Mastitis Detector 4Q

A device for detecting sub-clinical mastitis in its earliest, visually undetectable stage


Why should you have it?

  • portable and easy to use device that allows for the production of top quality milk;
  • ergonomic design with a 4-quarter display;
  • helps to detect an early stage of illness without visible symptoms (Mastitis Subclinica);
  • detects medical condition separately for each quarter, displaying the difference between quarters and pointing to the one with the greatest risk from mastitis;
  • allows for effective prevention through fast udder condition monitoring;
  • accelerates the decision about treatment and shortens grace period;
  • reduces the costs of keeping the herd in good health condition;
  • reduces financial losses related to production of milk;
  • does not require using any chemicals;
  • investment for years.

Principle of operation
The detector measures changes in the electrical resistance of milk, as development of sub-clinical mastitis (asymptomatic stage) is accompanied by an increase in salt levels in milk, which involves a change in the resistance. This rule is considered to be the most reliable indirect test in diagnosing Mastitis Subclinica.

The test is very simple:

  • you need to milk the first portion of milk directly from the teat to measuring cup
  • press the button to read the result
  • pour out the milk and repeat the steps for other quarters
