Image description

In the idea to bring better support to our customers in the international market, Bioguard is to upgrade its GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) to the human level, since there is no regulation for veterinary diagnostic kits in Taiwan, thus, the Taiwanese government does not issue any official GMP for Veterinary diagnostic kits.

We’re already operating as a GMP level for the production of our diagnostic kits, but since GMP certificate is unobtainable in Taiwan, with the urge of this approval in the market. we’ve found it very important to obtain the GMP certificate approval in order to bring better support to our customers and especially to overcome the strict regulation countries barrier that we’ve encountered in the market. with the focus on this project we expected to get the approved certificate at the beginnining of the 

3rd quarter of this year.” Mentioned Mr. Edward Lai, President of Bioguard Corporation.

AAFP Bans Elective Onychectomy at Cat-Friendly Practices
Image description

The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) has announced an update for all designated Cat-Friendly Practices (CFPs): Elective feline onychectomy procedures are no longer allowed at these hospitals.

The policy change aligns with the association’s2017 statement that strongly opposes onychectomy as an elective procedure. The ethically controversial procedure is rarely medically necessary and is already banned in many areas.The update went into effect on January 1, 2021, for all new CFP locations in North, Central, and South America. Going forward, it will also be standard in all practices seeking CFP designation. Current CFPs that continue to offer elective declawing procedures after July 1, 2021, will maintain AAFP membership but may not use the CFP designation.

The AAFP and International Society of Feline Medicine established the CFP program in 2012 as a global initiative to help make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their owners.

Bioguard Feline Blood Typing Test is Based on Agglutination Reaction not in Antigen-Antibody Reaction
Image description

The blood types of cats are composed of mainly A, B, and AB. Type A is the most common, type B is rarer, and type AB is rarest. Type A erythrocytes express N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc), type B erythrocytes express N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) and type AB erythrocytes express both Neu5Gc and Neu5Ac. Instead of using antigen-antibody reaction for feline blood typing via monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies recognizing the antigens on erythrocytes, Bioguard’s “Feline 

Blood Typing Kit” is based on the agglutination reaction that occurs when the blood sample interacts with the agglutinin/lectin in the test windows.
