LACTOSCAN SCC Somatic cell counter is based on fluorescent image cytometry for counting cells in milk. It fully comply with the ISO 13366-1 IDF 148-1 Enumeration of somatic cells - Microscopic method (Reference method) with regard to the staining of cells, in the definition of cells to be counted depending on the size and the methodology of the counting. The somatic cell counter offers visual control for excluding accidental errors. The measuring range of the counter is 2 to 30 µm and the results are expressed as number of cells per mL. The results are available within 20 to 60 seconds depending on the type of analysis. There is no need of calibration, only a graduated scale on a LACTOCHIP is used for verification of the magnification as per requirements of ISO 13366-1:2008 (IDF 148-1:2008) Milk -- Enumeration of somatic cells -- Part 1: Microscopic method (Reference method).

Cloud Solution

Results are easily stored and accessible at our cloud from any device all over the world or on your own local secure server.

Card image cap

Our device is used from small farms and dairies to large milk collection centres, factories and labs, even in educational and state control institutions.

Card image cap
Worlds lowest cost per test

The high precision image fluorescence somatic cell counting is now affordable even for small farmers, dairies and local dairy laboratories.

Card image cap
Demo software

Fully functional demo software with results from real tests of milk samples from animals suffering from subclinical, clinical, yeast and mycoplasma mastitis.

Card image cap
Mastitis types

The analysis gives information about cell size thereby differentiation of different mastitis can be done.

Card image cap

Results from the analysis can be printed to the inbuilt printer in short report or exported in pdf and excel in extended report with images and graphs.

Working principle

LACTOSCAN SCC is based on fluorescent microscope technique of counting cells. Thanks to the fluorescent dye, LED optics and CMOS filming Technologies, the analysis of the milk is precise, reliable and fast.

Coefficient of variation

LACTOSCAN SCC possesses the largest volume of scanned sample up to 9 µl that guarantee low coefficient of variation, better than the direct microscopic counting.

Calibration as microscope

There is no need of calibration, only a graduated scale on a LACTOCHIP is used for verification of the magnification as per requirements of ISO 13366-1:2008 (IDF 148-1:2008) Milk -- Enumeration of somatic cells -- Part 1: Microscopic method (Reference method).

Counting area

The counting area of the LACTOSCAN SCC has:
43 times larger area than a standard hemocytometer and
12 times larger area than similar instruments.
