Saber SCC sensors work in both rotary and herringbone parlours and with or without an electronic animal identification system.
How it works:
Saber SCC is a digital box that completes an accurate reading of the milk. It gives the exact cell count in the parlour within two minutes of the cups being put on. Saber 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’s SCC does not measure conductivity or some other part of the milk as it is not an accurate measure of true Somatic cell count levels.
Saber’s SCC mounts directly onto the milk-line. The long milk hose is connected to Saber’s SCC prior to the milk-line inlet. It 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 Somatic cell count reading. When a problem cow has been identified the system lights amber or red
