What is UdderCheck?
UdderCheck is a dipstick mastitis test that measures Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) in fresh milk samples. Each vial contains 50 test strips.
What is LDH? Why test for it?
Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme present in milk when cells are damaged during an udder infection. LDH is correlated to SCC, but is not as easily affected by other conditions such as stress, nutrition, parity, stage of lactation, etc. LDH levels often rise earlier than somatic cell counts, making it an excellent marker for early detection of udder infections.
