The bovine mastitis


Development of a rapid detection kit

Bovine mastitis is an infection of the udder with bacteria entering through the teat sphincter. It triggers an inflammatory reaction combined with an influx of white blood cells (or leukocytes) into the udder, which increases the number of somatic cells in the milk. It is a natural defensive reaction against an aggression by bacteria. The three main bacteria involved are Staphylococcus aureusStreptococcus uberis and Escherichia coli.

Bovine mastitis is the No. 1 pathology in dairy farms and affects more than 40% of cows in production.

Vetophage has developed a kit to detect the different bacteria involved in the disease.

This detection kit has many advantages:

  • Fast: detection in 10 min
  • Practical: can be used by the breeders themselves
  • Specific, targets the detected bacteria
