LactiCyte™ HD - Now with CyteTrak™

LactiCyte™ HD - Now with CyteTrak™

The robust PC driven LactiCyte-HD Somatic Cell Counter provides rapid, accurate and affordable somatic cell counts for cow, goat, sheep and/or buffalo milk. The LactiCyte-HD covers a wide range (from 1 to 10,000,000 SCC/mL). The range for actionable outcomes can be customized by the User (i.e. "Warning Level", "Critical Level). Just insert a cartridge and test results are reported in <60 seconds via on-screen display, printout and USB interface.

An Automated Microscope based on Image Cytometry using fluorescent dyeing technique and magnification approach to cell counting, the results are recorded by a charged-coupled device (CCD) camera digitalization of the actual cells. The LactiCyte-HD has an excellent correlation with the Direct Microscopic Somatic Cell Count (DMSCC) methode.


The CyteTrak gives you the capability to sort and filter data created by the LactiCyte-HD, so you can get the essential data you need from the LactiCyte-HD's compacted data recorded. You can filter and graph by date/time, by client (animal, tank name, etc), or on a specific range of SCC test results.

  • User-friendly and Easy to Use Data Analysis and Sorting Program
  • Excellent trend analysis tool
  • Keep track of the SCC numbers from animal to bulk tank (teat to tank)
  • Graphic presentation of selected screen
  • Automatic update of Data Base
  • Extends Data Storage capabilities of the LactiCyte-HD
  • Store and secure data when deleted from the LactiCyte-HD’s main Data Base
  • Effective tool to categorize test data

LactiCyte-HD Applications

Milk Reception/Milk Collection Stations
Results from individual cows, bulk tanks and/or tanker trucks are reliably and rapidly reported. Test results can be printed out (built-in printer) for suppliers. Easy to use, simple system (prepare sample, insert cartridge & push START - results are ready in <1 minute per test!)
An exceptionally practical instrument for small and mid-sized labs, the LactiCyte-HD features an impressive correlation with Direct Microscopic Somatic Cell Count. Choose between the budget-priced quick test (16 pictures) using a four channel cartridge or a more precise test (36 pictures) using two channel cartridges. Options for more in-depth analysis are also available. See Advanced Mode.
Field Extension Services and Farm Level
Optimize herd management by proactively (not reactively) monitoring SCC real-time to facilitate early intervention (also in cases of sub-clinical mastitis). See positive outcomes in herd health & milk quality while realizing cost savings. Treatment can be closely monitored for timely and positive outcomes with potential cost savings.
Dairy Science Studies and R&D
The digitized, visual image of somatic cells counted can be enhanced to assist in specific dairy studies. The precision and accuracy of the LactiCyte-HD provide an excellent and affordable tool for introducing students to total somatic cell counting techniques. Results provide critical data in qualifying required parameters to preserve integrity of milk protein for nutritional benefits and optimize onward manufacturing.
