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:
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.
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:
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:
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).
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.
CDR FoodLab® system is the ideal solution to run analyses on fats and oils for quality control and process control at production lines in real time. This is why it is used worldwide by many food industries that either produce fats or oils, or process them as ingredients.
To assess the oxidation status of an oil contained in nuts or seeds, CDR FoodLab® relies on analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR that allow:
Moreover, CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating quality control analytical procedures because it features:
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.
Neither skilled staff nor a dedicated external laboratory is needed to use our systems. CDR FoodLab® optimizes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the reference methods.
Reagents come in aluminum packages containing 10 test tubes each to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).
Just a few steps will suffice to carry out your analysis in a rapid way in total autonomy. The system is composed of both the analyzer based on photometric technology and a kit of low toxicity, pre-vialed reagents, developed by CDR.
CDR FoodLab® is cost-effective because it does not require the use of expensive equipment and does not entail maintenance, assistance or calibration costs.
