Equine Haptoglobin Test

Make useful and accurate decisions by testing Acute Phase Proteins

Horses are an important part of many people’s lives and a big industry in many regions. We need them as much as they need us. That is why LifeAssays® AB has developed a unique patented rapid test for Equine Haptoglobin. By providing veterinary practitioners with this valuable laboratory test that can be performed in-house, early disease intervention and more effective treatment can be provided for horses, helping them to live happier and healthier lives.

The immediate detection of an inflammatory response and the monitoring of its clinical course are primary challenges for veterinary medicine. The search for early inflammation markers has therefore been an important focus of veterinary medical research. Special attention has been placed on the identification of biochemical parameters that have the specificity and sensitivity to both signal the presence and evaluate the intensity of inflammatory responses. Acute Phase Proteins are a group of biological markers that show a direct response to acute inflammation and a rapid decrease in concentrations upon removal of inflammation.

Canine CRP Test

Make useful and accurate decisions by testing for C-Reactive Protein: a general inflammation marker

The main reason for measuring C-reactive protein (CRP) is to detect and monitor systemic inflammatory activity and thus help veterinary practitioners to monitor different types of inflammatory diseases. Measurement of CRP is also an effective tool for evaluating treatment efficacy. Repeating the LifeAssays Canine CRP Test during and after treatment will show if the selected treatment (i.e. antibiotics) is effective.

C-reactive protein is a positive acute phase protein and its concentration in blood is greatly elevated in inflammation due to increased production of the protein in the liver. CRP is therefore considered a general marker for systemic inflammation and infection, and levels increase rapidly, about 4–6 hours after stimuli. If the inflammation ceases, CRP concentrations will quickly return to normal. This rapid response makes CRP an almost real-time marker for inflammatory activity and response to treatment.

The VetReader System

One compact reader for all tests
A complete solution for point-of-care analysis.

The LifeAssays® VetReader offers a new alternative for POC testing utilizing the unique and patented magnetic immunoassay (MIA) technique. The system is comprised of two parts: wet chemistry reagents in the assay vial where the immunoreactions take place, and an analytical instrument, the VetReader, for quantification and measuring. The two are linked by a disposable algorithm chip, a computer chip containing all of the data specific to the analysis, as well as a self-executable calculation algorithm. The single-use computer chip is the key to the LifeAssays® POC system, locking the reader to LifeAssays® reagents. When a new reagent kit is opened, the enclosed chip is inserted into the VetReader and remains in the reader until the last reagent vial in the kit has been processed. Upgrades are thus easily provided with each new reagent kit.

Performing tests with the LifeAssays® system is easy and convenient. Once prepared, insert the reagent vial with the sample into the instrument and the LifeAssays® VetReader will automatically perform the measurement and display the results after the completed reaction.
