Aquafeed Analyser

The Aquafeed Analyzer is a complete solution for finished aquafeed production and feed ingredints.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing segment in the global feed manufacturing industry. NIR calibrations can be used to ensure the high protein diets required for maximum fish growth are delivered without wasting any expensive ingredients. In less than a minute, our NIR systems provide simultaneous results for moisture, protein, fat, fiber, starch, ash, and other parameters. Our Aquafeed Analyzer is ideal for every step in the aquafeed manufacturing process, including:

  • Raw material testing to guide proper ration supplementation
  • Raw material testing to control meal formulation
  • Raw material testing to optimize least cost formulation
  • Monitoring and controlling mixers and optimizing the addition of expensive ingredients
  • Monitoring and controlling moisture levels in extruders and driers
  • Verifying production batch values
  • Verifying and documenting finished feed label claims

Unity Aquafeed Analyzer packages are complete solutions ready for the analysis of feed ingredients and finished feed for fresh water and marine aquaculture. 

The Unity Scientific Aquafeed Analyzer is based on the SpectraStar XT, the next generation high performance NIR analyzer based on the TRUE ALIGNMENT® Spectroscopy technology. The SpectraStar XT incorporates a rotating top window (RTW) system for the ultimate in sampling flexibility, allowing the customer to make measurements of all finished feed and feed ingredients. The SpectraStar XT’s quick analysis time provides real-time feedback that allows the process to be controlled, optimizing the process and providing rapid payback.


The Unity Aquafeed Analyzer is powered by the INGOT calibration package from Aunir. This package includes a full suite of calibrations for finished aquafeed and feed ingredients.  Calibrations are included for both freshwater and marine finished feed as  over 70 different plant and animal-based ingredients.  The INGOT calibration package covers virtually all ingredients used in aquaculture.

All INGOT calibrations are backed by Aunir’s 30 years of experience in the field and comes with a performance guarantee. Calibration experts are on call to specifically tailor the calibrations to our customer’s needs.


The Aquafeed Analyzer is fast, allowing for 100% measurement of incoming ingredients and finished feed.  These analytical data form the basis for effective least cost formulation and also results in more consistent feed and increased animal performance.  The Unity Aquafeed Analyzer allows for complete control of the mill, maximizing profits and providing fast payback.
