Measuring enzymes specifically secreted by the pancreas assists in the diagnosis of pancreatitis. Up to 75% of cats have acute or chronic pancreatitis. The Vcheck fPL is an in vitro diagnostic test kit for the quantitative measurement of feline pancreas-specific lipase concentration in feline serum, plasma and whole blood.
Serum, Plasma (EDTA) 25μl or Whole blood 50μl
Nonspecific clinical signs of pancreatitis: poor or absent appetite, lethargy, weight loss, dehydration, and diarrhea
Feline pancreas-specific lipase test correlates very well with pancreatic inflammation
The best overall sensitivity and specificity compared to other serum markers
To diagnose and rule out feline pancreatitis
Time-course monitoring of pancreatitis in cats during recovery
To assess the secondary damage to pancreas in case of other digestive disease such as cholecystitis or enteritis, etc
