Analysis of raw materials, additives, premixes used in feed composition or feed rations.


additives and premix analysis laboratory

This service allows the analysis of raw materials, additives, pre-mixes used in feed composition or feed rations, and forage. This step is essential to estimate the nutritional value of raw materials and validate the compliance of the manufactured feed. Laboratory support includes chemical analysis, proximal analysis, analysis of minerals, and cell wall constituents.

These benefits come in addition to the examination of the physical parameters of your feed: hardness, durability, grain size.

These services are the foundation of our laboratory support, dedicated to animal feed. Three other areas of expertise complete the offer of support.

1. NIR technology: setting our own calibrations, issuing analysis results within 24 hours after the reception of the sample. It is also possible to set up this technology in your own feed processing plants, through the following stages: advice on the acquisition of materials, a transfer of our know-how, the disposition of more than 20 calibrations of raw materials or feed.  

2. The dosage of enzymes in feed, pre-mixes or raw materials: phytase, xylanase, protease, amylase; control the stability of these enzymes according to the temperature of the granulation.

3. Analysis of forages: more than 5000 analyses a year, 18 criteria analysed.  The results of these analyses are automatically made available, sent by mail and immediately integrated into your rationing tools (Black Box Feed Tool).

With more than 13 000 samples analysed each year (raw materials, compound feed, forages, additives, pre-mix…) and close to 70 000 doses (40 different types),  the expertise of the TECHNA laboratory  in this domain  has been repeatedly demonstrated. The laboratory also has over 10 years of experience in NIR analysis technology. Also note its implication in the profession with its participation in the quality circuits of BIPEA) and within GERM, the reference of the corn sector.

It is possible to have the costs of this service covered, either whole or in part, depending on the level of commercial activity taken with us.

Laboratory support is available for all our customers who manufacture animal feed. Our interaction with clients ensures the reliability of our analyses and also contributes to the improvement of our methods and practices. The implementation of these analyses is an integral part of our service contracts. Support for costs is possible, total or partial, depending on the level of activity. The realisation of quality control plans and the implementation of technology control plans are also part of the possible services of our laboratory. Do not hesitate to contact our experts in formulation and feed manufacturing technology.
