New Paper on Koala APPs

Congrats to our collaborators Drs. Thurber and Singleton for the recent publication of their study entitled, “Reference intervals for acute phase proteins for koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) at the San Diego Zoo”. Samples from this vulnerable species were used to validate assays for CRP, SAA, and haptoglobin and updated intervals were also calculated for protein electrophoresis.

These new tools may help in the diagnosis and future studies of infection and inflammation in animals under human care and in the wild.
