MILFORD, MA (March 23, 2021) — KPM Analytics Inc. announced today that it has signed a multi-year license agreement with AB Vista, the feed additives division of AB Agri Limited.  AB Vista’s Aunir group is the global leader in the development and supply of near infrared reflectance (NIR) spectroscopy calibrations.  KPM Analytics is a leader in NIR solutions with a full range of analyzers and sensors that address laboratory, at-line and in-process quality inspection, and R&D applications in the food and agriculture markets.  The AB Vista INGOT calibration library is the world’s largest with over 350,000 analyzed samples and over 4 million datapoints. Aunir has built this collection of NIR calibration libraries over a 30-year period with a primary focus on animal feed, feed ingredients, forages, pet food, milled flours, and more.  NIR analysis is a fast, reliable, and cost-effective method for determining the nutritional, chemical, and physical properties of various ingredients and products. Additionally, it eliminates the time and expense of traditional methods such as wet chemistry and ovens for composition and moisture analysis.
