Microbiologist Joanna Fyans has joined milk testing company National
Milk Laboratories (NML) in its Paisley laboratory, taking on responsibility
for Mastitis ID and Bacto Breakdown testing under the Microcheck
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.
