Technology > How does it work?

LUCI® measures the Somatic Cell Count (SCC) during every milking > 50K cells/ml. Measuring SCC in milk from individual cows at these low concentrations is a highly effective tool for diagnosing mastitis at sub-clinical stages.

For the Dairy production chain the SCC result is an important quality parameter for raw milk. The lower the SCC, the better the milk.

LUCI® SCC detection relies on the bioluminescent assay based on the determination of ATP from the somatic cells. This process is automated and housed in a compact, lightweight unit: LUCI®. The SCC numbers produced by LUCI are accurate and reliable, confirmed by Wageningen University.

This reaction occurs every day in nature; it is how fireflies produce Glow.
