Detects DEA 1 blood group (DEA 1.1 & DEA 1.2) in dogs, A & B blood groups in cats.
Following the example of human surgical and medical progress, achieved thanks to transfusion, progress in veterinary surgery and medicine is going to be achieved thanks to an effective and reliable Lab Test.
Determining blood types represents an essential process in order to ensure animals benefit from transfusion support. Nowadays, a dog or a cat has a significant probability of being transfused once or more in their lifetime. Basic blood typing is essential to perform these first and subsequent transfusions as safely as possible.
That’s why Alvedia has focused research on a better knowledge of blood typing in dogs and cats. We are now proud to enable the veterinary community to benefit from its latest project by putting at their disposal typing systems based on an innovative Immuno-Chromatography membrane. These systems have been trialled and are now used by veterinary universities and veterinary professionals wordwide.
Importance of blood typing
Transfusion has taken an increasingly important role in the life support of canine and feline patients. Thus, the need for quick and accurate blood typing has now been recognized in order to assure safe and efficient transfusion.
It is now essential to perform blood typing to save animal lives in case of :
- Traumatic shock
- Some infectious diseases
- Surgical procedures
- Iron deficiency
- Severe anemia
- Spleen injury
- Acute hemolysis syndrome
- Severe bleeding after diseases and shocks
The determination of DEA 1 antigen is strongly recommended before any blood transfusion to avoid a potent alloantibody response against this antigen and to avoid acute haemolytic tranfusion reaction.
The presence of naturally occurring allo antibodies in type A and in type B cats requires that blood typing must be performed prior to blood transfusion to avoid acute haemolytic transfusion reaction, and in breedings to prevent neonatal isoerythrolysis. Blood can be taken directly from the umbilical cord.

THE LAB TEST BT PROCEDURE
Same procedure for feline and canine Lab Test bt
CAT A GROUP : Presence of red line in front of "A" arrow indicates a positive reaction for A group.
CAT AB GROUP : Presence of 2 red lines in front of "A" and "B" arrow indicates a positive reaction for both A and B group.
CAT B GROUP : Presence of a red line in front of "B" arrow indicates a positive reaction for B group.
DOG DEA 1 + :Presence of red line in front of «DEA 1» arrow indicates a positive reaction.
DOG DEA 1 WEAK + :Presence of a weak red line in front of «DEA 1» arrow indicates a positive reaction. A weak DEA 1 positive dog = dea 1.2 positive dog (see scientific information).
DOG DEA 1 - : Absence of red line in front of «DEA 1» arrow indicates a negative reaction.
