Welcome to Sciantec –
It Pays to Measure
In today’s fast moving business environment evidence-based decision making is essential to good management. But that is by no means the only reason that it pays to measure – proving compliance with regulatory requirements, demonstrating that customers’ quality expectations have been met and checking internal performance to pave the way for continuous improvement are equally important.
Sciantec has the ability to assess, quantify, evaluate and appraise the raw materials for animal feedstuffs, finished feeds, pharmaceutical compounds, pre-mixes, forages, combinable grains and pulses. Animal nutrition activities include feeds for all agricultural livestock, companion animals, the equine sector and aquaculture. Along with our sister laboratory, Sciantec provides a full microbiological testing service for the group.
All this makes Sciantec Analytical the UK’s foremost independent and internationally accredited analytical laboratory specialising in animal nutrition, health, feed, forage and combinable crops testing.
Sciantec Analytical operates from purpose-built premises in Cawood, North Yorkshire. The company has over 30 years experience in testing animal feeds and forages (although its origins as a specialist animal nutrition laboratory go back to the 1900s). Today the laboratory uses a combination of extensive wet chemistry along with NIR technology which is supported by on-going validation. Sciantec also provides specialist grain testing and has a microbiology facility approved by DEFRA for the testing of animal by-products.
In total we offer over 600 different ‘off-the-shelf’ analytical tests. In addition we regularly work with customers providing advice on sampling and testing schedules, setting-up mixer trials and conducting statistical summaries to allow review and assessment of quality control programmes.
Our customer base includes major animal feed and pet feed manufacturers, farming consultancies, grain merchants, veterinary groups, pharmaceutical companies, poultry and pig producers, anaerobic digestate plants and other specialist laboratories to name a few.
