Clinical Pathology

At Swanbourne Veterinary Centre, we are well equipped with a full clinical pathology laboratory, enabling us to run in-house blood testing, urine testing and cytology testing.

We have recently upgraded our diagnostic laboratory to the Idexx Catalyst Dx, which utilises “gold standard” dry slide technology to deliver faster results with less hands on time whilst providing complete testing flexibility.  The Catalyst Dx is the first analyser of it’s kind in the veterinary market and can run multiple samples simultaneously, as well as offering 28 chemistries including phenobarb and fructosamine.

The Idexx Procyte Dx is the latest addition to the Idexx Vet Lab Suite and provides an advanced five-part white blood cell differential and reticulocyte count along with validated results on 24 different blood parameters.

 

All our team members are well drilled in operating the equipment.  This means there is very little waiting time after samples are taken and the appropriate treatment can commence often within the hour.

We also have an in-house microscope with wifi camera which we can look at blood, ear, lump and other bodily samples.  Our vets are well trained in this field of diagnosis, and we also have a specialistpathologist readily available to assist in the diagnostic process.
