Make quick and accurate decisions by testing
Acute Phase Proteins SAA
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 SAA. 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.
