DSM’s DelvoTest is regarded as the Gold Standard in antibiotic milk testing and is widely used by dairy processors and individual farmers alike. Carbon Group supplies the starter kits and test (3hour or the 5minute rapid) either directly or from local creameries.

“Because the DevloTest is so convenient and easy, many farmers are testing the milk before it even leaves the yard. This has been standard practice on the continent for some time now but we are increasingly trending towards this here in Ireland. Farmers just aren’t prepared to take the risk anymore.” says Eddie O’Dwyer, Technical Manager, Carbon Group.
