NOVI SAD - The first laboratory for testing the quality of milk in Serbia authorized by the Serbian Agriculture Ministry opened at the Faculty of Agriculture in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad and tested the first milk samples on Tuesday. A total of 800 samples of milk were brought to be tested in the laboratory on the first day of its operation, Mile Pecinov, who is in charge of supervising the laboratory testing, told Tanjug. 

 It takes only about 30 seconds to process a sample, as the laboratory has got the latest high-tech equipment from Denmark and the Netherlands, said Pecinov, adding that the lab's maximum capacity is 350 samples per hour. The number of samples that is brought to the laboratory will depend on the territory from which the samples are taken, and they will be arriving in greatest numbers from the Vojvodina cities of Subotica, Sombor and Vrbas, as these regions have the most cattle, he said. Pecinov pointed out that the milk control laboratory at the Agriculture Faculty of Novi Sad Animal Husbandry Department was opened to implement cattle raising programs and carry out controls of individual milk samples. 

 Although the testing started at the lab on Tuesday, it has not yet been officially opened. Snezana Trivunovic, director of the Department of Animal Husbandry, said that the opening date will be determined later. Photo Tanjug, J. Pap
