Hypothyroidism is one of the most common endocrine disorders in dogs. The diagnosis is carried out based on both clinical signs and various diagnostic tests. While total and free T4 tests are the most common tests undertaken, it is considered that these should be combined with measurements of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in order to reliably evaluate canine thyroid function.
We provide three monoclonal antibodies that enable the development of sensitive and specific canine
TSH immunoassays. These MAbs recognize native canine TSH in serum samples. Pair recommendations are set out in the Canine TSH TechNotes (see below).
Furthermore, we provide a recombinant canine TSH. This protein has been produced in a mammalian cell line and it does not contain any tags. It can be used as a calibrator in canine TSH immunoassays.

Please note: Several MAbs are available under one catalogue number. Only a subset of them are specific to canine TSH.
