Delvotest® Antibiotic Residue Tests for Dairy Farm Applications

Delvotest® antibiotic residue tests from DSM eliminate the uncertainties dairy farmers face when testing for antibiotics in milk. Whether you are testing individual cows or a bulk tank, the consequences of an unreliable test can be costly and devastating.

As a dairy farmer, you face uncertainties:

  • Consider those cows you just purchased. The seller said they were healthy and clear of any antibiotics, but are they?
  • How about that cow you've been treating? You've waited the prescribed amount of time. She should be clear. She probably is. Can you be sure?
  • What kind of antibiotic residue tests will be conducted at the dairy, and downstream from there? Will your results meet their standards?
  • How will antibiotic residue standards change, and when? In today's global economy, you do not know where your dairy products might end up, and what regulations might apply.
