FOALCHEK® is a fast, simple and accurate latex agglutination test. The completely equipped kit–with easy-to-follow instructions–yields clear, concise readings of IgG levels. Its unique feature is that it gets you answers on the spot. You can administrer colostrom to deficient foals, wait a few hours, then test again. In this way you can monitor improvements in the IgG level. And, have a greatly increased chance of treating an immunodficient foal!
Unlike some immunodeficiency tests, FOALCHECK® can be used with whole blood, not just serum. That means you can test on the spot, administer colostrum, and test again. And, that means a greatly improved chance of correcting the deficiency before time makes the transfusion your only alternative!
