The first Feline XM Test that combines high technology and innovative packaging for an easy to use procedure testing. Our new Feline Crossmatching Test (XM) will allow you to perform MAJOR and MINOR XM at the same time. This test will also detect AB blood groups for both donor and recipient which represents a double checking system. The Feline XM Test is useful before ANY blood transfusion (even the first transfusion). This XM Test will allow you to pick up incompatibilities across all feline blood groups: A, B, AB and other systems (example Mik antigen).
The determination of blood type is an essential process that ensures animals will benefit from transfusion support. Nowadays, a cat has a significant probability of being transfused once or more in their lifetime. Basic blood typing is essential to perform these first and subsequent transfusions as safely as possible and also to make the best use of the donated blood.
Our Feline crossmatch test (major and/or minor) is based on a an immunochromatographic technology. We have incorporated on a membrane a specific feline antiglobulin that will detect the presence of immunoglobulins (IgG&IgM) and/or C3 components binding to the red blood cells surface (RBCs).
Our Feline major crossmatch Test will allow you to pick-up incompatibilities across all feline blood groups (A, B, AB, Mik and other unknown antigens…).
Our blood bags are made with medical raw material that are specially manufactured in France, for preservation, separation and centrifugation of blood units. Quality controls are made all over the production chain under ISO certification. Each individual package is sterilized for a safe use.
Today, the Gel Test is widely used in the world since it quickly became the human Gold standard in the Immunohematology diagnostic field. Thanks to this new technology the sensitivity has been highly increased compared to conventional methods (tube tests or others).
One of the main advantages of the Gel Test technology is the fact that cells never need to be washed for crossmatching or to perform direct antiglobulin testing. Other positive effects are the small sample size needed and the time saving.
Thanks to his long experience in the Immuno-hematology field, we were able to launch the Alvedia Gel Test range which aims at becoming the new veterinarian gold standard in order to provide veterinary health professionals with the most sensitive, reliable and rapid technology.
