TEMPE, Arizona, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Spectrum Group, a global leader of diagnostic and treatment solutions for allergy (SPOT Test) & recurrent bacterial infections (becSCREEN™), has announced its partnership with Biogal-Galed Labs to bring VacciCheck™ to the US pet market.
"We, as pet advocates and partners with the veterinary, rescue and boarding communities see this as an ideal opportunity to provide the industry with a product that can assist in reducing over-vaccination of dogs and potential adverse reactions" said Mervyn Levin, President of the Spectrum Group.
The Canine VacciCheck™ kit is used as an in-house diagnostic tool to evaluate the amount of antibodies present for core vaccines (Canine Infectious Hepatitis, Canine Parvovirus, and Canine Distemper Virus).
VacciCheck is especially useful to determine if a dog requires an additional core vaccination, and may save the dog from unnecessary over-vaccination and subsequent adverse events. It can also help determine a dog's unknown vaccination history and determine if puppies have received adequate immunity.
Spectrum's Canine VacciCheck™ has been described by Professor Ronald Schultz as "a cost effective, user friendly and expedient titer test".
Canine VacciCheck™ is unique, as it quantitatively checks for all 3 core vaccines. This is carried out as a single test in a vet clinic, veterinary lab, animal shelter, with results available in 21 minutes.
For shelter hepatitis, parvo or distemper outbreaks, VacciCheck rapidly and cheaply tests populations that are susceptible to or protected from these diseases. This allows many animals to live, that might otherwise have been euthanized.
