Foal IgG test

The latest edition to the VeraSTAT-V testing menu is the foal IgG test. Essential IgG antibodies are not transferred maternally to a foal within the womb, meaning the foal is born with no immune system to defend itself from potential bacterial infections outside the womb. Low IgG levels can lead to further complications such as pneumonia and arthritis.

The new born foal only has 24-48 hours in which its intestinal mucosa remains permeable enough to absorb the antibodies, it is therefore crucial to measure whether a foal has received enough IgGs during this timeframe to protect its immune system until it is old enough to produce its own.

Why this test is essential 

The VeraSTAT-V device measures quantitative levels of IgG in blood to determine whether a sufficient transfer of antibodies have been achieved. Ideally the IgG levels should exceed 800mg/dL2. Levels below 400 mg/dL indicate inadequate passive transfer and the need for IgG supplementation.

Foals with low IgG levels are usually unable to fight infection and are therefore more likely require veterinary intervention. In this case immunoglobins should be tested regularly to ensure that enough antibodies have been received before the foal can be discharged.

Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports events?

Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports?

1 September 2021: Why does Randox sponsor Equine Sports?

Some may be wondering, why is a healthcare company so invested in the equine industry? Why would they sponsor the world’s most famous steeplechase – The Randox Grand National?

It’s a labour of love… Peter FitzGerald’s fond attachment to the equestrian world, together with 40 years’ experience in the in vitro diagnostics industry, was the perfect match.

Clinical diagnostics is at the heart of Randox and our experience and expertise has paved the way for the development of innovative and accurate diagnostic products for Equine Health.

You could say ‘it runs in our blood.’

With 70% of all medical decisions based on the analysis of blood, Randox are set to release the VeraSTAT-V, a stable-side Equine Serum Amyloid A test device designed to detect levels of inflammation in horse blood in a matter of minutes.

The ability to quickly detect and monitor your horse’s health, at the stable side, brings huge benefits to both horse and owner. Early detection of inflammatory states means treatment plans can start sooner, recovery periods are shorter, and the horse can return to work healthy much earlier.

When performance is key, monitoring inflammation is vital.

Whether it’s detecting inflammation related to joint injury, or screening for infection before or after transport, competition or surgery, the VeraSTAT-V is a valuable means to monitor Equine Health.

At Randox, we have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with the Jockey Club and will continue to deliver innovative diagnostics solutions to the Equine Industry for the years ahead.
