The foundation is set: About Sano Labor
Sano Labor cooperates with global leader in feed analysis, CVAS
Latest standards and feed analysis according to the proven CNCPS model with Sano Laboratory
Feed analysis is not the same as any other feed analysis. Sano Laboratory works with the latest standards and has therefore partnered with the worldwide leader in feed analysis: Cumberland Valley Analytical Services (CVAS). As a global market leader in the field of feed analysis, CVAS also offers feed analysis according to the CNCPS model.
Sano Laboratory powered by Cumberland Valley Analytical Services
Founded by Ralph Ward in Maryland, USA, Cumberland Valley Analytical Services (CVAS) is now a worldwide market leader in feed analysis. CVAS has satellite locations globally and possesses extensive expertise in the field of analysis. The feed analysis laboratory offers, among other services, analyses according to the CNCPS standard. This includes a more detailed examination of basic feed digestibility, amino acid and fatty acid content. CVAS is distinguished by its high-quality, fast, accurate, and affordable feed analyses. For SDN, there is a dedicated CVAS laboratory in the Croatian Sano facility in Popovača. It is equipped and operates according to CVAS guidelines, following the high American standards of analysis and quality. Sample preparation and analysis using state-of-the-art NIR technology take place in the Croatian laboratory. CVAS evaluates the obtained NIR data and calculates the feed components. The standardized procedure and plausibility check of measured values ensure accurate analysis results.
Opening of the European Laboratory in Croatia
The Sano Laboratory for European feed analysis is located in the Sano facility in Popovača, Croatia, and is equipped and organized according to CVAS guidelines. It operates based on high American standards of analysis and quality. The Sano laboratory staff have received intensive training in the United States. Sample preparation and analysis using state-of-the-art NIR technology take place in the Sano Laboratory. Subsequently, CVAS evaluates the obtained NIR data and calculates the feed components. Standardized procedures, verification of obtained values, and comparison with regional reference values ensure accurate analysis results.
The Sano Laboratory was ceremonially opened on October 22 and offers two different types of analyses: NIR+ and NIR WET.
