Here's our regular rundown of new and notable veterinary products.
In-clinic quantitative bacterial culture
CultiPlate-U is designed to bring a new level of simplicity to in-clinic diagnosis of urinary tract infection. Formulated with Vetlab's Spectrum chromogenic agar, identification of the most commonly encountered uropathogens is based on colony color and morphology rather than changes to the color of the media. This makes the product especially applicable to mixed infections.
Bio stain and odor remover
Clorox Disinfecting Bio Stain & Odor Remover cleans, disinfects and deodorizes surfaces and can be used for accidents involving tough bio soils, such as blood, feces, vomit and urine in one easy step on both hard and soft surfaces. The product is scientifically formulated to break down bio soils, eliminate stains and odors and kill microorganisms in as little as 30 seconds, helping reduce the spread of harmful microorganisms and keep surfaces clean and stain-free.
Telehealth market report
Veterinary industry professionals have many questions about veterinary telehealth, including what exactly telehealth means and whether it's even permitted by state veterinary practice acts. The Companion Animal Veterinary Telehealth Landscape Report from Brakke provides answers to these questions and more. The report discusses the forces driving the growth of telehealth and the barriers to its adoption, including the regulatory framework governing veterinary telemedicine.
Equine performance and recovery gels
