Until now, the only accurate method of determining bacteriuria was by urine culture - an expensive and time-consuming test performed at specialised laboratories. With RapidBac Vet, you can test immediately in-practice and then treatment is possible within 20 minutes.
Simple Test Procedure
- Remove contents from pouch
- Add Assay Buffer to test vial
- After 2 minutes add the urine sample and mix gently
- Place the test strip into the test vial with arrows pointing down
- Leave for 10 minutes, then remove test strip from vial and read results
Any colour development at Line 1 or Line 2 indicates the presence of bacteria in the sample.
- If both line 1 and line 2 are present, a gram-negative organism has been detected
- If line 2 is present and line 1 is absent then a gram-positive organism has likely been detected
If only the Control Line develops colour - no bacteria detected
If the Control Line does not develop colour, the result is invalid - Repeat test
