Farm feed manufacturers can now perform near-instant feed quality analysis with a new pre-calibrated handheld instrument, designed to help feed manufacturers identify out-of-specification ingredients before introducing them into the production process.

The handheld Thermo Scientific microPHAZIR AG analyzer allows manufacturers to perform on-site analysis to test ingredients and finished feeds to optimize nutrient formulations, reduce manufacturing costs and improve consistency.

“The feed manufacturing industry is facing increased cost pressure and requires technology that delivers timely and accurate results,” said Michael Gray, business development director, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The microPHAZIR AG analyzer offers lab-quality performance in a handheld platform, allowing analysis anywhere in the manufacturing process and throughout the supply chain.”

The microPHAZIR AG analyzer is pre-calibrated with the industry leading INGOT™ calibration for feed ingredients, providing accurate analysis of protein, moisture, oil, ash, fiber, starch and other parameters. 

The microPHAZIR AG analyzer offers a number of benefits:

• Easy to operate, requiring only a few minutes of basic operating instruction;
• Simple data reporting, since results can be directly exported into a spreadsheet, laboratory information management systems, or feed control systems.

The instrument employs near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR), already a preferred quality control technology in the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries, which works by exposing samples to various wavelengths of infrared light. The absorption of the light is then used to quantify various quality attributes of the sample. By automatically comparing sample data to libraries of known infrared spectra, NIR spectrometers are designed to provide accurate materials analysis in real time.
