Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence
Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) provides qualitative and quantitative analyses of material composition and checks for potential contaminants in trace mineral premixes.
The EDXRF spectrometer analyzes specific elements present in a sample to determine the concentration of trace minerals, verifying that they were not over or under-formulated, ensuring that they are safe for our beloved pets. As a non-destructive analytical technique, EDXRF provides a sustainable method of analyzing bulk and trace analyses of inorganic substances, minerals and trace elements.
When outsourced, inorganic test results could take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to process. After Trouw Nutrition invested in an analyzer and obtained certification for its staff expert to perform the tests, EDXRF results take only a few days.
