DSM introduces Delvotest BLF (beta-lactam fast test),By DSM Food Specialties

DSM introduces Delvotest® BLF (beta-lactam fast test), the next generation high speed dairy test. It analyzes milk samples and measures traces of beta-lactam, the main antibiotic used to treat cattle, in just five minutes. This latest innovation forms part of the well-known Delvotest portfolio of broad spectrum and fast milk testing kits, and has the benefit of requiring no new laboratory equipment.

Delivering consistently reliable results, the new test brings greater efficiency to detection of antibiotic residues, saving time and money for dairies worldwide.

With Delvotest BLF, dairy professionals no longer need to wait for lengthy tests to prove that the milk is safe to use. In only five minutes the testing kit can detect traces of beta-lactam to determine milk quality. Safe milk can then be reintroduced quickly into the value chain to maximize production and reduce waste. Plus, the test safeguards dairies’ reputation by further minimizing the risk of contaminated milk entering the supply chain.

Delvotest BLF is easy to use, and requires no new laboratory equipment for Delvotest customers. Dairy professionals can accurately check the milk safety at any stage, from the farm to the processing facility, with reliable results every time. Results are given by clear color readings that leave no room for error.

Mylène Caussette, global marketing manager, DSM, comments, “Dairies want to make the most of the milk they process, and are always looking for ways to maximize their efficiency. It’s vital for dairy professionals to be able to rely on tests to notify them the moment the milk is free from antibiotics and is safe to use. Our Delvotest range has been the gold standard of testing in the industry for more than 35 years, providing trusted and proven results every time. Constant research and innovation ensures that we can continue to bring high quality, reliable products, like the new Delvotest BLF, to dairies around the world.”

DSM has been the market leader in dairy testing since 1974. The Delvotest portfolio comprises a full range of broad spectrum and fast antibiotic residue testing kits for milk at every step of the value chain. Delvotest BLF can be used in conjunction with other Delvotest products for maximum reliability and speed.
