The easy saliva collection device offers non-invasive sampling of saliva by a veterinary clinic or pet owner— this is a patented test. Positive results occur with inflammation, infections, obesity and cancers (dysbiosis). Functional beneficial foods and supplements are given to re-balance the Microbiome and restore health
Choose from our four kits above. All orders can be placed online
Follow the instructions inside the kit and have your pet chew on the rope provided.
Once your results are in you will be able to pick the proper nutritions for your fur baby.
Nutrition consultation available after reviewing NutriScan results!
“D.D.”, Shetland Sheepdog, MN, 4 yrs old, 20 lbs. History of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), food intolerances and patchy hair loss with dry, dull haircoat. Reactive to 19 of 24 foods on Nutriscan testing in early 2021; these foods were removed from his diet. The CellBIO isoprostane concentration at that time was elevated at 2.11 ng/ml, indicating that he was experiencing increased cellular oxidative stress (OS). [Our established normal range is 0. 5-1.75 ng/ml]. He also tested positive for heritable autoimmune thyroiditis and related hypothyroidism, a condition quite prevalent in this breed. After being placed on thyroxine therapy twice daily, his thyroid dysfunction has resolved.
He was placed on CellBIO supplements for OS and retesting 2 months later showed a normal CellBIO level of 0.70 ng/ml. This past fall, Nutriscan resting showed no reactive foods among the 24 foods tested. A “happy camper“ now, he continues on the Nutriscan restricted diet and CellBIO Super6 supplement.
“L.R.”, Swiss Herding Dog, FS, 3.75 yrs old, 32 lbs. History of bowel issues and severe uveitis and related eye problems; and sadly is now blind. Food intolerances were identified in spring 2020 and again in early 2021. These foods have been eliminated from her diet. CellBIO was 2.0 ng/ml in 2020 and now 1.28 ng/ml, which is normal after CellBIO Super6 supplementation. Another CellBIO test is pending receipt of a new saliva sample.
“E.E.”, Old English Sheepdog, FS, ~ 12 yrs old, 80 lb. Healthy overall and active. Testing CellBIO was for background check only. In summer 2019, CellBIO level was 2.40 ng/ml, them in early 2020 it had climbed to 3.35 ng/ml/ CellBIO supplement was started and follow up testing levels were 1.13 ng/.ml and 1.30 ng/ml 6 months later and now are 0.70 ng/ml. She remains on the supplement.
“L.H.”, Tibetan Spaniel, M, 3.5 yrs old, 15 lbs. Has been healthy but recently has been howling and barking when left alone even with spouse at home. Red color between foot pads and soft stool, lip smacking, stomach gurling, licking nose. Good appetite but stressed, Still needs vet clinic examination with blood and urine testing. CellBIO run in fall 2021 was very high (4.15 ng/ml) , although Nutriscan test showed him only reactive to Cow Milk, . After CellBIO supplement use, early 2022 retest was very good at 0.7 ng/ml. CellBIO supplement will be continued.
Depending on your policy, most pet insurance companies cover not only routine checkups, but also emergency care, prescriptions, treatment and diagnostic testing such as CellBIO. Please check with your insurance provider or seek out health insurance for your companion pet.
CellBIO is the only clinically predictable diagnostic test for dogs to identify the presence of or predisposition to the oxidative stress damage to cells caused by inflammation, infection, obesity and cancer. The CellBIO test is patent protected.
This rapid, practical test uses saliva and currently measures the biolipid marker, isoprostane, that is released from damaged cells into the dog’s saliva. High isoprostane levels indicate that the cells of the dog have or are undergoing oxidative stress that forms free radicals called “reactive oxygen species”.
Yes, because saliva testing can reveal the latent or pre-clinical form of cellular oxidative stress damage.
Unlike Hemopet’s NutriScan test which does require strict overnight fasting, fasting is optional for the CellBIO test.
The test requires 0.5-1 ml of saliva so it can be run in duplicate. It is important to collect enough saliva.
Yes, about half of the length of the rope or the sample tube with the newer kits should be wet with saliva.
You can place a piece of tempting food in front of the pet’s nose to stimulate salivation, but don’t let him actually eat the treat.
Yes; please try to minimize any contamination.
No, room temperature is fine. Please do not freeze the saliva sample.
Salivary antigens are stable for up to 30 days after collection, and the rope can be re-hydrated in our lab with a small measured amount of saline, if needed.
The level of isoprostane in the saliva.
The normal or negative level is 0. 5-1.75 ng/mL.of saliva.
Anything greater than 1.75 ng/mL of saliva is considered to be elevated (positive). Levels as high as 3.94 ng/mL have been observed among the 338 samples tested to date (May 2020).
We suggest repeat testing every 12-18 months in healthy pets, and every 4-6 months in pet with cellular oxidative stress.
Yes, one or more assays will be added to this test once validated.
Please send back the sample within 10 days of collection. You can send the samples via FedEx, UPS or USPS Priority Mail. Return mailing to Hemopet needs to be in a protected package or envelope. No refrigeration is necessary, and the saliva sample is viable for up to 30 days; however we do recommend that the sample should arrive at Hemopet within 10 days of being taken.
