|published date||24 March 2008|
|reference||ISO 13366-2, IDF 148-2: 2006|
This standard gives guidance on the operating conditions for counting somatic cells, in both raw and chemically preserved milk, using fluoro-opto-electronic somatic cell counters in which either a rotating disc technique or flow cytometry is applied in the counting section.
The guidance is applicable to the counting of somatic cells in raw cow milk. The guidance is also applicable to raw milk of other species, such as goat, sheep and buffalo, if the specified prerequisites are met.
