Animal Nutrition

Nutritional analysis of animal feed and ingredients

Anytime, anywhere – with a Near-Infrared (NIR) lab in your pocket

Feed formulation and continuous quality control of raw materials are time-consuming and tedious – leaving room for inefficiencies. Thus, there is a need in the feed industry for increased flexibility and tailored solutions.

This is why BASF Animal Nutrition teamed up with trinamiX GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of BASF SE developing and selling cutting-edge 3D vision and infrared sensing solutions. With their Mobile Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy Solutions trinamiX makes this well-established industrial method affordable and accessible beyond factory and laboratory applications. Jointly with BASF Animal Nutrition this ‘lab in the pocket’ has now been launched for the feed industry, providing fast and reliable on-site analysis of forages, animal feed ingredients, and finished feeds.

With this partnership, BASF is expanding its digital solutions portfolio for the animal nutrition industry. It provides customers with solutions that go beyond feed to address the industry's most complex challenges.
