Acute Phase Protein Tests available

The rapid response of Acute Phase Proteins (APPs) to a broad spectrum of inflammatory stimuli can provide a fast and reliable measure of disease progression and recovery. The three tests detailed below are currently available through our laboratory service:


1. Canine C- Reactive Protein (cCRP) 

2. Canine Haptoglobin (cHapt)

3. Feline Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein (fAGP)
