“The assay was unique in its ability to measure SAA concentrations with acceptable reliability over an extreme concentration range. This is relevant in the equine species, where SAA concentrations may reach very high concentrations” (Jacobsen et al. 2019).

“Reference laboratory testing for APPs allows for accurate measurement of SAA and CRP ... Additional studies may show that APPs can have value in the diagnosis and prognosis of diseases in rabbits.” (Lennox et al. 2020)
