Can we help you?

CDR FoodLab® is the ideal method for performing quality and process controls, in real time, directly on food industry production lines.

The speed and ease of use of CDR FoodLab® is analytical methods become competitive advantages for food industries producing oils or fats, or that employ them as ingredients.

CDR FoodLab® can determine:

  • Free Fatty Acids in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Value in 4 minutes
  • p-Anisidine Value in 2 minutes
  • Soaps in 2 minutes
  • Iodine Value in Palm Oil in 2 minutes
  • Polyphenols on Olive Oil in 5 minutes

CDR FoodLab® is the chemical analysis system designed and developed to provide accurate results at every step of the production process: the system is so easy to use that it can be utilized not only in a laboratory, but real time at the production plant for process control or quality control, even by staff with no previous specific lab tech experience.

How is CDR FoodLab® System composed?

Instruments

CDR FoodLab® Analysis System uses an analyzer based on photometric technology, available in two versions, and a dedicated kit of pipettes.

The ease and reliability of the system is based on exclusive technical features:

  • reading cells are equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters;
  • reading and incubation cells are thermostated at 37 ° C;
  • the analyzer is supplied pre-calibrated, no further calibration or maintenance is required;
  • instruments can be equipped with a printer or PC connection.

Reagent Kits

CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use low toxicity disposable pre-vialed reagents, specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR.

The use of pre-vialed reagents and dedicated analytical procedures allows:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures;
  • removing all needs to handle toxic or carcinogenic agents;
  • making the amount of chemical waste generated only a fraction of the waste generated by standard methods.

Reagents come in packages containing 10 test tubes each, to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).

How are tests on fats and oils performed?

Performing chemical analyses on fats and oils is simple and fast, because sample preparation, if any, is minimal. All reagents are supplied pre-vialed and ready to use, and operators do not have to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.

Save your time

To assess the quality of an oil or a fat and assay its oxidation status, CDR FoodLab® relies on analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR that allow:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy, when needed at all;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.

Moreover, CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating quality control analytical procedures because it features:

  • thermostated incubation cells
  • multitasking mode

These features allow performing several analyses at the same time on the same sample or sixteen different assays for the same parameter on a batch of different samples.

Comparison study between CDR FoodLab® analytics methods and reference methods for Oil and Fats testing

The international reference laboratory Campden Bri has trialled the CDR FoodLab® to establish whether it could meet the requirements for analysing a number of important food quality parameters. assessment of the ability of the CDR FoodLab® to analyse for Anisidine Value, Peroxide Value and Free Fatty Acids content showed that the instrument gave comparable results to the reference methods with very high correlation coefficients suggesting good accuracy of results.

The CDR FoodLab® is a self-contained unit requiring only a mains power supply. It is straightforward to use and requires no more than one hour of training. The instrument is maintenance-free and no additional equipment is required to analyse samples. It provides data faster than traditional laboratory-based methods

A versatile analysis system

The CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system for fats and oils can be configured to perform analyses on egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato derivatives and vegetable purées in general.
