Utilized by the Catalyst One Vet Chemistry Analyzer of globally renowned manufacturer, IDEXX, the Dry Slide Technology grants veterinarians with the confidence in their in-house diagnostics. Learn more about how this unique technology guarantees more reliable results for our pet patients’ chemistry tests.
How It Works
Catalyst One Analyzers use slides to analyze the samples from our pets. These slides employ the dry slide technology through its extensive layers. The samples are placed on these slides which then undergo the five layers beneath the sample area. Each layer has its own distinct purpose: the spreading layer, the filtering layer, the reagent layer, the indicator layer, and the support layer.
According to studies, up to 73% of veterinary samples are compromised. The dry slide technology, with its meticulous sample processing, minimize impurities for the most accurate results. Once the slides and sample have been inserted into the analyzer, the Catalyst One analyzer incubates the slides and sample. The sample is then accurately dispensed onto the slides, the analyzer measures the color development of the slide, and then all used materials are removed from the analyzer.
The Catalyst One analyzer can perform a wide range of in-house tests through the use of its slides and CLIPs. For increased flexibility and rechecking purposes, veterinarians can utilize the individual slides for their practice. IDEXX has also developed preloaded clips to deliver the vital parameters needed for standard in-house testing in a single run. Through MAN Pharma, the exclusive Filipino distributor for IDEXX, you can maximize your chemistry diagnostics by employing the Catalyst One and its array of slides and clips.
