For testing bulk tanks – not recommended for testing individual cows.
If you wish to test your bulk tank on a regular / routine basis, this is the version of Delvotest® you should now use.
From 1st November 2017, Delvotest® T is the version used by UK milk processors for weekly tank testing for payment purposes (by NML laboratories).
Delvotest® T is a broad spectrum antibiotic test with a fixed incubation time of 3¼ hours. It will detect all 6 antibiotic groups which your veterinary surgeon may prescribe – 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.
Please call us for advice if you are uncertain about which version of the test to use (01225 460234).
