New platform for online NIR calibration of feed

AusScan Online is set to revolutionise feed ingredient near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) calibrations, thanks to a licensing agreement between the Cooperative Research Centre for High Integrity Australian Pork (Pork CRC) and Aunir.

According to Pork CRC CEO, Dr Roger Campbell and Aunir technical director, Chris Piotrowski, AusScan Online users no longer need to load the calibrations onto their NIR machine now they can upload spectra files to the new website and run the calibrations over the internet. "But the most exciting aspect, is AusScan's ability to offer access to its wide range of in vivo energy calibrations for pigs, broilers and ruminants," they said.

Aunir will also maintain and update the calibrations to ensure users enjoy access to the very best information to suit their businesses and operational needs.

The expected usual proximate analyses will be offered, plus a range of non-starch polysaccharide and amino acid analyses, including total, reactive and standardised ileal digestible lysine.

Users of AusScan Online can analyse their wheat, barley, sorghum, triticale, soya and canola samples via the website.
