15 SECOND HB/HCT RESULTS AVAILABLE IN YOUR PRACTICE

“We are thrilled at the response of London Vet Show attendees to the unveiling of the AniPOC Hb/Hct. Delegates were impressed by the speed and accuracy of the device and many were quick to secure the discountedrate promoted at the Show.This is the first time such an accurate test has been possible in a portable device. After such a positive response at the LVS we believe this affordable, patient-side test will enable forward thinking Practices to innovate and streamline the care they give. Any Practice looking to meet the growing demands ofmodernVetinerary medicine & care really should consider having this device in their diagnostic tool-kit”.
Richard Littlehales, Chief Executive, AniPOC Ltd

Single tests for anaemia* in companion animals are notoriously tricky to perform and often even harder to justify due to the expense and effort; all the blood required, not to mention the cumbersome equipment and the time it takes to get a result – but not anymore!

The AniPOC Hb/Hctis an innovative and highlyportable, hand-held device which eliminates all of the stress, expense and unreliability associated with anaemia testing in the past. Now it’s possible to obtain a highly accurate result in under 15 seconds from a device which sits in the palm of your hand and uses only a pin prick of blood from either a capillary or venous source – ideal for exotic, small or stressed pets or animals in their natural environment. The results are easy to read and there’s no waiting around to begin treatment.

Widely available in Spring 2017, AniPOC Ltd are launching a Pre-Order List at the London Vet Show with prototype devices available on early release prior to that. Those Practices able to take advantage of the pre-order facility will not only lock-in the guaranteed discount of £50 per starter kit but will also ensure they receive priority handling prior to the device being released to the general UK market next year.

*Anaemia Info

Anaemia develops in animals via a number of underlying conditions. Irrespective of the aetiology, anaemia reduces the number of circulating red blood cells thereby reducing the patients’ total oxygen concentration, leaving it breathless and lethargic and in some cases jaundiced and unwell.

The diagnosis of anaemia relies upon the determination of Packed Cell Volume (PCV), or Haematocrit (Hct) and Haemoglobin (Hb) concentration. Although PCV equipment is readily available in all registered practices it can be arduous to set-up and perform. Not all practices have in-house haematology analysers to determine Hct and Hb concentrations.

AniPOC Ltd Information

AniPOC Limited is an early stage biotechnology company developing and commercialising portable point-of-care (POC) diagnostic tests for rapid in-clinic diagnosis of diseases affecting companion animals.With an initial focus on anaemia, diabetes and other endocrine disorders.

The POC diagnostics market is large, growing and active.  The essence of the market is the drive to create devices that will provide a near instant test result to the testing clinician typically on a small blood sample, avoiding the need to send samples to an external testing laboratory and to call a follow-up patient consultation to present results.  The development of POC diagnostic devices promises to provide clinicians and healthcare systems with low cost disease testing for widespread health screening, as well as offering new tools for disease management.
