At present the Laboratory carries out systematically the following analyses in order to control the quality of the raw milk in origin:
PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL ANALYSIS :
the following parameters are analyzed:
Fat, protein, lactose and dry meager extract (equipment used: Milkoscan)
Determination of the freezing point of the milk : parameter indicating the possible addition of water to the milk (equipment used: Crioscopi)
MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYSES : the following parameters are analyzed:
Number of aerobic mesophyl bacteria at 30ºC (equipment used: Bactosan)
Number of somatic cells (equipment used: Fossomatic)
Residues of growth inhibitors (antibiotics) : positive/negative.
(Therefore we carry the ECLIPSE 100 test out).
