CIPA Assay Usage In Studies

The CIPA assay is the standard of all medical equipment used in testing for the clinical use of canine cardiovascular and orthopedic systems. This is the standardized form of testing performed on dogs to detect contractility deformity of skeletal systems. Contractility refers to the ability of the skeletal system to rotate and stretch in response to external load. In the case of canine cardiovascular and orthopedic systems, the response of these skeletal components to mechanical stress can provide valuable information about cardiac function and disease. In addition, CIPA testing provides valuable information about organ function and the effect of disease on the nervous system.

Types Of Tests Used

There are three major categories of test animals used in CIPA assays: …
