Gerber test

For fat (cream) in milk. The milk is mixed with sulphuric acid (or detergent) and amyl alcohol; the protein and carbohydrate are dissolved, and the fat separates out. The reaction is carried out in a Gerber bottle with a thin graduated neck, in which the fat collects for measurement after centrifugation.
