Project description

The goal of this R & D project is to strengthen the customer Nutriad with rapid mycotoxin analysis test (MBA) which can be used in the production plant of its customers (feed mill, farm, etc.) to a decision so quickly forms about the level of contamination of various mycotoxins in animal feed ingredients such as com, wheat, barley, soybean, rapeseed, DDGS, sunflower tapioca, rice, rice bran, wheat semolina and complete feed (pelleted / meal matrices). This information will Nutriad can quickly define better strategies through its customer service to counter the negative effects of mycotoxins through the use of contaminated feed ingredients.
