The Bionote Vcheck V200 is a fluorescence analyser providing accurate diagnosis for dogs and cats.

The Vcheck V200 enables you to achieve true analysis with fluorescence technology, providing reference lab quality without test referrals. Say goodbye to semi quantitative guesswork and don’t rely on a rapid test device reader.

Following its successful launch growing numbers of Vet Practices have discovered how easy it is to enjoy fully quantitative testing for cPL, fPL, cCRP and fSAA with lab quality results in-house.

Canine Cortisol and T4 tests have now been launched to make in-practice point of care testing even better.

The V200 can currently test for the following groups of analytes:

Canine Cortisol is used to help diagnose hyperadrenocorticism (Cushings’s syndrome), the most common endocrinopathy of older dogs and hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s disease), a less common but potentially life threatening disease.

Canine T4 is used to help diagnose canine hypothyroidism, a commonly occurring endocrinopathy caused by decreased production of thyroid hormone. Clinical signs can include lethargy, mental dullness, endocrine alopecia and weight gain.

Pancreatic specific lipase is used to help diagnose pancreatitis in dogs and cats presenting vomiting, fever, anorexia or abdominal pain. The Vcheck 200 enables accurate measurement of:

Real-time inflammation markers – acute phase proteins cCRP and fSAA are real-time inflammation markers in cats and dogs, providing accurate and rapid information about inflammation:

Further tests to be released in 2018 include:

The Vcheck V200 helps the user understand the use of cCRP and fSAA which is quicker and more accurate than a WBC. They are a practical indicator for severity of illness as the marker increases proportionally with the degree of inflammation/infection. Unlike a WBC, the marker is not affected by stress, steroid drugs, NSAIDs and antibiotics. It accurately diagnoses arthritis, enterobrosia and inflammation/infection.

The Vcheck V200 Analyser provides print out and result storage. Results are also available on your smartphone or tablet via InSight Lab Manager – a Lab Management System which integrates your Lab Equipment with the host Practice Management System.

When common fluorescent complexes are used for measurement, results may be error-prone due to overlap between the stimulating and emitted wavelengths. The Vcheck V200 uses Europium which gives more accurate results as the wavelengths of the stimulating and emitted light do not overlap.

The Vcheck V200 analyser is available free of charge under contract from Woodley Equipment Company.
