Orlando, Florida, June 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – NAVC Veterinary Conference and Expo (VMX) Booth #1026 — June 6, 2021—Today, Antech Diagnostics announced a number of new data and innovations in core diagnostic tests to help veterinarians find diseases faster and more effectively than traditional diagnostics. Published data, field data, and technological advancements that are consistent with the KOL guidelines show the value of continuous improvement of diagnostic methods for veterinarians seeking innovative methods to restore their pets to health as quickly as possible.
In its face-to-face and virtual booths, Antech will highlight several key advances in its new diagnostic tests, especially RenalTech™, which can predict the onset of chronic kidney disease in cats for up to 2 years; Canine CE-IBD test, the first for veterinarians Non-invasive blood test for canine chronic bowel disease/inflammatory bowel disease (CE/IBD); this Firstract™ urine culture test, the first automated test that provides fast and reliable urine culture results for cats and dogs; Accuplex is a C6-carried canine vector-borne disease screening, in line with the American Academy of Veterinary Medicine (ACVIM) Lime Disease consensus guidelines.
Data milestones and technological advancements include:
New data shows that RenalTech inspires more veterinary visits and better cat preventive care
RenalTech™ uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict whether a cat will develop chronic kidney disease (CKD) up to 2 years before diagnosis, with an accuracy rate of over 95%. One third of cats will develop CKD. When the early care strategy is most likely to succeed, the early warning of the disease enables the veterinarian to actively treat the disease. Now, data from a retrospective review of 730,000 veterinary visits shows that after RenalTech’s results were positive, RenalTech also increased the number of veterinary visits by 31%, thereby improving preventive care opportunities for cats. Pet owners also purchase early interventions related to CKD, including food and medication. These new data prove the value of RenalTech in the practice of seeking to improve overall feline health, and also have a positive impact on the health of cats facing CKD.

New data shows that canine CE-IBD testing is valuable as a first-line diagnostic test and monitoring tool
A kind May 7, 2021, Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine Research The diagnostic and monitoring value of the canine CE-IBD test is verified. This is the first non-invasive blood test for canine chronic bowel disease/inflammatory bowel disease (CE/IBD) by a veterinarian. This study demonstrates the value of the test as a first-line screening tool for all dogs with chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and a monitoring tool for evaluating CE/IBD dogs’ response to treatment. This is the second new test study released by JVIM, showing that Antech is committed to verifying that its new diagnostic method can be used in new methods for different populations, enabling the veterinary team to help more and more pets recover faster.

FirstThe ract™ urine culture test helps veterinarians use urine culture results to support One Health in hours and days
The first automated rapid urine culture for cats and dogs provides veterinarians with a new way to quickly and appropriately prescribe antibiotics for urinary tract infections (UTI). Although UTI is one of the main reasons for prescribing antibiotics, data shows that 40% of prescriptions are made without evidence of infection.This FirstThe ract urine culture test can confirm the presence or absence of bacteria within 24 hours, support rapid and effective treatment of pets, and allow veterinarians to adhere to their commitment to good antibiotic management, which is a key One Health principle.
