The PortaBHB milk ketone test is a semi-quantitative dipstick for the detection of subclinical ketosis.

  • 1 minute reaction time
  • 2 year shelf life when stored at room temperature.
  • Cowside test. Squirt milk onto test strip and read results.

25 Strips 

This test is intended solely for the estimation of ketones in fresh cow milk. The test is not a laboratory reference method and should not be used as a diagnostic test. Consult a veterinarian before starting any treatment.

The reagent pad on the test strip contains an enzyme that converts BHB to acetoacetate. This reaction generates hydrogen ions that reduce nitrotetrazolium blue to formazan, which is purple in color. The darker the purple color, the higher the concentration of BHB.

To Use:

  • 1. Remove a test strip from vial. Close vial tightly.
  • 2. Forestrip.
  • 3. Squirt milk directly onto a test strip, or collect a milk sample (quarter or composite) into a clean labeled container. The container does not have to be sterile. Mix the sample. If milk is collected into a container, dip the pad of the test strip into the sample.
  • 4. Remove test strip and shake off excess milk.
  • 5. Wait one minute and compare to color chart.

 

BHB concentration in milk Indication:

0-99 μmol/L normal (-)

100-199 μmol/L questionable (+/-)

200-499 μmol/L positive (+)

500 + μmol/L positive (++)
