use of stall side tests to confirm infection in joints
Research supports the use of SAA in assessing placentitis
A recent Kentucky research article supports the use of SAA
in monitoring infection over fibrinogen and white blood cell count
and in assessing equine placentitis
A recent study on the use of EquiChek in differentiating infected
joints from those that were inflamed but not infected.
A recent study has shown that the EquiChek SAA point‐of‐care test has
proven highly specific and sensitive in differentiating infected joints from
those that were inflamed but not infected. The study concluded that
given results of cytological analysis can be delayed in an ambulatory
setting, and that synovial bacterial culture has high false negative
returns and can take 3–5 days, the EquiChek technology has potential
to become extremely useful in aiding immediate septic synovitis diagnosis.
