Particle size and characterization analyses provide the agricultural industry with valuable information and help ensure that regulations are followed. The expert services available at Particle Technology Labs can help manufacturers improve the quality of pharmaceuticals for veterinary use, animal feed, soil drainage, fertilizer potency, dust control, and more.
Veterinary Medicines – the stability, aesthetics, rate of absorption, and bioavailability of veterinary pharmaceuticals are greatly affected by the size of the particles that comprise any powder or dispersion. These medicines are analyzed in the same ways as medicines for human use and are subject to similar regulations. Particle Technology Labs offers expert knowledge and analytical experience to achieve the highest quality of results for manufacturers within the veterinary pharmaceutical industry.
Livestock Feed – particle size and characterization testing such as bulk and tap density as well as powder flowability analysis of processed animal feed can help manufacturers understand the way their finished product will behave during packaging, handling, and digestion.
Soil, Fertilizer, and Chemical Testing – many of the products used in the agricultural industry can benefit from the information provided by particle characterization. The particle size and behavior of soil predicts factors such as stability, drainage, retention, nutrient-holding capacity, and more. Fertilizers are required to meet a minimum frequency of measurements to ensure quality and due to safety requirements regarding dust, the monitoring of fine particulate is necessary. Agrochemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and nematicides can also be analyzed to ensure they meet quality and safety requirements.
