Overview of all results per dairy producer... with 1 mouse click in a handy and clear report!

  • Select the period for which you want to make the analysis 

    Would you like to make an overview of all results twice a year for each of your producers or would you rather have a quick overview of the available results for one specific dairy farm in respons to a mastitis problem? It's up to you! One mouse click and a few seconds later a clear, personalised and professional report will appear. 

  • Overview of the evolution of the number of samples collected per month 

    The first graph in the report gives you more insight into the evolution of the number of milk samples per month obtained from cows with clinical or subclinical mastitis.  

  • Knowledge of the origin of the mastitis causing pathogens 

    On the detailed graphs of the milk samples obtained from clinical and subclinical mastitis cases you can immediately see whether the mastitis causing pathogens are either more cow adapted or more environmental in nature.  

  • Detailed overview of the farm-specific distribution of the mastitis causing pathogens

    The results of individual bacteriological examination provide you with valuable information for your treatment advice for each specific cow. But which germ is most common on each farm? How can you best prevent new cases of mastitis in the future? Or maybe more than 5% of the milk samples were contaminated and therefore the real cause of the intramammary infection could not be identified? The detailed tables provide answers to all these questions at a glance.  

  • Understanding the antibiotic resistance patterns 

    For each germ isolated you get an overview of the susceptibility tests that were performed and the percentage of germs that were (intermediate) sensitive or resistant to certain antimicrobials. This allows you to make targeted adjustments to the treatment strategy based on farm-specific results. 

  • Overview table of all results per animal

    With this detailed table combining all diagnoses from the selected period, you never lose the overview again. In this table, you will find the results of each animal from which a milk sample was collected in the selected period. And you will not lose sight of a specific animal that has been sampled multiple times. 


Information about the mastitis causing bacteria in each report

  • All information about the mastitis causing pathogen that were isolated is available by default

    You don't have to write your own texts anymore and type or copy the same explanations in every report over and over again.  From now on a default text will appear in the report for each diagnosis. Useful information for the producer about the virulence of the pathogen, the prevalence of the pathogen and possible prevention measures are included in every report. This additional information can be found at the very end of the report. As a result, you can now use the entire advice field to formulate a clear and unambiguous (treatment) advice tailored to each specific cow.


Ability to visualize the strength of growth of each germ on the agar plate 

  • Bacterial load

    Via 4 categories (+, ++, +++, ++++), you can indicate the strength of the growth per pathogen found on the agar plate. 



Improved reporting to your dairy producer by e-mail

  • Use a default text in every email

    In your personal settings, as in the example below, you can provide a default text that automatically appears in every email you send to your dairy producer. A greeting, reference to the report in the attachment, your personal signature and contact details, ... it's all possible.

  • The logo of your own vet practice in the email

    In order to increase the recognisability of each e-mail towards your dairy producer, the logo of your own vet practice will automatically appear below the default text in each email. The only thing you need to do is to add the logo of your vet practice once into the system via your personal settings.

  • The name of each file contains the name of the producer

    By not only incorporating the unique ID code but also the identity of the producer in the file name of each report you can immediately see at a glance for whom a particular report is intended without the need to open it. This is of course also useful if you save the files on your computer and want to retrieve them later.  

  • The veterinarian assigned to a file automatically appears in CC 

    There is no need to manually add the email address of the assigned veterinarian to the emails. The veterinarian assigned to a file will automatically receive a copy of the email when it is sent to the producer. 

  • Add a default recipient address 

    Do you already have a (common) email address to which all other lab results are sent? Fill in this email address in the field "Standard email address to send report" in your personal settings, and you will receive a copy of each result as soon as the report is sent to the producer.
