NIR Analysis

Printable PDF

Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR) is an important method in feed analysis that allows for rapid and cost effective
characterization of many important nutrients
Dairyland Laboratories, Inc. in a sample.  Using this method, Dairyland Laboratories' clients are able to receive same-day analysis of 10-20 nutrients for the same cost it would take to measure a single nutrient by wet chemistry.

In a nutshell, NIR feed analysis programs a computer to recognize individual nutrients in a feedstuff based upon the amount of light absorbed at each near infrared wavelength.  Programming a computer to recognize these nutrients requires large databases of samples that have been scanned by an NIR instrument and analyzed by traditional “wet chemistry” or reference analyzes.  

Providing accurate NIR analysis is a significant task that requires accurate reference analysis, precise sample handling procedures, technical expertise, and continuously updated databases.  With over 30 years of NIR experience and one of the industry’s most complete wet chemistry labs and largest databases of samples, Dairyland Laboratories and our affiliate laboratories are well positioned to provide accurate and timely NIR services.
