Food & Dairy

PCR

Because milk matters – bactotype Mastitis Test System for rapid, flexible and meaningful Mastitis monitoring and control.

Bovine Mastitis is the single most common and most costly disease of dairy cattle worldwide.

Mastitis reduces milk production and raw milk quality, making it unsuitable for human consumption. Treating a cow herd for mastitis is costly, leads to milk withholding after treatment and may force producers to cull their dairy cows. Reliably identifying pathogens the cause mastitis is the cornerstone of targeted therapy strategies.

From surveillance to diagnostics, INDICAL’s modular bactotype Mastitis Test System enables customers to implement different strategies for rapid and reliable mastitis testing to meet their specific needs.
