Rock River Laboratory Inc. has announced the release of a new version of FeedScan, the company’s smart phone and tablet application for electronic sample submission.

Created as a tool to conveniently submit feed, forage, water and fecal samples directly to Rock River Laboratory for analysis, the latest version of the app boasts new, convenient, time-saving features to improve the user experience and success.

“Since its launch, the app has really revolutionized the way nutritionist and producer users approach feedstuff sample submission by offering them more time to consult and manage,” explains Zac Meyer, director of operations for Rock River Laboratory.

The updated, free app includes new time-saving features, including autocomplete to select farm names faster and a profile-saving function to save selections to make future sample submissions with only a few quick screen taps.

Convenience was also a key factor in the app update development. To reduce human error, an optional review screen is available to examine the selected information before submitting a sample. It also has the ability to send test results directly to any e-mail address in the app user’s phone book, right from app.


The app offers two standard options for sample submission – through barcode scan or via the sample code generation function, to identify the sample through the submission process.

The app also offers a quick link to the company website for users to easily access their laboratory results. The app’s capability to save sample submissions while offline and submit while online, combined with submission confirmation, provides customers a fail-safe means to confidently submit samples via the app.

The app is available for download at the App Store (search FeedScan) and Google Play. For app instructions and tools, visit the FeedScan Resource Center. PD
