  • Includes the separation of the protein fractions albumin, alpha-, beta, gamma-globulins and the albumin-globulin ratio. The protein fractions are also represented in form of a graph.
  • Acute inflammation leads to an increase in the alpha- and/or beta-globulin fraction. Polyclonal hypergammaglobulinaemia is caused by infectious, immune-mediated or neoplastic diseases. Especially in case of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), the test is used to support the clinical suspicion.
  • Albumin, alpha- and beta-globulin fractions are lowered in case of severe liver diseases.
