Evonik has launched AMINONIR® Portable, a mobile NIR service for amino acid calibrations using Viavi’s MicroNIR handheld spectrometer. AMINONIR Portable enables the determination of energy, nutrients in feed raw materials and feed, as well as amino acids in feed raw materials, on-site and independent of a laboratory. The hand-held device connects with the user’s tablet or cell phone and only requires mobile signal reception and a handful of feed or raw material without further sample preparation to determine their quality at almost any location within minutes. AMINONIR Portable can be used to analyse over 40 different feed raw materials and feed mixtures for broilers, laying hens, pigs and fish. It significantly extends the application of NIR spectroscopy, which Evonik has been offering as AMINONIR services for 25 years.
