Questions and Answers about the SNAP® TRIO JAPAN Test


Note: The IDEXX SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test is only available in Japan.

What is the difference between the SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test and other IDEXX SNAP® tests?

The SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test contains a proprietary reformulated conjugate pellet that accurately and reliably detects beta-lactam, tetracycline, and pirlimycine antibiotic residues without heat or incubation, allowing you to test cold milk directly from the truck, refrigerator or bulk tank. The SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test performance has been validated by internal validation.


How long does it take to run a SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test?

The SNAP TRIO JAPAN Test is completed in 8 minutes.


What happens if I use a heater block?

To achieve optimal results close to the Maximum Residue Limits, using a heater block is not recommended. If a heater block is used by mistake, follow the prescribed protocol to retest the sample without the heater block.


Can tests be returned to the refrigerator if not used that day?

Tests that were taken out of refrigeration to be used during the day may be returned to refrigeration as long as the room temperature during the day did not exceed 30°C.


Must the SNAP device be on a level surface to run properly?

For optimal results, run the test on a flat, level surface.


How should I store my SNAP tests?

Refrigerate all SNAP test materials at 2–8°C (36–46°F). Tests can be kept at 15–30°C (59–86°F) during the day of use. Check labeling for test-specific instructions. Remove only the number of tests to be used for the day.


Do SNAP tests need to be brought to room temperature before testing?

Yes. Bring the tests to room temperature before use.


How important is the activation time of the SNAP test?

After the reagent pellet has dissolved, pour the entire contents of the sample tube into the sample well of the SNAP device. Remain with the device and watch the sample flow across the results window toward the blue activation circle. When the blue activation circle begins to disappear, press the activator firmly until the device “snaps” and the activator is flush with the body of the SNAP device. Activate (snap) the device when the edge of the circle nearest the sample begins to turn from dark blue to white. Do not let the circle completely disappear.
