The bactotype Mastitis HP3 PCR Kit from INDICAL is a highly sensitive and specific test for identification and differentiation of DNA from three major mastitis-causing pathogens in samples from ruminant milk (quarter milk samples, pool or bulk milk):

  • Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae)
  • Mycoplasma bovis (M. bovis)
  • Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus)

(Bovine) Mastitis

Bovine mastitis is the single most costly disease of dairy cattle worldwide, mainly caused by intra-mammary infection (IMI). This may be associated with increased somatic cell counts in bovine milk and a reduction of milk yield and quality.
Mastitis manifests itself as clinical or sub-clinical Mastitis. Clinical Mastitis can be further classified as mild, moderate or severe/fatal and as chronic Mastitis, which often require antimicrobial therapy.

A wide range of bacteria can cause Mastitis and can be subdivided into cow-associated (or contagious Mastitis) pathogens (e.g., S. agalactiae, M. bovis, S. aureus) and environmental pathogens (e.g., S. uberis, E. coli, Klebsiella).

The bactotype Mastitis HP3 PCR Kit detects the most important cow-associated and highly contagious bacteria S. agalactiae, M. bovis and S. aureus with high sensitivity.
It allows the detection of these pathogens in quarter milk samples as well as in pool or bulk milk.

Because milk matters.

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