The E.R.D.-HealthScreen® Urine Tests is rapid immunological test for identifying microalbuminuria, uses monoclonal antibodies specifically targeted against feline or canine albumin. Quick results in less than 5 minutes, allowing additional blood/urine sampling if needed. Semi-quantitative. Shows negative, low, medium, high and very high positive test results. Extremely accurate – no false results.
The E.R.D.-HealthScreen® Urine Tests detect small amounts of albumin in the urine. Conventional urine tests (urine specific gravity, BUN, creatinine) don’t detect kidney damage until – 75% of kidney function is lost. Animals that belong to a risk group for attaining a chronic kidney affliction as a result of age or genetic predisposition could be screened annually using the E.R.D. Health-screen ®.
Microalbumin (MA) has been clinically defined as levels of albumin in the urine grater than normal (1mg/dL) and less than overt proteinuria (30mg/dL) at a standardized specific gravity of 1.010. A recent study showed the E.R.D.-Healthscreen® correlates well with other semi-quantitative methods for detecting proteinuria, including the UPC ratio.
This is an excellent monitoring tool that indicates the severity of disease, treatment success and progression of kidney damage. It alerts you to the presence of kidney damage that could be caused by many common inflammatory, infectious, metabolic and neoplastic diseases. It able to detects albumin at a sensitivity of up to 30 times higher than conventional dipsticks. Product by Woodley Equipment Company Ltd. BUY NOW
