Through innovation and strategic partnerships with leading veterinary laboratories worldwide, Heska AG provides the benefits of latest generation technologies for allergy detection and specific treatments to healthcare providers and pet owners.
Based on the Fc-epsilon receptor technology (ALLERCEPT), Heska AG adapts the composition of the allergen panels to satisfy all market needs.
Heska ALLERCEPT – Allergy and Receptor are at the origin of the ALLERCEPT brand name. ALLERCEPT is the generic name for all specific IgE testing systems.
Heska Immucept – Immunology and Receptor is at the origin of the Immucept brand name. Immucept is used for all allergen specific immunotherapy treatments.
Heska VDL – Accounts for Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. Based in Switzerland, Heska AG VDL provides sourced allergy testing to veterinary laboratories.
Heska CHO test – An Fc-epsilon receptor based test to determine the presence of IgE anti-CCD.
(CCD = cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants).
Heska FRT (Food Reaction Test)– A test to assess adverse food reactions in dogs and cats.
Heska Feline Hydrogel system – Feline IgE require special testing conditions for accurate and reproducible measurements. The Hydrogel system allows detecting minute amount of Feline allergen specific IgE in the ALLERCEPT test.
Heska Canine Total IgE – A quantitative test based on the Fc-epsilon receptor technology to measure total IgE in canine serum.
Heska introduced a major development in the veterinary allergy testing in 1997; the Fc-epsilon
receptor technology. This technology remains still today unsurpassed. As a result, numerous clinicians, patients and pet owners benefit from this leading technology.
We are continuously improving this technology to increase the accuracy and precision of allergen specific IgE detection. We also support clinicians and investigators providing support in their research studies.
Heska AG has operated in the veterinary allergy market for more than 30 years. We have built a strong reputation among reference veterinary testing laboratories, dermatologists, clinicians, opinion leaders and investigators.
