DNAFoil® A2 Cow Test: SwissDeCode’s Newest Product

A Swiss foodtech company is launching a rapid test that would allow dairy farms to identify A2 milk-producing cows.

SwissDeCode is launching the DNAFoil® A2 Cow Test to answer the growing demands for A2 milk testing. The rapid kit allows farmers and companies to test their cows independently to identify A2 milk-producing cows. It is a highly accurate test that uses tail hair samples from cows to detect the presence of the A1 beta-casein allele. Providing all necessary material, the all-in-one test can be performed on-site, even by non-experts. The reliable and easily-interpretable results are available in 45 minutes, including approximately 15 minutes hands-on time. This significantly shortens the time to get results compared to current analytical methods.

New Addition to the A2 Family of Tests 

The DNAFoil® A2 Cow Test is an addition to the A2 family of tests after last year’s launch of DNAFoil® A2 Cow Milk, which helps assess the purity of batches of A2 milk. By offering products that are useful to breeders, farms and processing companies, these tests can potentially secure the authenticity and transparency of a large part of the A2 milk supply chain. 

A2 Milk: A Growing Profitable Market

Dairy companies worldwide are motivated to produce A2 milk to respond to the consumer demand for a perceived healthier alternative to conventional dairy. As the interest in A2 milk grows, the milk industry faces an increasing need for proving the authenticity of the products they are offering.

By putting this powerful tool in the hands of farmers, we are helping them bring better milk products to market and enabling pure A2 supply chains and efficient herd management.
