How it works
Saber SCC measures SCC by measuring the DNA released from somatic cells in the milk. The amount of DNA released is directly proportional to the number of somatic cells in the milk. Saber SCC does not measure conductivity or some other part of the milk as it is not an accurate measure of true SCC levels.
Saber SCC mounts directly onto the milk-line. The long milk hose is connected to Saber SCC prior to the milk-line inlet. Saber SCC will automatically collect a small sample of milk approximately 30 seconds after activation. Saber SCC then mixes the sample with a specially designed reagent, CellGel™, to get the accurate SCC reading.
After installing Saber SCC in my shed my Bulk Somatic Cell Count is now sitting at 150,000 instead of 350,000… It’s so simple to use, and I can now relax knowing that I have the tools in place to manage my herd’s Cell Count. It’s fantastic! I should have done it years ago!. – Neil Mirfin, Taupiri, NZ
