Randox Veterinary Diagnostic Reagents Panel

Randox reagents have been used in the veterinary market for over 30 years and are scientifically proven to work successfully with many different species of animals*. The biochemical composition of all animals, including humans, is very similar; thus, although made from human compounds, our assays are suitable for use in the veterinary market. In addition, the wide measuring ranges of our assays ensure suitability across a vast range of species.

Assays we offer

Our range of veterinary reagents is vast, from

Zinc – to detect poisoning particularly useful for household pets due to the prevalence of zinc in various household items which can easily be ingested.

Copper – suitable for detecting copper deficiency as Cattle can incur increased molybdenum, naturally found in some soils and fertiliser, leading to depleted copper levels.

5th Generation Bile Acids – have high sensitivity and are a specific hepatic function marker for the detection of liver damage. Beneficial to indicate conditions such as Cholestasis, Ragwort poisoning, and Portosystemic venous shunts, a hereditary condition in cats and dogs.

Randox has a range of tests which are rare and very beneficial to the veterinary market:

  • Non-Esterified Fatty Acids (NEFA)

The NEFA test provides an indication of the extent of mobilisation of fat reserves; NEFA is a major component of triglycerides (fats) in the body and are released when triglycerides are broken down for energy. Triglyceride breakdown occurs when carbohydrate intake is insufficient for the body’s energy demands; this is referred to as negative energy balance, of which prolonged time in this state can have damaging effects on the body. Elevated NEFA levels indicate negative energy balance.

Negative energy balance is particularly prevalent in animals that require high energy levels such as dairy cows; high energy is required for milk production, and in addition energy demand is increased further during pregnancy as the cow not only prepares for lactation, but at the same time suffers from reduced food consumption due to the foetus restricting the size of the rumen. In addition, the NEFA test is valuable for the routine health checks of animals susceptible to negative energy balance such as llamas and alpacas.

Extensive and prolonged use of body fat for energy (reflected by elevated NEFA levels) can result in loss of body condition; this is because as the body moves fat from its reserves to the liver, in preparation for conversion into energy, fat can accumulate resulting in a fatty and low functioning liver. Monitoring NEFA levels can help with the diagnosis of this condition which is called hepatic lipidosis, otherwise known as feline fatty liver syndrome due to its predominance in cats.

  • D-3-Hydroxybutyrate (Ranbut)

Randox Ranbut is a highly sensitive assay for the detection of elevated levels of ketone bodies in the blood; ketones are produced when fatty acids in the liver are metabolised for energy (the breakdown of fat stores in the liver occurs if energy demands exceed carbohydrate intake). Elevated ketone levels are referred to as ketosis. Ketosis can be toxic and damaging to the kidneys and liver; it occurs during times of high energy demand, when synthesis exceeds breakdown.

D-3 Hydroxybutyrate is the most sensitive marker of ketosis as it is the most abundant ketone. Ketosis has been associated with pregnancy complications such as twin lamb disease, decreased milk production and hypoglycaemia; therefore monitoring ketone levels is very important in veterinary, particularly in animals during milk production, pregnancy and immediately after birth (times of high energy demand).

  • Glutathione Peroxidase (Ransel)

Randox Ransel is used for accurate reflection of selenium levels, an important trace element involved with producing thyroid hormones, the antioxidant glutathione and boosting immunity. Selenium deficiency can have detrimental effects such as increased risk of miscarriage and muscular degeneration. It is used to test for a range of diseases related to selenium deficiency such as white muscle disease in sheep and goats. It can also be used the measure the effectiveness of drugs used to treat selenium deficiency, and to ensure a balanced level is maintained as high selenium levels can be toxic.

  • Total Antioxidant Status (TAS)

The TAS assay is used for the assessment of general antioxidant health; the Randox TAS assay allows animal samples to be measured for their total antioxidant capacity. Our TAS assay has proved useful in assessing oxidative damage in racehorses to establish levels of training required before endurance races, as well as recovery times. In addition our TAS assay has been used to establish reference ranges in beagles, and with a wide measuring range it can measure both very high and very low TAS levels in dogs.

  • Superoxide Dismutase (Ransod)

Randox Ransod is used for assessing antioxidant function; superoxide dismutase is an enzyme with the vital role of breaking down superoxide, one of the most harmful free radicals in the body, into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. The superoxide dismutase test is particularly relevant for horses; intense physical exercise can disturb antioxidant/oxidant balance and so this test can be used to determine if their levels of superoxide dismutase or training is hindering them.

The cCRP assay is used for the detection of inflammation, infection and tissue injury in animals; CRP is an acute phase protein produced in response to trauma or infection, and with increases in serum within 4-6 hours, it is a much earlier indicator than other acute phase reactants. In addition, CRP levels return to normal quickly at the end of an acute episode, and therefore it is useful for both the detection of acute episodes as well as in monitoring treatment.

The Randox Canine CRP assay has been extensively tested and is validated for use in canines; with specific reference ranges for canine samples it is highly accurate, and, manufactured from the same materials as our human diagnostic CRP it is of the same high quality. Its uses include diagnosis of conditions including tissue injury, pancreatitis, neoplasia, steroid-responsive meningitis arteritis, valvular disease, parvoviral enteritis, nasal disease, inflammatory bowel disease, cystitis and renal disease.

We also provide a range of therapeutic drugs reagents and coagulation reagents for veterinary use. For more information on these assays please contact us, or alternatively download our veterinary brochure.

Superior Performance & Unique Diagnostic Veterinary Reagents

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.

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.
