New FeedCheck Express offers on-site rapid test for feed enzymes

Posted: January 27, 2015

The North American livestock feed industry has a new, state-of-the-art option for rapid and reliable on-site testing for in-feed enzymes.

Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. (CBS Inc.), an innovation-focused company that manufactures a wide range of products used in feed, food, industrial and environmental applications, has launched FeedCheck Express – a uniquely designed quality assurance tool that puts the power of fast, accurate enzyme detection into customer hands.

"The animal feeding sector today is more dynamic, multi-layered, sophisticated and fast moving than ever before," says Rob Patterson, CBS Inc. Technical Service Manager. "Quick and precise enzyme detection is critical to meet rising demand for enhanced quality assurance in this rapidly evolving marketplace."

FeedCheck Express provides a user-friendly approach with advanced methodology that takes on-site testing for in-feed enzymes to a new level of convenience and value, says Mark Peters, CBS Inc. Manager of Sales and Marketing. "It offers a dependable and practical assay approach that is second-to-none for on-site, in-feed testing.

"The kit is very simple and straightforward, with instructions anyone involved in the feed operation or livestock facility can apply. It is compatible with a broad range of feedstuffs and can be applied at various stages to suit the needs of each customer."

FeedCheck Express confirms the presence and activity of enzymes in both complete feeds and pelleted feeds, says Patterson. Feed samples do not require grinding or other processing, and mash or pellets can be included in the reaction vials.

The FeedCheck Express technology is also backed by CBS Inc. laboratory services and the company and its affiliates' broad network of customer support. This includes a full range of both quantitative and qualitative testing and analysis options. Wilbur-Ellis Company is a key CBS Inc. marketing and distribution partner for the U.S. market.

For further details and to order a FeedCheck Express kit, customers can contact their local CBS Inc. representative or distributor. FeedCheck Express is also featured this week at the CBS Inc. booth (booth number A547) at the International Poultry Expo (IPE) in Atlanta.
