Lactate testing in the veterinary field works in a very similar way to the human application. Lactate measurements are carried out to determine the performance of racing animals like horses or dogs, to monitor organ dysfunction, inflammatory processes in critically ill animals or in a multitude of basic research applications.
EKF's lactate analyzers, Biosen and Lactate Scout+, meet the demands of veterinary. A wide measurement range covers the typical values of different species. E.g. racing horses have a very high 'maxlass' (being the highest stable or balanced lactate level during exercise) of above 20 mmol/L, a level at which both devices deliver accurate results.
