Order your Foal IgG test kit now!
Labmaster is soon launching a new veterinary point-of-care (POC) test for equine health. POC testing is performed and analyzed in non‐laboratory settings – e.g. at stables. This type of testing may provide results more quickly than send-out lab results, and facilitate planning for the next steps of care.
A newborn foal has no natural defence mechanisms against infection. Foals are entirely dependent on antibodies absorbed following ingestion of mare’s colostrum.
- Failure of passive transfer (FPT) of antibodies occurs in 10 to 20% of newborn foals.
- A foal loses its ability to absorb IgGs after 18-24 hours.
- Measure the foal’s IgG levels between 18 and 24 hours of life to ensure sufficient
passive transfer has been achieved.
Performing the Labmaster LUCIA™ Foal IgG test during the foal’s first 24 hours is quick and easy. The test kit is almost here – together with springtime foals!
