Optimizing crop yields by determining nutrient levels in soils, plants and feeds.
Astoria-Pacific offers the modern-day agricultural laboratory the means to monitor ions/nutrients in water, soils, plants and feed/silage. Our bench-top analyzers have been designed to be cost-effective, and built for the rapid analysis of your samples. For instance, tests like Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ortho-phosphate, TKN, Total Phosphorus, etc., have analysis rates of 45 – 120 samples/hour. Built-in QA protocols in the FASPac and rAPID software programs ensure years of accurate, reliable testing!
Select from our numerous methods lists. Many of the common AOAC, US.EPA and Standard Methods are available on our platforms. We also have alternative methods available that could be perfect for screening and/or research purposes. A research laboratory, as an example, can monitor Selenium (a test normally reported with the use of AA or ICP analyzers) on an Astoria Analyzer, thereby taking advantage of our low-level (0.1 – 10 µg/L) working range and/or our fast (60 samples/hour) rate of analysis.
Our company prides itself in offering the best technical and customer support in the industry. Find out today how Astoria-Pacific International can help your lab grow its profitability.
