CentriVet Bovine Blood Ketone Test Strips


Analysis of blood BHBA (ß-hydroxybutyrate) levels is considered to be the gold standard method for ketosis testing in dairy cows1,2. Specifically calibrated for bovine blood, the CentriVet™ Blood Ketone Test Strips are suitable for measuring BHBA in whole blood.

    How it works

    The CentriVet Bovine Blood Ketone Test Strips are thin strips with a chemical reagent system which work with the CentriVet GK Blood Glucose & Ketone Meter to measure the blood β-Ketone (beta-hydroxybutyrate) concentration in whole blood. Blood is applied to the end tip of the test strip, and then automatically absorbed into the reaction cell where the reaction takes place. A transient electrical current is formed during the reaction and the blood β-Ketone concentration is calculated based on the electrical current detected by the meter, then the result is shown on the meter display. The meters are calibrated to display plasma equivalent results.
