Hypocalcemia is a prevalent condition among dairy cows during lactation onset, characterized by a decrease in blood calcium levels below the normal range. Affected cows may exhibit symptoms, known as clinical hypocalcemia or milk fever, or may remain asymptomatic, termed subclinical hypocalcemia. Ionized calcium (iCa) represents the physiologically active form of calcium in the bloodstream, providing a more accurate reflection of the current blood calcium status compared to total blood calcium, as it measures the freely available calcium ions. Direct cow-side measurement of ionized calcium levels in blood samples allows for prompt treatment initiation in dairy cows, thus preventing debilitating symptoms or complications. The newly developed LAQUAtwin Ca-11C is specifically designed for cow-side measurement of ionized calcium in blood, making it an ideal tool for screening dairy cows for hypocalcemia.
