Analytics by ISF Schaumann Research

As far as research is concerned, the development of customised analytical methods often forms the first step in any new project. The production of analytical results and reports is one of our most important tasks in our role as service and support provider for the quality control and assurance departments of our production facilities. Investigations focus on feedstuffs, silages, minerals, biogas fermenters and acids for preservation.

By clicking on the picture galleries, you can accompany us on a virtual tour of the laboratory and the technology centre and gain an insight into our work.

Our chemical analytics laboratories perform analyses of crude nutrients including protein, fibre, fat, sugar, starch, ash, ADF, NDF and the bulk and trace elements calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium etc.

Our physical/technical analytics department provides services including the determination of the rheological properties (flow properties, visco-elastic properties) of biogas fermenter slurry and other parameters such as the dissolving/settling behaviour of milk replacers. It also conducts various biogas trials and determines aerobic stability.
