The Target Canine progesterone test is a rapid 9 min blood test to determine progesterone levels based on visual color changes of the test cup from bright blue to white.
The test is based on ELISA principles where the sample and reagents are filtered through the antibody on the porous test cup. The accuracy of the test is based on a highly specific antibody which is trapped in the porous cup matrix.
The test detects the initial rise in progesterone to accurately predict ovulation in the bitch to determine optimal breeding dates.
The test detects a drop in progesterone at the end of the pregnancy to signal normal whelping within 24 hours to time a C-section accurately.
