Delvotest® T is an AFNOR certified, broad-spectrum test that detects over 65 antibiotics with a fixed incubation time of 3º hours. It will detect all 6 antibiotic groups which your veterinary surgeon may prescribe ‚Äì at the same levels of sensitivity used by your milk buyer to accept or reject your bulk tanks.
Carrying out routine checks on farm tanks is becoming much more popular as herd sizes increase and reliance on employed labour more prevalent. From 1st November 2017, Delvotest® T is the version used by UK milk processors for weekly tank testing for payment purposes (by NML laboratories).
