ARACUS classic - amino acid analyzer

ARACUS classic - With this amino acid analyzer up to 60 different amino acids can be dedected. The instrument is currently available for the measurement of a total of 18 amino acids - 8 essential and 10 non-essential.

Pellet laboratory press type 14-175

Thanks to an ERDF grant in 2017, a new laboratory pelleting press for the production of poultry, pig and fish/shrimp feeds could be purchased at the Professorship of Nutritional Physiology and Animal Nutrition together with the Professorship of Aquaculture and Sea-Ranching.

The pelleting press allows the production of pelleted feeds based on vegetable components with pellet diameters of 2 to 4 mm. In contrast to the industry, where batches are produced immediately in the range of tonnages, the pelleting plant allows the production of smaller batches in the experimental range from 50 kg. Thus, feeding trials can be implemented promptly, quickly and according to the respective trial planning.
