Hurtig screening for hypocalcæmi i køers blod
#UK: Hypocalcemia, characterized by decrease in blood calcium below normal level, is one of the most common disorders affecting dairy cows at the onset of lactation. Among the three forms of calcium in blood, the ionized calcium (iCa) is the physiologically active. To help dairy farmers and veterinarians measure iCa in cows’ blood samples immediately after collection on farms, HORIBA developed and introduced the LAQUAtwin Ca-11C bovine blood calcium meter equipped with a replaceable calcium sensor. It can serve as screening device for detection of hypocalcemia in cows. With its low cost and rapid blood iCa analysis, the meter is ideal for individual animal and herd-level monitoring on farms.
