Moichor's Mission to Build a Better Reference Interval Library
Every journey requires a good map, but right now veterinarians are setting out on health expeditions without all the data to successfully complete the road to better animal health. We go into depth about how Moichor is making modern reference intervals as part of our goal to better equip veterinarians on their journeys.
Aspartate aminotransferase is included in all of our chemistry panels, and it can be a tricky analyte to interpret at times. Elevations in AST can mean many things, so read on to learn more about interpreting it in the context of the patient.
Veterinary PCR testing: A Non-invasive Animal Diagnostic Option
Despite improving morbidity and mortality rates of patients under anesthesia, the procedure is often a common barrier. A potential alternative for veterinarians could be PCR testing as it is less invasive but still has the potential to provide an accurate diagnosis.
Creatine kinase (CK) can be used to determine if elevations in AST are of muscular or hepatic origin, and in this article we discuss how CK can act as a sole indicator of diseases resulting in muscle damage.
