Delvotest® – the industry’s gold standard in antibiotic residue testing in milk

Delvotest® is easy to use and covers the broadest spectrum of antibiotic residues in the industry. It is known for its reliability and accuracy, with detection levels closest to maximum residue levels and safe tolerance levels.

Its easy to use, here's how...

  • Take a representative milk sample
  • Remove ampoule from the tray
  • Open and mark ampoules
  • Fill pipette with milk
  • Squeeze the contents of the pipette into the ampoule
  • Check the temperature of the incubator (640C +/-20C). Put the ampoule into the incubator
  • Set the timer at three hours for a fixed time reading. The best sensitivity is reached when using control time. The control time for ewe’s milk is slightly longer than for cow's and goat's milk (10-15 minutes)
  • After three hours read the color and result
