|Simi Valley, CA- Mar 3, 2014- VDI Laboratory has announced that as of April 1st, a name change will take effect for two of their laboratory services. Formerly known as VDI-TKcanine+ and VDI-TKfeline+, two of the lab's specialty cancer blood tests, the new test names will be TKCANINE CANCER PANEL and TKFELINE CANCER PANEL.
"This change reflects VDI's emphasis on providing specialty diagnostic tests specifically designed for the purpose they serve," notes Randy Ringold, President of VDI. "While Thymidine Kinase, or TK, is the principal biomarker, the tests are dual-biomarker panels intended for the diagnosis and management of cancer in cats and dogs."
"The new names emphasize the three most important aspects of the service: principle biomarker, intended purpose, and a reminder of the added value that these are test panels consisting of more than one test result," says Ringold.
