Mastitis- stop the guessing game with the herd
CHECK-UP now offers two exciting on-farm culture products to help with mastitis in dairy cows, reduce somatic cell count and improve milk quality.
CHECK-UP Mastitis Diagnostic Tool- the new industry standard for clinical cases of mastitis to identify a range of mastitis pathogens and new CHECK-UP Herd Screen for screening large numbers of cows to identify subclinical Staphylococcus aureus, with or without herd testing.
CHECK-UP Herd Screen is an exciting development allowing the screening of large numbers of cows for an affordable price, and adds value by identifying pathogens present for further testing, as well as cows carrying contagious Staph aureus- which is often transmitted by infectious cows without clinical symptoms, and can lead to bulk tank somatic cell count (SCC) elevation without clots on the milk filter or clinical cases. Since Staph aureus is very contagious, it is an important pathogen to identify and mangage or remove from your herd to prevent further infection spread.
CHECK-UP Herd Screen identifies unusual strains of Staph. aureus including those that do not conform to laboratory normal testing such as PCR, Haemolytic patterns, coagulase negative and latex agglutination negative strains.
Since large farms have many cows, we offer a new service via ourselves and our distribution partners to help test your milk. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org

Almost all bovine mastitis is caused by bacteria, by identifying the organism causing the infection the correct antibiotic choice to treat the infection, if indeed an antibiotic is necessary, can be made.
