Ekomilk Scan for milk producers provides accurate and quick somatic cell count (SCC) per quarter, per cow and for the dairy herd. With somatic cell measurement and monitoring (thanks to the included software), the mammary gland infection “mastitis” of milk cows can be detected at an early stage and udder health can be improved. In turn, milk production and quality (also important for dairy processing like cheese and yoghurt) can be improved at the dairy farm. Ekomilk Scan is a cost-effective and easy-to-use digital cell meter (counter) which also helps reducing laboratory costs. It is important to avoid a too high cell level in the milk tank.

  • 1. Somatic cell counter (SSC)for milk producers at dairy farms Presentation by Wouter Vandevelde May 2012 Belgium Website : www.tapservices.eu www.ekomilk.eu
  • 2. Ekomilk Scan: somatic cell count Reliable The somatic cell counter (or meter) for cow and robust milk, Ekomilk Scan, has been designed for cost-effective and easy milk quality control at the dairy farm by the milk producer. Regular milk quality control on a dairy farm is an important step in the prevention, detection and treatment of mastitis, the most common dairy disease.May 2012 2 Easy cell count for mastitis control
  • 3. Ekomilk Scan: mastitis detectionAffordable and Ekomilk Scan counts the somatic cells incost-efficient fresh (raw) milk. With Ekomilk Scan, the milk producer can measure the somatic cell level (SCC) per quarter, per cow or for the whole herd (cf. milk tank) and detect mastitis at an early stage. In this way the (bovine) cattle owner can improve udder health and increase milk production in terms of quantity and quality, in a cost-effective way.May 2012 3 Easy cell count for mastitis control
  • 4. Ekomilk Scan: cost-efficient Using Ekomilk Scan, one test (analysis) costs around 0,05 Euros (estimation based on the approx. cost of the reagent). Therefore, the milk producer can reduce lab analysis expenses using Ekomilk Scan for cell count, while at the same time he or she can also measure more frequently at the dairy farm without incurring logistics costs and delays (for transport of milk samples). After all, it is important to avoid a too high cell level in the milk tank.May 2012 4 Easy cell count for mastitis control
  • 5. Ekomilk Scan: specifications Main specifications: • Measuring range: 90k – 1.5M cells/ml • Duration for one measurement: (measurement time): approx. 2 min The exact duration depends on the cell level and measurement mode. • Repeatability: <+/- 5% (around 300k cells/ml) • Accuracy: Using the software for calibration according to your preferred reference (e.g. a laboratory standard), a precision of around 10% can be achieved.May 2012 5 Easy cell count for mastitis control
  • 6. Ekomilk Scan: technical specifications Main technical specifications: • Proven method, reliable; • Compact design, portable and lightweight; • Cost-effective and budget-friendly; • Power supply: DC12V (cable included) or AC230V/110V; • Internal memory for 250 measurements; • Interface for PC and thermal printer; • Software for analysis and visualization of results; • CE Certified • 1 or 2 years warrantyMay 2012 6 Easy cell count for mastitis control
