Laboratory

The laboratory of Schothorst Feed Research analyses among others feedstuffs, feeds and animal material (excreta, blood, rumen fluid, meat and eggs). These analyses are performed for own research but also in commission of third parties. For some analyses the laboratory is certified according to GMP+ standards: GMP B10 laboratory testing. Of course are all analyses performed according to European requirements.

EXAMPLE OF PERFORMED ANALYSES

 

CHEMICAL ANLASES

  • Classical wet chemistry: among others the Weende analyes (moisture, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, crude ash, starch and sugar).
  • Instrumental analyses: minerals and gross energy

PHYSICAL ANALYSES

Analyses to measure product quality

  • Pellet hardness, particle size distribution (sieve fractions, wet and dry).
  • Egg quality parameters like eggshell thickness, eggshell strength, yolk/albumen ratio.

IN VITRO ANALYSES

With this analyses availability and/or degradation of different nutrients in animal feed can be determined (viscosity, protein and starch degradation)
