Taking Notes

In addition to collaborating on numerous projects over the years, our suite of NIRS analyses (% dietary crude protein, dietary digestible organic matter, fecal nitrogen and fecal phosphorus) has facilitated animal or natural resource studies of entities independent of Texas A&M University or its departments. 

While the bulk of our work has revolved around fecal profiling for nutritional purposes, we recognize the potential for NIRS applications in other areas and/or using other mediums of a less aromatic nature (manure pile humor) that keeps with the broader mission of the this lab: to develop tools/applications/knowledge that facilitates users to better manage/conserve natural resources. 
For publications, research, and details pertaining to our NIRS and NUTBAL technologies, please visit the Publications page.
For more information, please contact us, as we are always interested in further advancing research using NIRS technology. Please note that under certain circumstances, a large shipment of research samples may take longer than the standard protocol of three days. We suggest contacting us ahead of time in order to help meet project deadlines.
