Delvotest - Milk Antibiotic Testing Kit 

Delvotest – used worldwide

Delvotest is a microbiological test which can detect the presence of a wide range of antibiotics thanks to a very special bacterial strain. When used in milk testing, this strain is inhibited if Antiobiotics are present.

The Delvotest 'on the farm' kit comes in ampoule form. Each ampoule contains a bacterial growth medium and the special bacterial spores. In the presence of milk and its natural nutrients, the bacteria will germ and multiply during the incubation period (at an optimum temperature of 64°C). However, if antibiotic residues are present in the milk this does not happen.

Delvotest is;

- simple to carry out interpret,

- sensitive to a broad range of antimicrobials,  

- quick and labour saving

- good reproducibility 

- for on farm use
