Bovivet California Mastitis Milk Test Kit - 1 Litre Liquid, Pipette & Paddle

Easy to use detection system for sub-clinical mastitis. The kit comprises 1L test liquid (sufficient for 500 quarters), segmented test paddle and 3ml pipette. Developed for detection of mastitis in milking cows, sheep, goats, alpacas and llama. Useful if you notice a youngster struggling to feed from an uncomfortable and 'down' looking mother. The test is simple and instant - simply place roughly 3ml of milk from each quarter in the corresponding segment of the paddle. Tilt the paddle to pour off excess, using the line on the base as a guide. Add 3 ml of the test solution to each section and swirl to mix. A negative result occurs when the liquidity of the mixture is unchanged. For a weak positive, the mixture becomes somewhat viscous (cell count up to 1,500,000 per ml); a distinct 'mucus' appearance with a considerable increase in viscosity indicates up to 5,000,000 cells per ml. If the mixture turns almost into a jelly and lumps develop, this indicates a strong positive result with over 5,000,000 cells per ml.
