Consumables FAQs

Can this test be used on cats?

Yes, however since cats typically only have 1-2 worms, the sensitivity is lower.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine and Feline Heartworm Rapid Test?

Canine Sensitivity: 92% Canine Specificity: 100%; Feline Sensitivity: 77.9% Feline Specificity: 99.7%

How does the Heartworm antigen test work?

Sample and specific colloidal gold-conjugated antibodies combine in the conjugate pad creating antigen-antibody-gold conjugate. The test is pre-coated with antigen-specific antibodies at the test “T” line. The conjugates flow across the membrane and bind to the antibodies in the test line forming a “sandwich”. The accumulation of “sandwich” complexes in the test “T” line creates a visible signal.

Where can I find the lot number?

The lot number can be found on the top and bottom of the box.

What species does the Ehrlichia Abaxis Rapid test detect?

E.canis, E.chaffeensis and E.ewingii

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine Ehrlichia Rapid Test?

Sensitivity: 93.4% Specificity: 96.7% E. canis: 97.8% E. ewingii: 97.9% E. chaffeensis: 95%

How does the Ehrlichia antibody test work?

The conjugate pad is pre-treated with specific colloidal gold-conjugated peptides and colloidal gold-conjugated signal amplification proteins. The membrane is pre-coated with antibody specific peptides that have been linked to a protein carrier at the Test “T” line. When the sample flows through the conjugate pad both colloidal gold conjugates bind to any specific antibodies present in the sample. When the gold labeled antibodies reach the test “T” line specific antibodies bind to the test “T” line forming an “amplified sandwich” complex which has been augmented by Abaxis’ patented signal amplification technology. The accumulation of the amplified sandwich complexes creates a visible signal.

Where can I find the lot number?

The lot number can be found on the cartridge pouch, the buffer bottle, or the side of the box.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine Parvovirus Rapid Test?

Sensitivity: 96.9% Specificity: 96.9%

Where can I find the lot number?

The lot number can be found on the top and bottom of the box.

What species does the VETSCAN Canine Anaplasma Rapid test detect?

A. phagocytophilium and A. platys

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine Anaplasma Rapid Test?

Sensitivity: 97.5% Specificity: 93.6% A. phagocytophilum: 97.8% A. platys: 97.9%

How does the Anaplasma antibody test work?

What does the Giardia test detect?

Antigen secreted from the cyst in the feces.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine Giardia Rapid Test?

Sensitivity: 98.1% Specificity: 99.3%

Where can I find the lot number?

The lot number can be found on the top and bottom of the box.

Why is the Lyme test an antibody test?

Very low levels of antigen are found in blood. There is a protein segment on the spirochete that antibodies are made against only when infection is present. This antibody level rises quickly with infections and falls quickly when infection is cleared.

How is Lyme diagnosed?

History of tick exposure or lives/visited an endemic area, clinical signs, positive antibody test, response to therapy.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VETSCAN Canine Lyme Rapid Test?

Sensitivity: 100% Specificity: 100%
