ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / September 13, 2022 / Zomedica Corp. (NYSE American:ZOM) ("Zomedica" or the "Company"), a veterinary health company offering novel diagnostic and therapeutic products for companion animals, today announced the commercial launch of its newest assay - Free T4 (fT4) - for the TRUFORMA In-Clinic Biosensor Testing Platform.
"The proprietary point-of-care TRUFORMA free T4 assay brings a valuable diagnostic tool into the veterinary clinic for the first time," said Larry Heaton, Zomedica's Chief Executive Officer. "This new assay for the TRUFORMA instrument is an example of Zomedica's ongoing commitment to meet the needs of clinical veterinarians in ways that promote both patient and practice health."
Accurately diagnosing thyroid dysfunction can be a challenge in veterinary practice. Measurement of serum tT4, fT4, and TSH concentrations is currently recommended for the assessment of canine thyroid gland function. However, until now, practitioners have been limited to obtaining reliable fT4 results only from the reference laboratory. The in-clinic TRUFORMA free T4 assay, along with tT4 and TSH, brings the capability to deliver this valuable diagnostic panel directly to the point of care while preventing falsely elevated fT4 concentrations due to sample heating during transport to the reference laboratory. The TRUFORMA panel of thyroid assays - total-T4, TSH, and now free-T4 - offers veterinarians accurate, reliable, and precise results to achieve a more timely, definitive differentiation between healthy dogs and those with thyroid disease, thus allowing for faster diagnosis and treatment.
"I find the Free T4 measurement to be a straight-forward diagnostic test useful for accurately identifying thyroid conditions in dogs. I'm thrilled for the ability to run this test in-clinic in order to facilitate earlier patient treatment and same visit communications with clients" said Lauren Kappers, DVM.
The TRUFORMA fT4 assay is available for shipping September 12, 2022, directly from Zomedica.
