Introducing the Foal Immunoglobulin (IgG) Rapid Quantitative Test Kit, a vital diagnostic tool engineered for the precise measurement of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) levels in foals. This kit is specifically designed to address the critical need for early detection of immunodeficiency conditions in newborn equine, providing a quantitative assessment of the IgG concentration in plasma or serum samples.

Key Features:

  • Targeted for Equine Use: Specially formulated for foals, this kit helps veterinarians assess the passive transfer of immunity from mare to foal, ensuring the neonate's health and readiness to face environmental challenges.
  • Versatile Sample Compatibility: With the capacity to analyze both plasma and serum samples, the kit offers flexibility in sample collection, accommodating varying clinical settings and preferences.
  • Optimized Sample Volume: Requires only a 75μL sample to conduct the test, minimizing the volume of blood needed from the young foal and ensuring a more humane and less stressful collection process.
  • Comprehensive Detection Range: Capable of detecting IgG levels ranging from 100 to 3000 mg/dL, this kit enables veterinarians to identify foals with adequate, borderline, or deficient levels of IgG, guiding appropriate intervention.
  • Quick Reaction Time: Delivers accurate results in just 15 minutes, facilitating rapid decision-making and timely administration of treatments if necessary.
  • Long Shelf Life and Convenient Storage: With a storage requirement of 4-30°C and a 24-month shelf life, the kit is both durable and convenient for on-site or field use.

Reference Ranges for Foal IgG:

  • Low Levels: <400 mg/dL - Indicates a significant risk of infectious disease due to insufficient passive transfer of immunity.
  • Suspected Low: 400-800 mg/dL - Suggests a possible inadequate passive transfer, warranting close monitoring or intervention.
  • Normal: >800 mg/dL - Represents a successful passive transfer of immunity, indicating the foal is likely to have adequate protection against early-life infections.

It's crucial for laboratories and veterinary professionals to calibrate the reference range of this test to the specific population they are evaluating. Diagnoses should be made considering the complete clinical picture, including other symptoms and test results.

The Foal Immunoglobulin (IgG) Rapid Quantitative Test Kit is an indispensable resource for equine veterinarians and breeders, ensuring the health and well-being of foals by providing critical insights into their immune status shortly after birth.
