The rapid test to control the equine IgG-concentration in serum, plasma and whole blood of newborn foals
The Fassisi Equine IgG Rapid Test is a reliable method to check the success of a passive transfer of equine IgGs from the dam to the foal.
The concentration of equine IgGs from the mother's colostrum is crucial for the healthy growth of the foal. A lgG concentration of more than 800 mg/dl in the blood is necessary for an adequate infection protection of the foal. Whether the concentration of equine IgGs in the blood of the foal is sufficient can be checked with the rapid test. The test line is more intensive and more pronounced the lower the IgG concentration in the sample is.
Thus, the equine IgG concentration can be determined directly no matter where and, if necessary, immediate measures can be taken to provide the animal with sufficient immunological protection.
