|Reaction Time||1 min.|
|Storage / Shelf Life||2~25ºC / Max. 18 Months|
What is the purpose of test?
To detect amount of ketone bodies in milk. High levels of BHB are an indicator of ketosis, a metabolic disorder caused by a negative energy balance
What is the BHB(Beta-hydroxybutyrate)?
BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) is one of the major ketone bodies and it can be used to monitor level of Ketosis.
Why you need to check Ketosis level ?
Ketosis occurs as a result of negative energy balance after calving.
During this time, milk production is increasing rapidly, while energy intake is not enough to sustain the higher production level. If this happens, cows metabolise body fat to meet their energy needs, resulting in increased production of ketones.
If the test strip indicates that the probability of infection is (-), it means good status
