Thermo Fisher Scientific

Bacterial culture has long been the standard method of pathogen identification for bovine mastitis.

However, according to the National Mastitis Council Protocols, Guidelines and Procedures, bacterial culture can fail to provide the correct diagnosis.

There is an ongoing need to implement better, more advanced diagnostic technologies that can bring more reliable and accurate results to help producers and veterinarians better manage the economic and welfare damage that mastitis can cause.

Learn how PCR offers a quicker and more objective way to detect multiple pathogens and mitigate inaccurate results by downloading the case study.
