Full Combination Package

(FULL) F24+BE, F24U+C, F5U+V, & F7 analyses on the same sample: $240 $200

RECOMMENDATIONS:

 Although run-to-run normalized results are available in our 24-hr analyses, ruminal fermentation is ideal for comparing multiple samples side-by-side on an individual run.

In vitro analyses can also be valuable for testing variations on a sample, such as ingredient substitutions, supplements, enzymes, or pre-treatments.

Multiple Sample Submissions: Clients also receive a group report (in vitro and in vivo) and group graph (in vitro) when submitting two or more samples for the same analysis on the same run.

For starch digestibility analysis, the 5 hr in vitro, unbagged or 7 hr in vivo are preferable to the 24 hr.

Protein digestion on unbagged analyses reports low due to offsetting microbial protein production (which can be measured directly as an add-on to the 24 hr in vitro bagged). Thus protein digestion is best evaluated in vivo.

Nutritional percent changes and some DM corrections are determined by NIR. NIR costs are covered by GHC Labs, unless you wish to have the original pre-run sample NIR report, which can be ordered separately.
