Acronym LUCI (Reference Number: 11295)
Duration 03/07/2017 - 31/12/2019
Project Topic The goal is to develop an analytical instrument (sensor), and reagents, for automated monitoring of the health of the cow in the dairy industry, through on-line analyses of the somatic cell count in the milk for each individual milking of the cow.
