Fossomatic™ FC

Fossomatic™ FC

ex. FOSS - Sweden

Effective herd improvement

Fossomatic™ FC performs accurate milk analysis using somatic cell counting. It is a high-capacity analyser that meets the demands of farmers in need of fast and reliable Dairy Herd Improvement, (DHI) results. It is also available as part of CombiFoss™ FT+.

Fossomatic™ FC is based on flowcytometry technology that counts and characterises particles and cells. It can be directly translated as the measurement of cells while they are flowing.

Automated operations help the Qlip central milk testing (CMT) laboratory in Zutphen, the Netherlands, keep up with evolving demands while providing a more flexible quality control service for farmers and dairies.

Proven platform

Fossomatic™ FC includes the best of proven technology such as:

  • Closed reagent handling
  • Effective waste handling
  • Accurate measurements based on FOSS Flow Cytometry
  • High-precision at grading limits using precision set-up

Integrated software platform

FOSS MilkoScan™ FT+, Fossomatic™ FC and CombiFoss™ FT+ share the same powerful Foss Integrator™ software platform offering advanced data handling and storage facilities for traceability while a common user interface promotes more efficient laboratory operations.

Advanced technology

To match the increasing demands of the modern laboratory Fossomatic™ FC includes advanced features such as:

  • Robust pressurized pump system for sheath liquid
  • Heating of rinse liquid
  • Temperature-controlled liquids to optimize staining and cleaning
  • Software platform (FOSS Integrator™ IMT) for ease of use, result-handling and traceability
