|Title:||Hydrocarbon marker: a new tool for transit time studies||Contributor(s):||Choct, Mingan (author) ; Wang, J (author); Hughes, RJ (author); Annison, G (author)||Publication Date:||1995||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17525||Abstract:||Feed transit time is the amount of time feed components are retained in the gastrointestinal tract and is often measured by giving a known amount of marker-containing diet and determining the first appearance of the marker in the faeces. Most markers used in digestibility studies are insoluble substances such as Cr203 and acid-insoluble ash which must be incorporated into the diets in substantial quantities for sufficient accuracy in subsequent determinations. Feeding birds a marker-containing diet in a given amount of time is difficult and inaccurate, and force-feeding birds using the Sibbald technique is tedious and not suitable for young broilers. The current paper describes a new fat-soluble marker, a long-chain alkane (C36H74), which can be easily and accurately administered to chickens orally.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||7th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1995||Conference Details:||7th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1995||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1995, p. 200-200||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||7||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 422
