Dr. Herman Hansen founded the company in 1980 with the goal of making affordable pet care available to all. That was over 30 years ago and the doctor’s vision lives today as Hansen Dx continues to provide the highest-quality and lowest-cost diagnostics for Canines and Felines.
Our narrow focus results in a depth of expertise that is unmatched in the industry. Hansen DX was the first laboratory in the world to offer feline AIDS diagnostic tests, two full years ahead of our nearest competitor. And we were the first in the world to offer an ELISA test for feline leukemia virus antigen. Our IFA test for feline AIDS antibody is considered by many to be the most specific test available anywhere.
Hansen Dx is continually working to develop new and better tests. New products currently in development include:
• Canine and feline early detection assay for Dirofilaria Immitis
• A definitive serological assay for Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)
• An efficacious vaccine for Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)
Yes, we are a small laboratory, which provides great benefits to our customers. We get to know our customers and they get to know us. In fact, It’s not uncommon for a customer to consult with Dr. Hansen directly about a particular test result, or even to put the veterinarian on the phone for a personal consultation. This commitment to service sets us apart from any other veterinary laboratory. At Hansen Dx, we answer all questions promptly and fill your orders immediately.
