Analyses of these biochemical substances are crucial in assessing the cellular pathophysiological status of the organs in gastrointestinal, genitourinary, cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive and musculoskeletal systems and hence the health of these organs are assessed.
Our laboratory offers common clinical chemistry test panels for horses. This includes comprehensive profile: Glucose, Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN), Creatinine, Total Protein, Albumin, Globulins, Phosphorus, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Total CO2, Anion gap, Total and Ionized Calcium, Total Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphate, ALT, and GGT. Others are renal, liver and muscle profiles, inflammation assessment (Total protein, Albumin, Globulin, Amyloid A in serum), electrolytes balance assessment (Na, Cl, Mg, PO4, Ca, K) and equine weight loss profile (AP, GGT, Bile Acid, Albumin, TP, Total globulin, A/G ratio and CBC). Equine blood gas panel includes testing pH, pCO2, pO2, tHb, K+, Na+, cCa2+, Cl–, Glu, Lac, Crea, Urea, tBil in the whole blood.
Cholesterol, Triglycerides HDL and LDL are also available on demand. Urinalysis is carried out using urine dipstick test, total protein and specific gravity are performed by refractometer along with direct microscopy, stained and unstained urine cytology and urine culture.
