Chr. Hansen A/S aims to provide a credible milk antibiotic testing process via an advanced hardware testing kit paired with a user-friendly mobile app and data management system.
Global producer of natural solutions, Chr. Hansen A/S, works to make milk antibiotic testing more accessible and more importantly, reliable. They wanted to develop a process that can be improved by digital tools. Some of the goals they were looking to achieve are to reduce fraudulent tests, get timely accurate data, and make the process user-friendly.

Monstarlab was tapped to create the solutions that complement their newly developed test kits designed to get unique test information and with Bluetooth and GPS technologies built-in. A mobile app and a data management system software were developed by the team in just 3 month’s time.
Deployment of the mobile app and data management system MVP in just 3 months.

Looking to Modernise a Traditional Process

Using testing strips to check acceptable antibiotics levels in dairy products has been commonplace since the early 2000s. However, it has commonly been done manually and beleaguered with unfortunate reports of test results manipulation.

Chr. Hansen A/S developed a new testing kit that digitally identifies unique test strips on top of being infused with Bluetooth and GPS technologies. They needed a technology partner to develop the complementing software that will complete the digital milk testing process.

By using agile methodology, the team designed the user experience, user interfaces, and system architectures. Monstarlab built on their technology and designed digital tools that not only complement the new test kits but also enhance the overall experience for the users.
