Blood Testing Laboratory
Our in house laboratory is the cornerstone of our diagnostic service. Being able to evaluate a blood sample from an unwell patient is essential. To be able to do this immediately whether it is in the evening, weekend, just prior to surgery or in an acutely sick patient is something we could not do without.
At East Coast Bays Veterinary Clinic we were one of the first Clinics to adopt an in house laboratory service. We have taken this a step further with a major upgrade to a full set of the latest technology from IDEXX Laboratories. IDEXX Vetlab In House Analysers (www.IDEXX.com). In fact we were the first Veterinary Clinic in New Zealand to be able to offer this quality of care to our clients.
With the Catalyst Dx and Procyte Dx providing the highest standard of equipment available we virtually have a reference laboratory in our clinic. We can also provide an extensive array of tests beyond the standard biochemistry and haematology including electrolyres, hormones and coagulation panels.
Real time healthcare
Your pets blood sample can literally be taken and analysed within minutes while you are still with us at the Clinic. The results are instantly added to your pets clinical record and sent online to cloud software where we can review them with you on an ipad or computer screen. The results can be emailed to you immediately for your records with important trend graphs of any previous tests and our comments.
No more anxious waiting for answers and delaying treatment while blood samples deteriorate in a courier van on there way to an outside laboratory with results arriving late in the day when it may be too late to start therapy.
