Why Use Mail-In Ear Kits?

Obtain Re-Check Data

Provide the client a kit in conjunction with diagnosis so you can know the effectiveness of treatment.

Better Accuracy

Centralized lab testing is more reliable than running cytology in-house.

Cost Savings

If you have a small or mobile practice, our products may be the most cost effective option.

Ear Cytology with Reflex Culture & Sensitivity Kit

QSM offers mail-in test kits that will provide you and your client with cytology results within 24 hours of receiving the sample. If there are signs of infection on the cytology, C&S results for aerobic bacteria are available 4-5 days after we receive the sample.

This is the gold standard of care test that should be done to best diagnose and treat a bacterial ear infection (bacterial culture identification). Having these test results ready during the exam will help you diagnose the cause of the dog's symptoms. This is critical for antibiotic stewardship. That's why we are committed to producing the most accurate and convenient products possible.

2-Day Air return shipping is INCLUDED in the price. Each kit can only be used to test ONE ear. The kit includes 2 swabs with culture media tubes for sample storage, instructions, a return label, and sticker for sealing the box for return shipping. The shipping box is reused for return shipping. The pet owner must register the test on our website prior to shipping the sample.
