Equine Quick P4 Progesterone Refill Kit
Quick P4 Equine is the beginning of a Revolution in On-site Progesterone Analysis for Equines.
A Diagnostic Cube Reader Machine is programmed with sophisticated calculations (similar to those used in Automated Radio-Immuno Assay Machines).
√ Progesterone Numbers (ng/mL) for Equine Sera in 15 minutes.
√ Room Temperature Stable
√ Shelf Life 1-2 yrs
√ Quick P4 measures only progesterone ( & NOT any synthetic progesterone Regumate).
√ Avoid excess Regumate Supplementation - by knowing the Progesterone
To maintain a healthy pregnancy, ~ 4+ ng/ml progesterone is required. Measuring progesterone helps determine where the mare is in her cycle and allows planning most effective reproductive program.
Knowing the progesterone number allows
√ Diagnosis of a functional or persistent corpus luteum (CL)
√ Effective use of prostaglandin or progesterone treatment
√ Monitoring the progesterone during pregnancy
For the ~ first 90 days of the pregnancy, progesterone is produced by the CL (corpus luteum) in the ovary. Later in the pregnancy progesterone is produced from the placenta.
