    Differential SCC for improved mastitis management

    Differential somatic cell count (DSCC) is a new milk testing parameter introduced with the CombiFoss™ 7 DC analyser. It complements the established test for total number of somatic cells (SCC) pioneered by FOSS in the 1980’s. The Fossomatic™ 7 DC has several sensors detecting fluorescence signals from milk cells and a new chemistry and an incubation unit. Combined, they enable the instrument to measure DSCC and SCC simultaneously.
