In general, the vast majority of veterinary clinics for their daily use will not need a CombScan. The CombScan is ideal for clinics that are, let’s say, carrying out 12 or more tests per day or large vet labs that want a more objective technique to read test results.
In high volume vet labs or in clinical trial use, CombScan can prove to be very useful.
Read below what researchers have written about CombScan:
“In a previous study, the spots were read by eye, but in this study they were read using a scanner (Epson 4000), which increased the precision of the tests, that is the repeatability of the results, as the analysis of scanned images is probably more reproducible and objective than a visual analysis that is operator dependent and may also suffer from variables (eg, sources of light).”
