London, UK – July 03, 2020 – Zoetis Inc. today announced that it is expanding its portfolio of health products and services for horses with the Stablelab® hand-held, point-of-care diagnostic blood test that provides vets with critical information related to equine inflammation in 10 minutes.

The Stablelab hand-held reader detects and quantifies the biomarker Serum Amyloid A (SAA), a major, acute phase protein produced by the liver that rapidly and dramatically increases in response to inflammation. By measuring SAA, vets can assess the severity of an infection more quickly, often before clinical symptoms start and are able to monitor the horse’s response over the course of treatment.1 

“Zoetis is committed to providing vets and horse owners with the most effective health products to better predict, prevent, detect and treat equine disease,” said Zoetis vet Wendy Talbot. “The Stablelab test kit enables convenient, off-site testing for quick and accurate detection of a reliable indicator of infection in horses.

“Point-of-care testing is one of the fastest-growing areas of diagnostics and this test is rapidly becoming a standard of care in equine practice. SAA testing will help vets to quickly determine an appropriate course of intervention, positively impacting case outcomes.”
