SNAP IDEXX Rapid Assays

SNAP IDEXX Rapid Assays

  • The ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) is one of the most sensitive and reproducible Diagnostic Technologies available. IDEXX puts this superior technology to work in the small, easy-to-use format you’ve come to know as a SNAP Test.

Antigen is bound when the enzyme-linked antibody conjugate and blood sample are combined

The wash step removes non specific unbound conjugate and blood sample components from the background matrix, clearing the way for the final steps.

The matrix is pre-coated with antigen specific antibodies.

The substrate moves across the cleared matrix. The substrate reacts with the conjugate to AMPLIFY the presence of antigen for increased sensitivity and unmistakable, clear blue read.

The conjugate and the antigen Bind to the matrix-bound antibody, Forming a “Sandwich”

SNAP – Fecal Sample Test Procedure

SNAP 4Dx Plus Test

Provide a more thorough annual parasitic disease screen and reinforce the importance of tick control. The SNAP 4Dx Plus Test provides accurate results for 6 Vector-Borne Diseases

  • Heartworm,
  • Lyme disease,
  • Ehrlichia ewingii,
  • Ehrlichia canis
  • Anaplasma phagocytophilum
  • Anaplasma platys

Result in 8 minutes using one Patient Sample – Whole Blood, Serum or Plasma

SNAP GiardiaTest

Giardia infection is often missed with fecal floats alone. Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) recommends a combination of fecal flotation with centrifugation, direct smear and, for symptomatic patients, a Giardia ELISA. Catch more Giardia-positives with the quick and accurate SNAP Giardia Test.

SNAP Parvo Test

Detect parvovirus during viral shedding before clinical symptoms appear.The SNAP Parvo Test will not cross-react with modified live vaccines and easy-to-use swab greatly reduces risk of contamination.

Result in 8 minutes using one Patient Sample – Feces

SNAP Feline Triple Test

In communities where dogs get heartworm, cats can too. Raise the standard of care for cats in your practice with this three-in-one test. Features FIV and FeLV detection as well as a screen for feline heartworm antigen.

Result in 10 minutes using one Patient Sample – Whole Blood, Serum or Plasma

SNAP FIV / FeLV Combo Test

American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) guidelines recommend testing all at-risk cats, sick cats and kittens to determine infection status. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) Infections are two main causes of illness and death in cats.

SNAP Feline Probnp Test

Test apparently healthy cats considered at risk for cardiac disease (murmur, breed, history, arrhythmia), any cats with respiratory signs to help rule out cardiac causes, and adult cats prior to anaesthesia.

Result in 10 minutes using one Patient Sample – Serum or Plasma

SNAP Lepto Test

Test every sick dog that presents with signs consistent with Leptospirosis, including fever, lethargy, and anorexia.

Result in 10 minutes using one Patient Sample – Whole Blood, Serum or Plasma

SNAP CPL Test

2The only pet-side test to measure Canine Lipase levels specific to the pancreas, making it the most accurate point-of-care test to help diagnose or rule out pancreatitis in dogs presenting with vomiting, anorexia or abdominal pain.

Result in 10 minutes using one Patient Sample – Serum

SNAP FPL Test

The only pet-side test to measure Feline Lipase Levels specific to the pancreas, making it the most accurate point-of-care test to help diagnose or rule out Pancreatitis in cats presenting with lethargy, decreased appetite, dehydration, weight loss, vomiting and/or diarrhea.
