Test, then treat
RapidBac™Vet is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria in urine.
This test provides veterinary practices with an accurate and cost-effective point-of-care solution that can be performed during the patient’s initial office visit, for one of the most commonly ordered laboratory procedures.
Until now, the only accurate method of detecting bacteriuria was by urine culture, an expensive and time-consuming test performed at specialized laboratories. Expand your in-house testing capabilities and you won’t have to wait days for results of a test performed by a third party outside of your office.
TRIED, TRUE, TESTED
Validated by experts in the field
A clinical study at North Carolina State University compared the performance of RapidBac™Vet to urine culture at a cutoff of 1000 CFU/ml, using canine urine samples. The results showed a Positive Predictive Value of 95% and a Negative Predictive Value of 99%.
The results have been published in the February, 2016 issue of the American Journal of Veterinary Research (Jacob ME, Crowell MD, Fauls MB, Griffith EH, and Ferris K. “Diagnostic accuracy of a rapid immunoassay for point-of-care detection of canine urinary tract infection.” AmJ Vet Res 77:162 (2016))
