Mobile NIR Spectroscopy Solution for Animal Feed Analysis

Jan 25 2022

A portable NIR solution that provides customers with a fast and reliable on-site analysis of animal feed and ingredients has been announced by BASF Animal Nutrition and trinamiX GmbH.

By significantly miniaturising conventional NIR spectroscopy, the trinamiX' Mobile Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy Solution provides a high-performance 'lab in the pocket'. Together with BASF, the company is now using their solution to accelerate and simplify feed analysis. The collaboration brings together BASF’s animal nutrition knowledge and trinamiX' expertise in mobile NIR spectroscopy. The result is a powerful, cloud-based combination of a handheld device, smartphone app, and customer portal which enables customers to receive relevant insights into the quality and nutritional value of samples at the push of a button. The solution thus enhances feed formulation and quality control. to address the industry's most complex challenges.

The new NIR solution covers a broad variety of samples, ranging from feed ingredients to finished feed to forage. It supports parameters that are crucial to feed quality and the wellbeing of livestock, including moisture, protein, fat, and energy.

Measuring a sample takes less than a minute and can be performed on the spot. The results are instantly displayed in the smartphone app and are permanently accessible via trinamiX’ web-based customer portal for further evaluation.

Using our mobile NIR solution, feed millers, nutritionists, and farmers get a fast and independent solution to guarantee the quality of animal diets," said Manuel Rez, Director Product Management Performance Ingredients & Marketing at BASF Animal Nutrition.

"By combining accurate results with the flexibility of a portable device which fits into your pocket, we are paving the way for an efficient and reliable approach to feeding," explained Nils Mohmeyer, Head of Business Development and Sales Spectroscopy at trinamiX. "Our customers no longer need to send samples to the laboratory. Instead, the laboratory comes to them," he added.
