Our wet chemistry methods allow us to accurately analyze all of the individual amino acids present in a raw material, premix, or compound feed, and our methods have been internationally recognized for their accuracy and precision. An example of this commitment to accuracy and precision is that two of the current AOAC Official Methods of Analysis for amino acids were developed by us at Evonik. For our customers and scientific institutes all over the world, we are the reference source for amino acids and provide a comprehensive amino acid database with AMINODat®. However, being the largest amino acid wet chemistry laboratory in the world is not enough; we also want to be the best.
That is why we participate in monthly “ring tests” with the other leading analytical laboratories around the world. These tests provide us with the opportunity to compare our AMINOLab® services and identify weaknesses, so that we can continue to provide the users of our lab with the most accurate and up-to-date amino acid analyzes available. Currently, our AMINOLab® service analyzes more than 21,000 samples of raw materials, premixes and complete feeds per year from all over the world for:
AMINOLab® is a powerful tool for raw material evaluation and selection and thus helps purchasers to make the right decisions. Supporting accurate least cost feed formulation and quality control in feed and livestock production are on the list of advantages for nutritionists, quality controllers and livestock production managers using AMINOLab® results. The amino acid variability in key ingredients can be reduced and thus the targets for amino acid contents in complete feeds require lower safety margins.The final step of controlling complete feed quality is the basis for predictable performance in livestock production.
