RapidVet-D uses a proprietary differential reaction substrate. It enables the target organisms to metabolize various nutrients and produce alkaline metabolic substances much faster than the Sabouraud or Taplin medium – typically within 4 days. It also more aggressively suppresses the metabolism of other organisms that would normally also cause the pH indicator to change color.

The length of time required for the target organisms to cause the color change is less than the length of time during which the growth of other organisms is suppressed. Thus, a color change, or absence thereof can statistically be considered an indication of the presence or absence of dermatophytes in the sample.

For use in the differential diagnosis of dermatological conditions in dogs, cats and rabbits, and in horses. The products are especially designed to provide a statistically significant indication of the involvement, or absence, of dermatophytes as a causal factor of the underlying condition. Methodology employs proprietary formulations designed for the detection of only those fungi that cause clinical complications in the noted animal species.
