In Hospital “SNAP test” Reader

Many animal hospitals use “SNAP” tests to test for infectious diseases that have antigens present or result in antibody production. These SNAP tests are judged to be positive or negative based on a color change read visually (kind of like a pregnancy test!). Galax Vet Clinic and Animal Medical Services both take this one step further by using a SNAPshot Dx Analyzer. This machine reads the test results for us at the appropriate time and automatically downloads them to the patient’s record. This automation reduces human error and provides your pet, once again, with state of the art technology.
