The Ani Hb/Hct is an innovative and highly portable, hand-held device which eliminates all the stress, expense and unreliability associated with anaemia testing. Single tests for anaemia* in companion animals are notoriously tricky to perform and often even harder to justify due to the expense and effort; all the blood required, not to mention the cumbersome equipment and the time it takes to get a result – but not anymore!
Now it’s possible to obtain a highly accurate result in under 10 seconds from a device which sits in the palm of your hand and uses only a pin prick of blood from either a capillary or venous source – ideal for exotic, small or stressed pets or animals in their natural environment. The results are easy to read and there’s no waiting around to begin treatment.
Anaemia develops in animals via a number of underlying conditions. Irrespective of the aetiology, anaemia reduces the number of circulating red blood cells thereby reducing the patients’ total oxygen concentration, leaving it breathless and lethargic and in some cases jaundiced and unwell.
The diagnosis of anaemia relies upon the determination of Packed Cell Volume (PCV), or Haematocrit (Hct) and Haemoglobin (Hb) concentration. Although PCV equipment is readily available in all registered practices it can be arduous to set-up and perform. Not all practices have in-house haematology analysers to determine Hct and Hb concentrations.
