The new Catalyst SDMA Test

Get the accurate results you trust in fewer steps

It’s easier than ever to run the Catalyst SDMA Test with every chemistry profile.

The Catalyst SDMA Test you rely on to assess kidney function just got even easier to use. By removing the cup and bringing the reagent into the slide, we’ve reduced the number of steps and streamlined the process. Get results faster and hear everything your patients’ kidneys have to say.

What’s changed

  • Convenient storage: Now in the freezer, making it easier to grab and go when getting other Catalyst slides.
  • Simpler workflow and faster results: No more reagent cups. Now that the reagent has been incorporated into the slide, you can simply add the slide to your chemistry run for faster results.
  • New product numbers: Go to provet.co.nz to see all the ways to order SDMA with your other chemistries.
  • Ordering kits: Ordering kits: The Catalyst SDMA and Total T4 Kit will be discontinued, but the tests can still be purchased separately.

What’s staying the same?

  • The industry-leading, reliable accuracy you’ve come to expect so you can gain deeper insights into kidney function.
  • Ordering convenience: SDMA can still be ordered at provet.co.nz — get everything you need in one click.
  • Flexibility to add to any profile in any order.
  • Same quantity, less bulk: You’ll still get 12 tests per box, but smaller packaging means easier storage and less waste.

Yes, with the Catalyst One Chemistry Analyser, the test can be run alone or with other slides as part of a comprehensive patient profile.

For example, you could run a Catalyst Lyte 4 CLIP, a Catalyst Chem 17 CLIP, a Catalyst Total T4 Test and a Catalyst SDMA Test with one patient sample.

With the Catalyst Dx Chemistry Analyser, the test can be run with all chemistry/electrolyte slides and/or CLIPs.

No, the Catalyst SDMA and Total T4 Kit will be discontinued, but the tests can still be purchased separately. Running SDMA and total T4 together will continue to require 2 slides and a conjugate cup.
