New in the range: Serum Amyloid A (SAA) VET
simple, sensitive, excellent results

The VET-SAA test extends the application in veterinary medicine to include numerous animal species compared to the LZ-SAA test. In addition to horses and cats, the VET-SAA test can be used to test dogs, cattle, monkeys and
other species are being tested.

Mast CryoBank

MAST CRYOBANK™ is a microbial cryopreservation system comprising chemically treated beads covered with a special cryogenic preservative solution within a cryovial.

MAST CRYOBANK™ permits the establishment of microbial culture collections for laboratory accreditation and research purposes, providing a cost-effective alternative to lyophilisation, repeated subculture or purchase of commercially available control organisms.

• Easy to store – packs designed to fit freezer racks.

• Easy to locate – organism reference grid printed on lid.• Versatile – suitable for all labs dealing with bacteria

• Reliable – long-term storage and preservation of fastidious organisms.

• Convenient – colour coded to assist with categorisation of micro-organisms.

• Cost-effective – economic 64 tube presentation.

An 18 well Cryoblock is also available for maintenance of cryovials at low temperature during use, to ensure micro-organism viability.

Anca Dot.jpg


The ANCA Dot is a qualitative dot immunoassay for the determination of IgG antibodies against myeloperoxidase (MPO), proteinase 3 (PR3) and glomerular basement membrane (GBM) in human serum. The ANCA Dot is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of systemic vasculitis and autoimmune renal disorders in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.

Systemic vasculitis (SV) pathogenesis is mainly identified by the inflammation of different blood vessel walls and the resulting morphological changes. Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) play an essential role in the serological diagnosis of SV. These antibodies are usually determined by indirect immunofluorescence using ethanol fixed human neutrophils. Cytoplasmic ANCA (cANCA) and perinuclear ANCA (pANCA) are distinguished based on the immunofluorescence pattern.

Goodpasture syndrome, a medical emergency with a high fatality rate if not treated, is characterized by glomerulonephritis, pulmonary haemorrhage and antibody formation against glomerular basement membrane (GBM). The antibodies targeted against GBM component are the primary pathogenic autoantibodies, binding along the glomerular basement membrane and inducing glomerulonephritis in all patients with Goodpasture syndrome. Their determination allows differentiating the syndrome from other causes of glomerular nephritis and pulmonary haemorrhage.

Dot immunoassays are frequently used for the determination of specific antibodies directed against multiple antigens. The test strips are coated with various antigens at consistent intervals. If antibodies are present in the patient's sample, they bind to the respective antigens. A secondary antibody conjugated with the enzyme alkaline phosphatase detects the generated immune complexes. A colorless substrate is converted into a colored, insoluble product. The signal intensity of the precipitated reaction product is proportional to the antibody activity in the sample.
