It has the necessary instruments to carry out the analyzes by traditional wet chemical methods and as a very useful tool it has N.I.R System technology equipment. The latter provides great performance, speed, accuracy and repeatability. It is extremely useful when results are urgently required, especially when carrying out plant tests.
State-of-the-art digester and distiller, VELP brand. It consists of first digesting the Proteins and then steam distillation and quantifying the Ammonia produced to calculate the Nitrogen and/or protein content in the sample.
Predictive, agile and precise method to determine the content of Proteins, Fats, Moisture, Ashes, Fiber, etc in Raw Materials and Food. We have state-of-the-art FOSS and BRUKER brand equipment.
AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES brand equipment for the determination of Vitamins and assessment of active ingredients in Raw Materials and Food.
We have a spectrophotometer for the assessment of elements such as phosphorus and active ingredients in Raw Materials and Food.
Both the Nutritionist technicians and the Laboratory specialists assist clients in the correct manufacture of their balanced foods, and in everything inherent to Quality Control.
For all this, all the raw materials involved and the products obtained with them are analyzed. It applies both to own productions and those of clients.
The laboratory staff, with extensive experience in manufacturing control, attends the plants or mills to carry out the tests with which the operating diagnosis is made.
In case of finding abnormalities, it proposes variants and solutions. As a routine, samples of raw materials are taken from the plant and food samples from the farms, which are analyzed and the result returned as soon as possible.
Our laboratory has state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained personnel whose objective is to provide the services that our clients require and to carry out quality control of the products that CLADAN launches on the market.
