VMRD Serum Amyloid A Reader
Detection of Serum Amyloid A (SAA) in whole blood.
VMRD - Serum Amyloid A Reader
Early identification of infection or systemic inflammation is challenging, and initial
clinical signs are often subtle. Serum amyloid A (SAA) is a valuable tool as it is rapidly
responsive to clinical changes. Virtually undetectable in normal horses, it increases
within 6-12 hours in acute inflammation and peaks at 1000-fold baseline values – far
quicker and more dramatic than fibrinogen or WBC count. 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.
