The range of services provided by the new center include wet chemistry analysis of amino acid content in raw materials, compound feed, premixes and physiological samples, wet chemistry analysis of supplemented amino acids and near infrared reflectance spectroscopy analytical services for prediction of amino acid content in raw materials. In addition to providing nutrient analysis of feed and feed ingredients, the analytical center will offer feed manufacturers the opportunity to be trained in amino acid analytics and to learn how to best apply this knowledge into production for more consistent, high-quality feed leading to improved animal production, better sustainability and increased profitability, according to Evonik.
