Feed analysis solutions supported by cutting-edge software

FOSS solutions include both instruments and software to provide rapid analysis in the laboratory, at-line or in-line with the highest possible accuracy and reliability.

Save $2.00 per tonne

Take advantage of NIR analysis at your feed plant. As an example, savings of at least $2.00 per tonne of soya meal can be made by matching protein targets more closely.

For integrators, further savings can be made by improving animals' feed conversion rate.

FOSS service and support

More than just an instrument, FOSS solutions are supported by a global network of more than 250 highly trained service engineers.
