V-Pet™, distributed by Equine Partners America, is a portable kit that makes the harvesting, filtration and injection of a horse's own platelet-rich plasma extremely easy and maximally effective. Made in America by Pall Corporation, V-PET™ achieves the three key factors of successful platelet therapy.
Provides the veterinarian harvested, expanded and cultured bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. The cells are authenticated by the laboratory as to their cell type and quantity, then delivered to the clinic for implantation into the donor horse..
HYVET™is a single injection treatment to replace synovial fluid, viscosupplementation. It is based on a natural, safe and proven technology (cross-linked hyaluronic acid). Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule that provides lubrication and shock absorbing effects in a joint. HYVET is a transparent gel which contains very high levels of HA. When injected in joints drained by surgery it directly relieves pain, restores lubrication and shock absorbing effects which improves joint function.
Inflammation detection made easy! EquiChek™ uses a novel competitive assay format to detect SAA in whole blood. The test delivers a semi-quantitative visual readout to help distinguish between normal and mild to clinically significant inflammation. The test is based on competition between SAA present in a sample and SAA printed onto the test strip with antibody coated gold nanoparticles. Unlike other tests EquiChek is not affected by the high dose hook effect.
EC-ACS™ is a blood product containing concentrated amounts of an antiinflammatory protein called interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein (IL-1Ra). It is most commonly used to treat the early stages of osteoarthritis. IL-1Ra counteracts the destructive effects of inflammatory proteins, such as IL-1β, within the inflamed joint.
