Featured tests


Sarcoptes Antibody ELISA

Canine (code: 3538)

The Sarcoptes Antibody ELISA helps confirm or rule out a suspicion of sarcoptic mange in dogs based on clinical signs. The condition is currently diagnosed by skin scraping but most often confirmed through response to treatment.

Ringworm RealPCR Panel

Canine/Feline (code: 3565)

With the Ringworm RealPCR Panel, you get accurate results faster than the dermatophyte test media (DTM) plate. Results from this test are available in 1–3 working days.

Aller-g-detect Allergen Preliminary Panel

Canine/Feline (code: 3478)

Aller-g-detect Allergen Preliminary Panel provides a low-cost serum test that detects allergen-specific antibodies against four common allergen groups: mites/molds, grasses, weeds and trees. Use this panel to confirm if your patient is a good candidate for immunotherapy through IDEXX.

Allergen Panel (Standard Regional, Insect, Food, Farm & Stable)

Canine/Feline

Eight regionally specific panels ensure you are testing for only the most relevant allergens in your area and none that are not. Use this look-up tool to find the panel that is right for your region. We also offer allergen panels for insect, farm and stable, food and equine.
