OPSIS LiquidLINE provides analytical solutions for fisheries and fish farms as well as for laboratories analyzing fish meal.
The release of amines such as trimethylamine (TMA), dimethylamine (DMA) and ammonia from decomposing fish, are collectively known as total volatile basic nitrogen (TVB-N). TVB-N is one of the most widely used methods today to estimate the degree of decomposition of the fish. The reference method involves steam distillation and OPSIS LiquidLINE has solutions for this.
Crude Protein Determinations
OPSIS LiquidLINE has solutions for determination of Kjeldahl (TKN) protein following standard methods. Examples are Protein in seafood, fishmeal, fish and other marine products.
Total Fat Determinations
OPSIS LiquidLINE provides instruments to determine total fat according to the standard methods. The sample is hydrolysed and thereafter extracted in hot solvents. Examples are fat in smoked trout, surimi and fish meal.
Crude Fat Determinations
OPSIS LiquidLINE provides instruments to determine crude fat with hot solvent extraction. Example of this anlaysis is fat in fish meal.
