Feline Diagnostic Kits
Feline Blood Collection Kits
Plasvacc USA’s Feline Blood Collection Kits allow for a safe and specialized blood collection in cats. The Single Feline Blood Collection Kit is useful for veterinarians looking to collect feline whole blood with effortless means. The Double Feline Blood Collection Kit is useful for veterinarians looking to separate feline Red Blood Cells from plasma in an easy and efficient manner. Either kit can be stored at the clinic to have on hand in the event an emergency transfusion is needed.
Single Feline Blood Collection Kit includes: 1x60ml sterilized blood collection bag, 60cc syringe, 19G butterfly catheter, 18G luer needle, and 1x10ml ACDA anticoagulant.

VMRD Feline Serum Amyloid A Test
The VMRD Feline SAA test measures serum amyloid A (SAA) in feline serum or plasma. SAA is an inflammatory biomarker that helps to diagnose infection and monitor treatment efficacy in multiple species, including cats. It is more sensitive and reliable than body temperature and WBC count for detecting acute infections, as it is highly dynamic in response to systemic inflammation. As infection resolves, SAA decreases rapidly.
This 10-minute lateral flow test can easily be run in-clinic, with numerical results provided by the handheld VMRD Reader.
Feline Blood Typing
Alvedia feline blood typing tests are easy-to-use in-clinic tests designed to determine the major immunoreactive blood types of cats. The tests use immunochromatography and the A and B blood group antigens (cat). These tests can be performed with as little as one mL of blood with results obtained within three minutes. Knowing the blood type of donors and recipients is important in transfusion medicine, in particular in cats where a mismatched blood transfusion can cause rapid death. Feline blood typing tests are available individually (QuickTest) or in a pack of 20 (LabTest)
