Date:12/27/2011

UNION CITY, Calif., Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Abaxis, Inc. (NasdaqGS: ABAX), a medical products company manufacturing point of care instrumentation and consumables to the medical, research and veterinary markets, announced today its Abaxis Veterinary Reference Laboratories (AVRL) Division, based in Olathe, Kansas, is now offering a quantitative antibody test for canine Lyme disease. The new canine Lyme test invented and developed by Abaxis, Inc., measures a combination of antibodies to peptides which mimic certain antigens of the Borrelia burgdorferi spirochete. These antibodies are not found in vaccinated or non-infected patients.

Dr. Kenneth Aron, Chief Technology Officer at Abaxis, commented, "We have utilized advances in peptide chemistry and immunology to design a robust laboratory-based test that can distinguish an active Lyme infection from immunity based on vaccination. These advances allow a definitive diagnosis which is required for reference laboratory performed confirmation test."

The new quantitative Lyme test can be used as a standalone diagnostic test to determine infection status or efficacy of treatment. It can also be used as a quantitative confirmation test for the soon to be released VetScan Lyme Rapid Test which is currently under development.

Mark Patterson, President of AVRL added, "The Lyme quantitative antibody test is an exciting addition to the more than 500 tests that are already offered at our new, state of the art facility. It is also a great example of how the Abaxis point-of-care products are complemented by the full service laboratory that we have developed. The Lyme quantitative antibody test is the first of what we expect to be many new and unique assays for the veterinary community."
