DeLaval Cell Counter DCC offers you a professional tool for mastitis diagnostics. With the DeLaval Cell Counter DCC you can test and monitor the somatic cell count directly on the farm and have the result in under a minute.
The somatic cell count is one of the most important milk quality indicators. The focus on this parameter is growing constantly around the world, because milk with a high somatic cell count means lower milk quality. As an example, to produce cheese you must have milk with a low cell count.
Take control of the mastitis levels by conducting an accurate, instant, on farm somatic cell count test on any cow or quarter. The direct somatic cell count pinpoints the need for bacteriological tests, which helps avoids unnecessary testing and associated costs.
The DeLaval Cell Counter DCC accurately measure your herd, cow or cow quarter somatic cell count. This instrument counts the somatic cells optically and automatically. A digital camera takes a picture of the somatic cells' nuclei, which is stained in the cassette with a DNA specific fluorescent reagent and counts the cells' nuclei one by one.
Dry cow management
Efficient follow-up of fresh cow udder health
Immediate follow-up of mastitis treated cows
DeLaval Cell Counter DCC makes it possible to detect mastitis infection at an early stage, when it is easy and cost effective to treat it and before it spreads within the herd infecting other cows. Herds with mastitis under control will have a bulk tank somatic cell count below 100 000 cells/ml milk.
DeLaval Cell Counter DCC is a portable instrument and does not require external power, so you can use it whenever and wherever you choose. The start-up takes just a few seconds. To test, just suck up a small amount of milk into the cassette and insert it into the DCC. The sample result shows clearly as cells/ml milk on the display, just 45 seconds after the cassette is inserted.
