PortaCheck announces new IgGCheck Foal Passive Transfer Test

Moorestown, NJ (January 2018) - In their first entry into the equine care industry, PortaCheck has added a new on-farm passive transfer test called IgGCheck for foals to their product line.

"Monitoring levels of immunoglobulins (IgG) in newborn foals is key to ensuring they have received adequate transfer of antibodies from colostrum. Getting accurate foal-side results in 10 minutes can make the difference in the animal's long-term health," said Mike Gavin, president of PortaCheck.

PortaCheck has become an on-farm testing leader with a full product line that assists producers in making management decisions and improving animal health. The company also provides the BHBCheck blood ketone test, the PortaCheck Rainbow Scours test, UdderCheckTM sub-clinical mastitis test, the PortaBHB® milk ketone test and the PortaSCC® milk test for dairy cattle and goats.
