WHY PROGESTERONE

Determination of progesterone is very important in many aspects of a mare’s reproductive cycle – in maintaining pregnancy, determining where the mare is in the cycle, embryo viability … and more.

Because of the delay and difficulty in getting accurate progesterone results from a laboratory, equine practitioners have used extensive progesterone supplementation rather than planning actions based on knowledge of actual progesterone levels present.

  • Lateral Flow test has 2 specific Monoclonal antibodies to bind P4 in a sandwich assay.
  • RIA Lab tests use a single polyclonal antibody to bind P4 - in competitive assay - this results in less specific binding
  • RIA lab results may give higher progesterone values which include both progesterone and progesterone metabolites.
