YES and NO. Let me explain! What most folks do not know is that all progesterone testing systems in vet labs, Immulite 1000, Mini Vidas, and many other systems will run the same Progesterone sample and come up with very different results. THIS IS EXPECTED! Is this a problem? NO, and here is why.
Some systems are florescent and some are chemiluminescence and others use a photometer. The method of measurement (and the reagents) are very different hence we get different numbers on the same sample running on the two types of analyzers.
The V200 Bionote has been correlated to the Immulite 1000 which is the reference method for the highest national know outside labs.
The calibration of the V200 Bionote is easy and takes only 2 min using the calibration kit that comes with your unit. The V200 Bionote will print off the interpretation ranges for you after each test is run.
Example: if you go to your vet and they are running the veterinarian's preferred system then you have your test run on a Mini Vidas you will see very different results that may cause you to get your timing solution's wrong if you don't adjust for the method differences. This is very easily done with no pain or effort. We have you covered with the built-in interpretation ranges that will print for you after every test.
