About LabTek

LabTek is an analysis laboratory that contributes results to research at Biovit, at NMBU and to external clients.

LabTek offers:

To ensure the quality of our analyzes and the results we deliver, LabTek participates in the NEPT proficiency test twice a year

Dry matter, ash, NDF, ADF, ADL, AIA, CF, kjeldahl-N, starch, sugars, lactic acid, ethanol, methanol, crude fat, calorimetry (gross energy), elemental analyzes (C, H, tot-N, S, as well as various elements), amino acid analysis, FAME, methane, Volatile fatty acids (VFA) as well as various clinical analyses, and can develop new methods on demand.

LabTek has advanced analytical instruments at its disposal and can, as the research at Biovit and others demand it, develop new methods.
