The Speed™ CPSE assay is a rapid immunochromatographic quantitative test which measures the circulating Canine Prostate Specific Esterase (CPSE) by laser-induced fluorescence analysis. The test should be performed only with a Speed Reader™ analyser.


Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is considered as the most frequent prostatic disease affecting about 80% of intact dogs over 5 years of age. BPH is the underlying cause of most other prostate disorders and an early diagnosis decreases the chance of future pathological conditions.

Speed™ ​​CPSE can be included in the routine examination of the prostate in dogs older than 5 to 6 years old, to early detect Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and prevent progress to associated diseases.

The correlation with the reference method (Odelis™ CPSE) was very high (R2= 0.97), indicating an excellent agreement between the two assay systems.
