IMASDE manages a very powerful facility with 112 floor pens for 22 broilers, where several factorial models might be implemented: up to 12 treatments at the same time with 8 replicates per treatment.
IMASDE research procedure is very adaptable, so that almost every sample and/or analysis could be afforded. The most common parameters reported are performance (weight, growth, feed intake and feed conversion). Also, the following possibilities are available: ileal and faecal sampling, organs and tissues sampling, tibia bone strength and analysis, colour measurements by spectrophotometry, blood sampling, viscosity, immunology parameters, litter quality, food pad lesion scoring, etc. The analyses are done by the best European laboratories for each type of analysis.
