"The Acumen system has been a tremendous help in controlling a Mycoplasma outbreak in our herd. Prior to purchasing the Acumen system, cows would be in the treated pen 7-14 days before the previously used testing system could identify a positive cow. Now three hours after the cow is tested we know what her status is and can make culling decisions immediately, thereby reducing the threat of spreading mycoplasma to another cow. We highly recommend this system for identifying all mastitis species rapidly."

"We invest heavily in mastitis testing, but were not satisfied with the turnaround, shipping samples out, and eventually getting results back allowed the contagious organisms too much time to infect other cows. So I was very interested when I saw the Acu-POLARIS at Empire Farm Days. All in all, a great product with excellent support behind it."

“With Acumen Detection, we are able to help clients identify mastitis-causing pathogens much sooner. Instead of waiting several days for lab results, they have the knowledge that allows them to take action before the next milking. The cow can be treated faster or culled faster, depending on the specific pathogen. Either way, it's an economic win-win for the farmer”

"We've been using the Acumen system and are impressed by its speed and accuracy. By doing the tests ourselves, we've been able to make culling and treatment decisions in matter of hours, not days."
