dvm360 product report: Wound recovery clothing, pathogen detection platform and performance dog gear
Here's our regular rundown of new and notable veterinary products.
Post-sterilization wound recovery clothing
The Sputer Shirt is universal for cats, dogs and rabbits-both males and females-providing safer and more effective postoperative care. As an alternative to E-collars, the Sputer Shirt is a patented postoperative dressing designed to protect abdominal wounds from scratching, biting or licking. It provides comfort and allows animals to move freely, while increasing patient and owner compliance and client satisfaction.
Pathogen detection platform
LexaGene's automated instrument quickly detects multiple pathogens with sensitivity and specificity. The technology utilizes single-use disposable cartridges to concentrate and purify genetic material from samples and microfluidics to perform molecular analysis. The LX2™ Beta Prototype design for the veterinary market will allow for cost-effective, on-site pathogen testing in a smaller footprint.
Performance dog gear
Designed to enhance and inspire exploration for canine outdoor adventurers and their human companions, Ruffwear introduces several new performance garments to their line made especially for outdoor winter fun. The Powder Hound Jacket, shown here, is a weather-resistant and insulated jacket. It's ideal for cold-weather activities with a recycled polyester insulated upper panel and a fleece-lined lower panel that holds in warmth and sheds water, snow and dirt.
