Forage laboratory via NIR and EDXRF minerals in association with CVAS (Cumberland Valley Analytical Services)
Near Infrared Reflectance spectroscopy (NIR) allows for rapid determination of multiple nutrients and characteristics of a feed or forage. It is a fast, cost effective process available for evaluation of most forage types. This determination depends mostly on the support of a chemical laboratory providing accurate robust calibrations of each component and type of feed.
Given the volume and breadth of chemistry evaluations that CVAS provides as the largest chemical laboratory of forages in the USA, their calibrations are the most robust of the market.
In addition, from September 2019, we offer mineral analysis by Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF), a fast and accurate method to detect minerals on any type of feed.
Type of analysis that we carry out:
NIR NUTRITION ANALYSIS AND MIXED MINERAL DETERMINATIONS
MINERAL ANALYSIS VIA XRF
OTHER NUTRITION ANALYSIS
FTIR MILK ANALYSIS
FTIR Milk Laboratory
Determination of the following parameters via FTIR, with calibrations done by a certified chemistry laboratory: Fat, Protein, Casein, Lactose, Total solids, Non-fat solids, Urea, Conductivity, pH and Cryoscopic constant.
Analysis of fatty acids in milk is available under Barbano Lab calibrations from Cornell University. This allows the differentiation of fatty acids de novo, mixed, and preformed and its practical application to evaluate ruminal function and NEFA control in post-partum.
Hematology and biochemistry laboratory
Determination on the following blood samples:
