Acute Phase Proteins

Acute Phase Protein Tests available

LABORATORY PROFESSIONALS – Are you looking for a reliable measure of inflammatory change?


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 following tests are available through our laboratory service or as ELISA kits.


1. Canine C- Reactive Protein (cCRP)
2. Feline Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein (fAGP)


For an update on the use of APPs in clinical practice watch this short 12 minute webinar from VETCT here:
