Pet Food

When it comes to pet food, consumers expect top quality for their loved ones. Pet food regulations require 'guaranteed analysis' information on the label.

Bruker offers solutions based on FT-NIR spectroscopy for a fast and reliable quality control of incoming pet food ingredients as well as the finished pet food. Samples can be analyzed non-destructively in seconds, saving costs by reducing time and reagent use.

Analyzing by TANGO or MPA II in the lab or at-line close to production requires just filling an easy-to-clean cup with the solid sample and to present it to the analyzer.

A set of universal calibrations for the analysis of raw materials and finished products in the feed industry is available in cooperation with Aunir, the world leaders in NIR calibration development. These calibrations help you to achieve a superior quality control, leading to an enhanced performance of your products.

FT-NIR spectroscopy offers a rapid, accurate and non-destructive tool for the analysis of:

  • Moisture
  • Fat
  • Protein
  • Fiber
  • Ash

The following more specialized parameters are available if applicable:

  • Starch
  • Total Sugar
  • Digestibility NDF, ADF, NCGD
