Ambic presents udder health research at British Mastitis Conference.

Ambic has published the results of three research projects it has conducted over a five-year period in collaboration with The Dairy Group on different teat sanitisation methods.  The results were presented in a paper and two posters displayed at the recent British Mastitis Conference (  which was held in Worcester on 7th November 2018.

The paper, which compared the three teat sanitisation methods, was presented by Dr Brian Pocknee of The Dairy Group ( and provoked some useful discussion, as did two posters, one presenting the results of the research into teat coverage for dipping, the other providing a comparison of the three methods investigated – manual teat spraying using a vacuum operated teat sprayer, manual teat dipping using a dip cup and automated teat spraying on a rotary milking platform using Ambic’s Locate’n’Spray system™.

Ambic Introduces Upgrade to its Dip Cup Range

Ambic is updating its dip cup range with the addition of an innovative new Uptake Tube Adaptor which fits to the bottom of the uptake tube. It ensures that minimal teat dip chemical is left in the bottom of the dip cup bottle and prevents the uptake tube from ‘bottoming out’ when the dip cup is depressed to dispense teat dip chemical.

The Uptake Tube Adaptor is a particularly useful feature when higher added value, high viscosity barrier type teat dips or two part chemical formulations are used where it is important to minimise chemical wastage.

The new Uptake Tube Adaptor is compatible with both uptake tube sizes used in the Ambic range and will be included with all relevant Ambic models from September onwards (excluding ADC/100 StandardDipper™, ADC/130 FoamDipper™ which has foaming insert in the uptake tube and ADC/160 UniDipper™).

The new Uptake Tube Adaptor is available as a spare part in packs of 10 – part number ADC/001.

Addition of Ribs to the PortaSpray Nozzle

The moulding used to produce the standard PortaSpray nozzle (models RA4, RA40, RA2 and RA20 has been modified by the addition of ribs to the main body of the moulding, as shown in the illustration below. The ribs improve the moulding process as well as making the nozzles easier to screw into place on the spray trigger.

Ambic launches new, improved AIAlert™ Extra Heat Detectors

Ambic is coming to market with a new, improved self-adhesive heat detector with improved sticking power and improved visibility, based on new patented ‘Channel and Chamber’ technology. The unique design of AiAlert™ Extra allows both side panels of the detector to ‘colour up’ after the central pressure sensitive bubble section has been activated by the pressure exerted on the cow by bulling behaviour. The detector has a built-in time delay mechanism which means it requires approximately 3 seconds of mounting activity before it is activated.

In Heat? Yes, but how far?

Subsequent mounts force the dye through channels into the chambered side panels. This gives the farmer increased visibility and an even stronger indication that multiple mounts have taken place.

If the dye has not migrated to the side panels it may be that the cow has only recently come into heat and insemination might be best left to the next milking, however, if the side panels are fully coloured the cow has most likely been bulling for some period of time and insemination may need to take place sooner.

Key features:

  • New, Improved self-adhesive design for superior adhesive strength
  • Simple yet effective application – minimal preparation and no messy glue
  • No pre-heating of patch required in cold conditions
  • Progressive indication of mounting heat activity
  • No experience required to interpret reading
  • Moulds easily over the cow’s backbone
  • Large surface area for better adhesion and improved visibility
  • Time-delay module focuses on true mounting heat to minimise false positives
  • One person application
  • Available in packs of 10 and 40

Ambic Introduces New MultiFoamer Plus™ To Its Foaming Dip Cup Range

In response to customer demand for an improved foaming dip cup with the ability to adjust the foam quality to suit the characteristics of the particular foaming chemical being used, Ambic has developed a new premium version of its MultiFoamerfoaming dip cup which has the following key features:

  • Two woven meshes for primary foam generation
  • New, third stainless steel mesh welded into the body of the dip cup to optimise the foam structure in the final foam formation phase
  • Set of three different screw-in mixer valves to vary the ratio of air to chemical in order to be able to make the foam either wetter or drier, thus varying the amount of chemical applied

Like the original MultiFoamer™, the new MultiFoamer Plus™ is easily dismantled for ease of cleaning between uses and has a protected air intake to minimise particulate contamination.

Customised versions of the new MultiFoamer Plus™ are available to suit individual foaming teat dip chemicals. Consult Ambic for further details.

EasiFoamer update released to the market

Ambic has released an update to the EasiFoamer which includes a number of product improvements and new features designed to improve the overall functionality of the system and to facilitate installation.

  • Firmware revisions include amendments to the settings parameters for Sleep Mode and Run Time
  • The bore of the peristaltic pump tubes has been reduced to reduce the number of pump start/stops during operation to reduce the overall load on the pressure switch
  • A Non-Return Valve with uptake filter has been added to the system to ensure the pump(s) stay primed at all times
  • In-line filters have been added to protect each of the liquid non-return valves in the system from contamination as an additional feature
  • A ‘Quick Start’ Guide will be included with all future systems to highlight common installation errors and to provide additional assistance with the installation process
  • Op Notes have been updated to reflect the above changes
