Preservation of fecal glucocorticoid metabolites and immunoglobulin A through silica gel drying for field studies in horses

Krueger, Konstanze ; Marr, Isabell ; Dobler, Andrea ; Palme, Rupert ; Cooke, Steven


Stability of stress hormone metabolites, fecal glucocorticoid metabolites (FGMs), and immunoglobulin A (IgA) was evaluated in horse feces dried in an air tight tube on silica gel, for improving stress analysis with fecal samples collected under field conditions with uncontrollable humidity. IgA showed a significant loss, but FGMs were stable and appeared to be reliably preserved. Non-invasive ...
