RapidBac™ VET is the first and only rapid test kit for the direct detection of bacteria in urine.

In clinical studies comparing RapidBac™ VET results with urine culture on canine urine samples, RapidBac™ VET was shown to have a sensitivity of > 97% and a specificity of 99%.

Add this kit to your in-house testing armoury for accurate and immediate detection of bacteria in DOGS and CATS!

RapidBac™-Vet: What Dr Kim Kendall says….

“I have recently been introduced to the RapidBacVet kits.  I have been struggling to identify urinary tract infections in cats for some time, particularly in samples that may arrive via the tabletop and cannot, therefore, be sent for culture.  

…This little kit can demonstrate whether a significant bacteriuria exists in 20 minutes.  

…You can then struggle for a cystocentesis sample for C&S or treat empirically, knowing that there really is something there to worry about. Easy to do, useful information and contributing to rational antibiotic use, AND economical PLUS room temperature storage.  Ticks all the boxes.”

– Dr Kim Kendall, The Chatswood Cat Palace, NSW – Jan 2017
