The goal of our analytical chemistry team is to eradicate mineral deficiency death in animals throughout the UAE. After developing several analytic techniques, we have identified ways of producing optimal animal growth and function and have overcome the mineral deficiency problem in the region.
We offer you various services that are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of your animals. One of these is the testing of minerals and trace elements (Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Manganese) in biological specimens and animal feed.
Animal feed and water samples are also analysed for toxic heavy metals (Lead, Cadmium, Chromium, Arsenic, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Zinc) and anions which can cause serious illnesses in animals. We also conduct testing of different vitamins (B1, A, E, C, D3) to ensure your animals receive the proper nutrition to achieve optimal performance levels. Vitamin B1 is particularly important for the performance of racing camels.
The Analytical Chemistry department is equipped with the newest instruments. We have an iCAP 6000 series Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), iCE 3000 series flame and Zeeman furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) from Thermo Scientific, a High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with dual absorbance detector and multi wavelength fluorescence detector, a microwave labstation from Milestone and an ion chromatographic system from Sykam.
