Mastitis ID investigates the mastitis pathogens in individual cow milk samples and the Bacto Breakdown service is used to assess plant and cow hygiene after a high bactoscan result in a bulk milk sample.

Originally from Perth, Joanne graduated with a first class degree in biochemistry and microbiology from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. She was awarded a top prize for achieving excellent results in her research projects.

NML has two laboratories, at Wolverhapton and Paisley and carries out more than 85% of Britain’s milk quality testing for payment purposes. Both sites have dedicated laboratory facilities for carrying out more detailed disease testing used in NML’s Healthcheck and Microcheck services. These facilities are available to vets, producers and milk buyers.
