TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICES
Both, raw materials and balanced feed can be contaminated with mycotoxins since weather conditions worldwide promote the growth of toxigenic fungi in cereals. This service provides a general and accurate idea of the feed contamination and helps to apply an adequate program for mycotoxin prevention. Mycotoxins that can be analyzed are: Aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G3), Fumonisins (B1, B2 and B3), Nivalenol, Ochratoxin, T2 Toxin, Vomitoxin, Zearalenol and Zearalenone.
Once the result of the mycotoxin analysis has been obtained, the data can be introduced in the Silicoglycidol calculator, that will show the exact dose of binder to be used. Silicoglycidol dose will depend on the degree of contamination, and additionally, the calculator takes into account synergic and additive effects between mycotoxins in order to grant the protection.
Fungal contamination analysis service
It consists of analyzing contaminated feed samples to identify and quantify the type of fungi and determine its toxigenic potential. Once the fungal concentration is determined, the proper preservation measures can be implemented, and feed/grain deterioration will be avoided.
Preservative/biocide dosage calculator
Thanks to the results of the fungal analysis of the feed, and considering the percentage of moisture and broken grain in the samples, is possible to develop a strategy to prevent fungal growth, that will include the necessary dose of preservative or biocide to avoid microbial growth.
Feed formulation service
Delta Labs specialized technicians and nutritional advisers review and correct feed formulations to improve the efficiency and cost of balanced feed.
Return of Investment (ROI analysis)
This tool offered by Delta Labs Lab evaluates, in a simple and visual way, the economic performance of two diets and compared them. Productive performance results and the cost of each diet must be supplied to perform the analysis.
The ROI analysis can compare two diets in order to make objective decisions based on their economic impact. Besides, this tool can be complemented with the Delta Labs technical advice service in order to consider the impact of the diets on animal health and welfare, too.
Please, contact Delta Labs Lab to start using the ROI analysis tool.
Diagnostic service by images
Through this service customers can send the pictures of necropsies along with a brief description of the problem detected in the farm. Our qualified veterinary team, which is specialized in pathology, will review the case and report solutions and/or recommendations for treatment/prevention of the problems.
Our veterinary technicians and professors from Universities that have an agreement with Delta Labs, perform technical visits to the farms in order to provide clinical advice that will allow to detect the main threats that can affect farms and lead to losses in productivity.
We have 10 bibliographic sources, available to customers to consult the multiple scientific articles. In addition, an extensive atlas of pathology in Veterinaria Digital is available for the customers. This atlas allows customers to search for documentary support and images as support to diagnose the problems found in farms.
