New! EquiChek Serum Amyloid A Test
Catachem is pleased to announce its partnership with Accuplex in Ireland to distribute EquiChek, a Serum Amyloid A test for horses. The test is run in the stable, by the trailer, in the pasture or in the clinic. Easy-to-read lines indicate to the veterinarian whether systemic inflammation is present.

EquiChek can be used for purposes ranging from prepurchase exams to preparing for breeding. With EquiChek, veterinarians can get additional insight into a horse’s health status even before the animal presents signs of infection or inflammation.
