Feline Blood Typing

Alvedia feline blood typing tests are easy-to-use in-clinic tests designed to determine the major immunoreactive blood types of cats. The tests use immunochromatography and the A and B blood group antigens (cat). These tests can be performed with as little as one mL of blood with results obtained within three minutes. Knowing the blood type of donors and recipients is important in transfusion medicine, in particular in cats where a mismatched blood transfusion can cause rapid death. Feline blood typing tests are available individually (QuickTest) or in a pack of 20 (LabTest).
