Proximate Chemistry Testing


5 Days or Less


Beaconpoint Labs performs a variety of proximate chemistry analyses to verify batch quality control or food/beverage composition.

Beaconpoint Labs offers an extensive menu of proximate analyses such as Ash, Density, Protein, Moisture, FAT by NMR, Fiber, Chloride, pH, titratable acidity, and viscosity. We are continuously adding to this menu, so if you do not see a specific test request, please reach out directly to the lab. Below is additional information on key tests and reference methods.
Ash-AOAC 923.03
Moisture-AOAC 934.01
Protein-AOAC 968.06
Titratable Acidity

Beaconpoint Labs utilizes end point titration to report out the following titratable acidity analytes:

  • Acetic Acid
  • Citric Acid
  • Lactic Acid
  • Malic Acid
  • Oxalic Acid
  • Pyruvic Acid
Percent Fat

Beaconpoint Labs utilizes the ORACLE universal fat analyzer, which is a low resolution, timedomain NMR instrument (TD-NMR) to report out percent fat. The ORACLE uses a proprietary train of pulses, which not only provides sufficient resolution to separate the fat signal from the signal of other components, but also normalizes the fat response so any fat molecule results in a uniform signal.

Fatty Acids Panel-AOAC 996.06

Beaconpoint Labs has an extensive fatty acids panel that is run on GC-FID. It detects and reports out over 60 analytes including the 4 main categories: saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat and trans fats.
