AniPOC A1c is a product that enables first opinion and referral practices to measure the diabetes blood biomarker HbA1c (i.e., glycated haemoglobin A1c). This biomarker has been recognised by American Diabetic Association as having clinical significance in the diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes in humans. The clinical significance of HbA1c in the management diabetes in companion animals is known to veterinary endocrinologist and is attracting wider interest, however, there are no tests for HbA1c that have been designed or validated for veterinary application. AniPOC Ltd is therefore working towards being the first to market with a validated HbA1c test for cats and dogs. The product requires nothing more than an ear prick drop of blood and delivers results in less than 3 minutes of sample application to the test cartridge.
