1. If Stored In A Refrigerator, Allow All Components To Equilibrate At Room Temperature (18-25°c) For 30 Minutes. Do Not Heat.
6. When color first appears in the activation circle, push the activator firmly Until It Is Flush With The Device Body.
Any color development in the sample spots indicates the presence of heartworm antigen, A. phagocytophilum antibody, B. burgdorferi antibody or E. canis antibody in the sample.
Initial research data suggests the SNAP 4Dx Anaplasma phagocytophilum spot could cross react with Anaplasma platys. In studies involving dogs infected with a laboratory strain of A. platys, the SNAP 4Dx was reactive with serum from 10 out of 10 infected animals.
Only positive control spot develops color.
- Background-if the sample is allowed to flow past the activation circle, background color may result. some background color is normal. however, if colored background obscures the test result, repeat the test.
- No Color Development-if the positive control does not develop color, repeat the test.
