Veterinary Analysis Devices
Analysis Devices for the Veterinary Lab
Analysis devices in the veterinary clinic and practice provide quick determination of multiple parameters in blood and milk. In our assortment, you will find a selection of affordable analysis devices for veterinary purposes.
Veterinary Analysis Devices
Veterinary analysis devices are used to determine proper therapy for a patient, as quickly as possible. This is absolutely necessary in emergency situations. Measured values can be quickly transmitted without the need for waiting on an external laboratory. Analysis devices also deliver a precise overview of the animal's bodily composition during checkups.
Thanks to their easy operation, most blood analysis devices are optimal for use in the internal laboratory and provide evaluation of many different parameters.
Determining Blood Coagulation in Veterinary Medicine
In order to diagnose a patient with a blood clotting disorder, analysis devices are used which are able to evaluate and transmit these parameters. These haemostaseological tests should be carried out if the animal suffers from thrombosis or is frequently inclined to bleeding and poor wound healing.
Such a blood analysis is also necessary if the patient is taking blood thinners over a longer period of time, which increases the risk of bleeding. Likewise, blood clotting disorders can be indicators of serious diseases, such as kidney failure and leukemia.
Haematocrit Analysis in the Veterinary Lab
Haematocrit evaluation currently plays a meaningful role in emergency medicine. Horses that suffer from colic must be treated as quickly as possible. In this case, every second can be a matter of life and death. A conservative treatment is often sufficient to save the patient, as long as the colic was recognised early.
The haematocrit value represents a critical parameter in equine medicine. Based on the haematocrit, it can be determined how heavily haemoconcentrated the patient is and how stable or unstable the horse's circulatory condition is. With infusion therapy, the patient's liquid level can be brought back into balance and intestinal activity reestablished during equine colic.
Determination of Colostrum Quality
With help of a refractometer the quality of the colostrum of cows and horses can be determined quickly and easily. The Brix value allows the drawing of conclusions regarding the gamma globulin concentration in the milk, which provides immediate information about its quality. Depending on the percentage, it can be decided whether the colostrum is suitable for feeding.
Analysis devices should be a part of every veterinary clinic and practice's laboratory inventory, as they support the correct choice of treatment during emergency situations.
