Superior Performance & Unique Diagnostic Veterinary Reagents

Copper is one of the several essential trace elements in animal life required for red and white blood cell formation, healthy nerve fibres, pigmentation, wool growth and bone growth 1. In animals, whilst copper deficiency is one of the most commonly diagnosed trace element deficiencies, over-supplement of copper can lead to copper toxicity 2.

Copper deficiency is common in bovines, mainly cattle and sheep, caused by two factors: low copper levels in plants in copper-deficient soils, and an induced deficiency due to ingesting excessive levels of other elements, including: sulphur, iron and molybdenum in feed supplements or pastures 1.

On the other hand, bovines such as sheep and calves prior to weaning are the most susceptible to copper toxicity. This can occur as a result over excessive ‘therapeutic’ amounts of copper are added to the feed to avoid copper deficiency, however, it’s more commonly the result of long-term ingestion of copper in quantities which exceed the nutritional requirements 3.

Diabetes mellitus (DM), is commonly observed in middle aged and older canines and felines. Certain conditions predispose canines and felines to DM, including being overweight, inflammation of the pancreas, and certain medications which interfere with insulin, such as glucocorticoids. DM can also occur in the young which is attributed to a genetic factor. DM is more commonly observed in female canines and male felines 4.

Fructosamine testing is utilised to evaluate a canine or feline’s response to treatment which provides the canine or feline’s average glucose concentrations for the previous 7 to 14 days 5.

The NBT method is commonly utilised in fructosamine testing, however Randox offer the enzymatic method which improves specificity and reliability. The Randox enzymatic fructosamine assay displayed a correlation coefficient of r=0.9192 when compared to the NBT method.

Non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) reflects the energy status of animals, with high NEFA concentrations indicating a negative energy balance. A negative energy balance occurs when caloric intake is lower than energy expenditure. High serum NEFA concentrations and a negative energy balance are risk factors for metabolic disease 6.

Energy balance is one of the most critical nutritional factors affecting animal health, reproductive performance and lactation 7.  A negative energy balance has been observed in several animal species and should be observed especially in bovine (cattle, goats, sheep), feline and equines.

Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme responsible for catalysing the dismutation of superoxide radicals (O2-), a primary reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by the body, to hydrogen peroxidase (H2O2) and molecular oxygen (O2), the inadvertent by-products of aerobic metabolism. Consequently, SOD plays an integral role in protecting the body from oxidative stress 8, 9, 10.

SOD measurement is particularly useful in endurance horses as oxidative stress increases with prolonged endurance training. Decrease levels of SOD can cause fatigue, muscle damage, stiffness, and decreased performance 11.

SOD measurement is also useful in dairy cows who experience oxidative stress and a reduce antioxidant defence capacity during postpartum period and lactation 12.

Zinc is an essential trace mineral in animals and is required for the normal functioning of organisms. Involved in several biochemical processes, including: RNA and DNA expression and cellular use of oxygen and respiration, sequestration of free radicals, protection against lipid peroxidation and maintenance of cell membrane integrity 13.

In canines, zinc is not easily or readily absorbed in the intestines. The absence of zinc in canines causes various abnormalities affecting the immune system, metabolic function and the skin. Moreover, zinc deficiency can cause zinc responsive dermatosis, a keratinisation disorder (abnormal skin production) 14.

Zinc toxicity has been observed in exotic, large and wild animals due to dietary indiscretions. Zinc toxicity causes decreased weight and milk production in large animals and lameness and epiphyseal in foals 15.

Canine infection test redesigned to create less laboratory wastage

News       About Us        Canine CRP

New Randox Canine CRP Test

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. 

Lynsey continued;

“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.

Lynsey concluded;

 “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.
