  1. 1. HistoryMidwest Laboratories has over 35 Contactyears of analytical experience andhas grown in breadth and quality Soil B.R.A.N.of services as an environmentallaboratory with a strong base in Matt Stukenholtzagriculture and industry. Thebusiness philosophy of the (402) 829-9884 Biological Respiration And Nitri cationcompany has always been to matts@midwestlabs.comoperate from one central locationusing representatives to expandtheir reach.Today, the six-building campus in John McManisOmaha, Nebraska houses over (402) 829-988780,000 square feet of laboratory jmcmanis@midwestlabs.comand support area. Each laboratorymaintains its own complement ofstaff, instruments and supportpersonnel matched to the analyticalneeds of that particular department.

  2. 2. B.R.A.N. stands for The Solvita chemistry gel technology utilizes soilBiological Respiration incubation with alkali traps that absorbs a relativeand Nitri cation. This concentration of CO2 proportionate to the totaltest determines the concentration in the incubation vessel. Theaspect of soil quality absorbed CO2 produces a colormetric reaction thatrelating to overall soil is interpreted by a digital color reader. The digitalbiology and carbon color reader incorporates diode array detectioncontent. technology that selects intensity of red, green and blue emissions. The Soil B.R.A.N test measures active carbon and not just the content of raw organic matter. Crude organic matter in a soil can be high without a high state of soil respiration. *Photo courtesy of Solvita.com It also measures soil carbon dioxide respiration as a For more information, please contact means to gauge Matt Stukenholtz or John McManis biological soil fertility. (contact info is located on the back). Solvita technology is used to measure Biomass and C-N mineralization potential. This technology is proven to be as accurate as infared and traditional base-trap CO2 methods. Analysis you can trust Service you can rely on
