Benefits

The only point-of-care test that measures feline lipase levels specific to the pancreas

The SNAP® fPL™ Test is a simple blood test that detects the level of pancreas-specific lipase to provide information about the health of your patient’s pancreas.

Proven
The SNAP fPL Test uses the same trusted technology found in the Spec fPL® Test, which was developed from the fPLI test in partnership with Drs. David A. Williams and Jörg M. Steiner at the Gastrointestinal Laboratory at Texas A&M University.

Accurate (based on the Spec fPL Test)
In a recent study presented at the ACVIM forum, the sensitivity of the Spec fPL assay for the diagnosis of pancreatitis was found to be 79% and the specificity for ruling out pancreatitis was 80%.1

In-house results
Provides an easy-to-read “normal” or “abnormal” semiquantitative result for pancreas-specific lipase levels in just 10 minutes.

Accuracy

Agreement with Spec fPL® Reference Method

A study was conducted to evaluate agreement between the SNAP fPL Test’s visual results and the Spec fPL Test’s quantitative results.

  • 92% agreement with Spec fPL normal results (≤3.5µg/L)
  • 82% agreement with Spec fPL elevated results (>3.5µg/L)*

Reference
* The SNAP fPL Test had a 96% agreement with Spec fPL consistent with pancreatitis results (≥5.4 µg/L)
