Diagnosis of mastitis pathogens is based on microbiological culture of mammary gland secretions and subsequent identification of the pathogens by MALDI-TOF or molecular genetic methods (PCR). We also perform typing of microbial growth on plates used in the stable diagnosis of mastitis. We also perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing on the identified pathogens.

Diagnosis of mastitis pathogens is carried out in a sophisticated manner, including detection of not only the major bacterial mastitis pathogens, but also less common and environmental pathogens such as yeasts, fungi and algae. Advice on both antimicrobial therapy and the implementation of management to recover dairy herds from mastitis pathogens is an integral part of our service.

How to correctly collect milk for testing

First perform a dry udder wipe and then wipe the teat with a disposable disinfectant wipe. Once dry, squirt the first squirt into a cup, followed by 5-10 ml of milk into a sterile tube with a cap. Close the tube immediately after milking.

Is milk tested for mycoplasma as part of routine bacteriological testing?

It is not. At present, this testing is only carried out on the basis of a direct order from the client. This is due to the cost of the PCR test and the longer culture time for mycoplasma.
