IDEXX Launches Catalyst® SDMA Test
Pets can’t talk to you about their kidneys. Catalyst® SDMA can.
The Catalyst® SDMA Test will be available exclusively on Catalyst One® and Catalyst Dx® chemistry analysers.
IDEXX first launched the IDEXX SDMA™ Test at its reference laboratories in 2015, and has run more than 12 million SDMA patient tests, creating the world’s largest database on kidney disease in dogs and cats. The IDEXX SDMA™ Test is a kidney test proven to identify kidney disease earlier than creatinine, enabling veterinarians to intervene earlier to meaningfully impact a patient’s health outcomes and quality of life.
SDMA is the subject of more than 30 ongoing research collaborations and has been incorporated into the veterinary profession’s International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) kidney disease staging guidelines.
Now, this test will be available in-house as well!
