STARTCHECK® HIPRA’s diagnostic tool for the detection and quantification of pathogenic bacteria (s. aureus, e.coli, cns and coliforms) in bovine milk samples from dairy farms in South Africa

STARTCHECK® is a reliable diagnostic tool that uses a new methodology to collect milk samples and detect the major mastitis causative agents. STARTCHECK® can be used to complement Somatic Cell Count (SCC) and Bacterial culture to monitor mastitis at a herd level1. STARTCHECK® has been used worldwide since 2009 and milk samples from 44 different countries have been analysed. The aim of this study is to show the results obtained in South African dairy farms.

Streszczenie

STARTCHECK® is a good diagnostic tool to identify pathogenic bacteria present in milk samples. The high specificity and sensitivity circumvents limitations experienced with bacteriology. Compared with worldwide data, it should be noted that the presence of Staph. aureus in South African samples (26%) is higher than samples obtained from other countries (6-10%).
