Abstract:

Studies were made in order to assess the significance of the results obtained in the California mastitis test. Besides the known wetting agents, urea, guanidin hydrochloride, sodium salicylate, heparin solution, and sodium desoxycholate may also react in the California test. The use of a urea-sodium dodecyl sulfate as a reagent is recommended, since it allows better differentiation than solutions of the pure wetting agent. Author
