IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. introduces the SNAP? ELISA test to screen dogs and cats for Giardia infection.
IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. introduces the SNAPÂ® ELISA test to screen dogs and cats for Giardia infection. This test, the first pet-side test to identify soluble Giardia antigen, provides veterinarians with an accurate diagnosis in eight minutes.
"Until now, a fecal float evaluation or a fecal smear provided the only options for screening Giardia in-house, and their accuracy is very low," says Dr. Leif Lorentzen of IDEXX. "The new USDA-approved SNAP Giardia Test is proven to deliver 95 percent sensitivity/99.3 percent specificity compared to IFA and 96.2 percent sensitivity/100 percent specificity compared to reference laboratory ELISA tests."
