Canine CRP at AACC 2023

Learn more about Gentian's turbidimetric canine CRP at booth #1110

For its seventh consecutive year, Gentian Diagnostics will be participating in the AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo promoting our automated canine CRP immunoassay. Visit us at booth #1110 to learn more.


Inflammation in dogs - early and rapid detection with CRP

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an inflammation marker in canine serum and plasma, important in diagnosis of infections and inflammatory conditions such as gastrointestinal diseases, surgical trauma, autoimmune diseases and neoplasia1. As a major acute phase protein, CRP levels can quickly rise to more than 100 times its original concentration, with significant changes detectable after just 4-6 h2,3. Due to its short half-life, CRP can also be analysed to monitor disease development and treatment efficacy4.

Early detection of canine CRP allows for precise diagnosis and quick individualised patient decisions, enabling reduced care time and improved patient outcomes.


Canine CRP test


Canine CRP continuously available since 2013

The Gentian Canine CRP Immunoassay is an open channel turbidimetric assay for quantitative determination of canine CRP in dog plasma and serum on clinical chemistry instruments already present in the lab. The assay has been developed by utilising canine-specific antibodies from avian origin which minimises batch variation and interference with mammalian factors.

The open channel assay can be applied on a wide range of automated clinical chemistry analysers.

Why Gentian Canine CRP Immunoassay?

  • Canine-specific antibodies ensure consistent specificity to the canine CRP antigen
  • Avian origin of antibodies contributes to reduced interference
  • Instrument-independent and validated on a wide range of clinical analysers
