TANGO FT-NIR Spectrometer for Feed and Grain Analysis

The cost of animal nutrition represents the largest operating cost for most commercial livestock producers. In order to maintain an optimum balance between feed costs and productivity, all feed ingredients should be analyzed for nutrient concentration and these values are then used to formulate the rations and required supplements.

The included feedstuffs, however, vary widely in composition, due to origin, seasonal changes or year. Fourier Transform Near Infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) provides a fast and effective solution for analyzing raw materials as well as finished feeds in order to optimize the production steps and monitor the final product quality.

Easy Sample Analysis with FT-NIR

Bruker Optics offers the most comprehensive range of FT-NIR solutions for quality control and formulation adjustments. Samples can be analyzed non-destructively in seconds, saving costs by reducing time and reagent use. Analyzing by FT-NIR in the lab or at-line close to the production requires just filling an easy-to clean cup with the solid sample and presenting it to the analyzer. Liquid samples like oils or molasses can be analyzed in disposable vials with the same spectrometer.
