VMRD SAA Reader
Detection of Serum Amyloid A (SAA) in whole blood.
VMRD - Serum Amyloid A Reader
Reader for use with the Serum Amyloid A (SAA) Test that provides a quantitative result in whole blood samples.
Early identiﬁcation of systemic inﬂammation and infection is challenging, as the clinical signs can be subtle. SAA is an indispensable tool to aid equine veterinarians in this challenge, since levels increase with acute inﬂammation even more rapidly and dramatically than elevations in ﬁbrinogen or WBC count. SAA starts dropping as soon as disease begins to resolve, allowing objective monitoring of clinical condition and treatment eﬃcacy.
As inflammation improves, it begins dropping within 12-24 hours.
This dynamic nature of SAA makes it an ideal marker for evaluating disease severity and monitoring progression or resolution of illness, including response to treatment.
Each test must be timed and result read at 10 minutes.
