Central Milk Testing for Payment and Herd Management

Our dedicated milk testing solutions are used by more than 80% of all Milk Testing Laboratories around the world for cow, sheep, goat and buffalo and camel milk analysis. These solutions analyze bacteria, somatic cells and a wide range of compositional parameters and can screen for abnormal milk, added water and ketosis.


Two Analysis Areas - One Common Platform

CombiFoss combines the Fossomatic™ FC and MilkoScan™ FT+ in one efficient system with a common sample conveyor and a shared software interface. Fossomatic FC employs flow cytometry - a rapid and highly accurate method based on counting individual somatic cells. MilkoScan™ FT+ uses powerful Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) technology to simultaneously provide multiple analysis results for a wide range of compositional parameters.
