Milk analysis

Somatic cell counter LACTOSCAN SCC

The number of somatic cells (SCC) is one of the internationally recognized standards for milk quality control and is also a useful indicator for mastitis presence.

Portable Lactoscan SCC is based on direct fluorescent, low magnification microscopic somatic cell counting. Lactoscan SCC uses a very sensitive fluorescent dye Sofia Green, LED optics CCD technologies for capturing in order to make the cells analysis more accurate, reliable and fast. Mostly, the objective selectiveness of Lactoscan SCC is combined with the permanent high stability of the different mechanical, electronic, optical and chemical components of the system, which provides almost identical results during the whole duration of machine's use.

Detection of antibiotics

Detection of antibiotics in milk- Eclipse 3 G

The ECLIPSE kit is a broad-range screening test designed for the qualitative detection of antibiotics in milk. The method has been validated following the ISO 1369:2003(E) and is based on the inhibition of microbial growth. It is supplied in a microtiter plate format where each well contains agar medium spread with Geobacillus stearothermophilus. When the plate is incubated at 65ºC spores germinate and cells grow producing acid and changing the agar pH. Variations of pH will produce changes of the agar colour from blue (purple) to yellowish. When milk samples contain inhibitors at higher concentrations than the detection limit, microorganisms will not grow and neither colour changes will be observed.

Kit features: One step assay, Compliance with MRLs (Maximum Residue Limits), Broad range of antibiotics detection, Ready-to-use

Format: 96-well microplate (divisible into individual wells)

Sample kind: Cow, sheep and goat milk

Results: Visual or photometrical reading

Detection of antibiotics in milk- Eclipse Farm 3 G

The ECLIPSE Farm kit is a broad-range screening test designed for the qualitative detection of antibiotics in milk. The method has been validated following the ISO 1369:2003(E) and is based on the inhibition of microbial growth. It is supplied in a single tubes format where each tube contains agar medium spread with Geobacillus stearothermophilus. When the tubes are incubated at 65ºC spores germinate and cells grow producing acid and changing the agar pH. Variations of pH will produce changes of the agar colour from blue (purple) to yellowish. When milk samples contain inhibitors at higher concentrations than the detection limit, microorganisms will not grow and neither colour changes will be observed.

e-Reader for Eclipse

e-Reader is an autonomous system that coupled to Eclipse Farm3G tests allows to simplify and standardize the screening of a broad range of antibiotics in milk. It can aslo be used for the screening of, meat, eggs, kidney and feed with the Explorer 2.0 kit.

It is a bacteria inhibition growth tests, where the presence and absence of antibiotics is detected by changes in the media colour.

An internal software integrates color and time parameters to determine the endpoint of the assay. e-Reader also interprets the results as qualitative and numerical values. The results are stored to guarantee full traceability.

Working temperature: 65 ºC

Automatic stop of the assay. The results are displayed on screen at the end of the incubation time.

Detection of milk-mixture - RC-BOVINO and RC-CAPRINO

Milk with high economic value is commonly adulterated with milk from species of lower cost. This adulteration can be important for cheese makers, unknown milk mixtures produce changes in the final sensory properties and reduce the product quality. Also, pure cheese cannot contain milk from other species.

Sheep milk is more expensive than goat or cow's milk and tends to be adulterated with those of lower cost. RC kits are ELISA tests for quantitative determination of milk mixtures.

RC BOVINO kit is a quantitative test to detect the presence of cow's milk in goat or sheep's milk. The test is an immunoassay based on the detection of bovine immunoglobulins (IgG) in milk and cheese samples.

RC CAPRINO kit is a quantitative test to detect the presence of goat's milk in sheep's milk. The test is an immunoassay based on the detection of caprine immunoglobulins (IgG) in milk and cheese samples.

  • Quantitative: range: 0-10% (cow) and 0-15% (goat)
  • Sensitive: detection of 0.1% mixture
  • Suitable for: milk and cheese
  • Assay time: 90 min
  • Equipment: ELISA reader 450 nm


Milk test strips for neutralizers, hydrogen peroxide and urea- Milk Security

The neutralizers, hydrogen peroxide and urea in milk samples influence on the quality of milk and milk products. Milk security test strips are rapid and sensitive dry strips to detect milk adulteration.

Test for neutralizers: Neutralizers like sodium bicarbonate, sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate or hydrated lime are often added to milk. Usually they are added to milk to increase the lactometer reading.

Test for hydrogen peroxide: The impregnate test zone with enzyme and chromogen ensured very selectivity determination of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a well-known powerful oxidizer. Its capabilities as a disinfectant are superior than chlorine (Cl2) and chlorine dioxide (ClO2). Hydrogen peroxide is commonly used in dairy industries. Peroxide indicator strips can be used to ensure that any residual peroxide sanitizer has been fully removed before filling.

Test for urea concentration: Urea is generally added in the preparation of milk to raise the solids-not-fat (SNF) value. It has been proven that urea added to milk at a higher concentration reduces the activity of hydrogen ions and increases the pH of the milk. Normal values of urea in milk are from 0 to 0.07%. Urea concentration above 0.07% means that the milk was adulterated with urea.

Parameter / concentration
Neutralizers 0 0.03% 0.06% 0.10%
H2O2 0 0.0075% 0.015% 0.025%
Urea 0 0.07% 0.12%


Milk test strips for titratable acidity and pH- MILK SECURITY

The test strip has a green-blue indication area. Through it can be determined the titratable acidity of milk in three scales: 0Th (Thörner degrees) and 0D (Dornic degrees) and 0SH (Soxhlet Henkel degrees). Measurement is valid in the absence of neutralizers.

The measured values of titratable acidity correspond to certain values of pH. Fresh cow's milk has a pH around 6.6 – 6.8. Values greater than 6.8 indicate that the milk has coagulated and a value below 6.5 indicates the presence of colostrums or bacterial contamination.


Rapid screening for antibiotics

Antibiotic residues in milk pose a major problem in dairy industries because they can inhibit or slow down starter cultures for yoghurt and cheese production. With these kits it is easy to control the milk in 10 minutes. When positive it is advised to confirm with another test.

It is a rapid phosphatase test for the detection of alcaline phosphatase in milk, whey, cream and butter. The test allows the testing of sufficient pasteurisation treatment of milk and related products, and the detection of raw milk in pasteurized milk. Sensitivity of the test is as follows:

1. For measurement from 5 seconds up to 300 seconds: 280 mU/L ALP

2. For measurements from 15 minutes up to 60 minutes: 3.5 mU/L ALP

One kit is enough for 100 tests. For the test procedure there is no need of thermal preparation of the sample. The test works at temperatures 2-42 °C. The kit with the reagents must be stored at the refrigerator at a temperature 2-8 °C.
