Early mastitis detection.

Bentley Instruments is a recognized industry leader in reliable and precise determination of somatic cell counts in all types of raw milk. We offer two basic models, making it easy to select the right instrument for your operation plus a combi system combining Component analysis with Somatic cell counter.

Somacount FC

The Somacount FC delivers a rapid and accurate measurement of somatic cell counts (SCC) for early mastitis detection in dairy milk.

This instrument is ideal for small to mid-size laboratories that need an easy-to-maintain somatic cell counting system.

  • Proprietary process based on the principle of florescence based flow cytometry
  • Capable of analyzing up to 150 samples per hour
  • Standards based computing interface offers flexible data output options
  • Optional Automatic sampler for fully automated analysis
  • Low maintenance
  • Meets the requirements of IDF standards for somatic cell counting and is an AOAC approved methodology.

The web-enabled diagnostic features of the Somacount FC model allow Bentley Instruments to access your machine from any location. This enables your laboratory personnel and Bentley Instruments to collaborate and analyze all system functionality, no matter where the instrument is located.

Both manual and automated with autosampler versions are available.

Somacount FCM

The Somacount FCM delivers the ultimate efficiency and accuracy in early mastitis detection. This instrument provides a rapid and accurate count for the SCC (somatic cell count) in dairy milk.

This instrument represents the latest in state-of- the-art technology for automated milk analysis at up to 600 samples per hour. The Somacount flow cytometer, provides an accurate count of the somatic cells in a raw milk sample (cow, sheep, goat, camel, buffalo etc.). After first being stirred, the milk is drawn from a sample vial and delivered to the measurement module. The sampling, sequencing and identification of the sample vials are functions performed by the Autosampler.

The Bentley FCM exceeds the IDF 148A standard and ICAR requirements for somatic cell counting, employing AOAC approved methodology.

The web-enabled diagnostic features of the FCM series allow Bentley Instruments to access your machine from any location. This enables your laboratory personnel and Bentley Instruments to collaborate and analyze all system functionalities, no matter where the instrument is located.
