Evaluation of an automated spectrophotometric assay for the determination of total sialic acid in canine serum



Evaluation of an automated spectrophotometric assay for the determination of total sialic acid in canine serum



Veterinary Research Communications 18(5): 337-345



This study validates an automated enzymatic assay using the Cobas Fara (Roche) centrifugal analyzer, which offers a reliable measurement of the total sialic acid concentration in canine serum as assessed by evaluating the precision and accuracy. Data are presented on the biological variation in the total serum sialic acid concentration. Measurements of total serum sialic acid concentration appear to be useful in distinguishing dogs with neoplastic disorders from clinically healthy dogs.
