Armed with no antibodies, foals are naturally at risk for infection and disease. Immunoglobulin (IgG) testing is used to quickly and accurately detect low IgG levels in order to immediately begin treatment of immunodeficient foals before serious complications arise. TargetVet's Immuno-Chek G™ testing is more sensitive and accurate than SNAP testing and results are easier to read.

Add 10 µL whole blood (or 5µL sera) to a dilution bottle and mix.
With new tip add 10 µL from the diluted sample in the dilution bottle to the cassette.
Add 3 drops from buffer B bottle.
Wait 10 minutes.
Cassette Visual result
By examining the line intensities one can determine the need for supplementation. When test line intensity is much greater than control line intensity, this indicates a very good transfer (> 800 mg/dl). When the test and control lines have similar intensities, this indicates a partial failure (400 mg/dl). A weak test line compared to the control line indicates a total failure (200 mg/dl).
Cube reader result
The Equine Cube Reader generates a numerical value result (in mg/dl) by interpreting the line intensities based on an internal standard curve.
