AniPOC FTA is a rapid test for the diagnosis of diabetes in both cats and dogs. It enables the quantitative in-clinic determination of serum Fructosamine and Albumin levels using a single disposable test cartridge without the requirement of prior blood separation. It will permit veterinary practitioners to diagnose a diabetic patient quickly and also evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment plan during the stabilization phase. AniPOC FTA when used together with the blood glucose test will present the best case scenario for the diagnosis and stabilisation of animals presented to veterinary practices with symptoms common to the on-set of diabetes, in particular, polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyphagia (excessive hunger) and polyuria (excessive urination).
