CDR FoodLab® easily performs chemical analyses on nuts and seeds to determine their oxidation status and efficaciously monitor the natural degradation and rancidity process of batches of product.
With no use of toxic solvents, the system can determine:
Free Fatty Acids in 1 minute, Peroxide Value in 4 minutes and p-Anisidine Value in 6 minutes
CDR FoodLab® can analyze micro-quantities of samples by extracting the oil with a simple mechanical treatment. No maintenance and calibration is required. The system can be used not only in a laboratory, but also real time at processing plant, even by staff with no previous specific lab tech experience.
CDR FoodLab® Analyzer for Egg products 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 to monitor the oxidation status of oils and fats contained in hard shelled dried fruit, seeds, etc. is simple and fast because with the CDR system you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment, abandoning the use of toxic solvents, extraction hoods, All reagents are supplied in pre-filled cuvettes 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.
Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, on the oil extracted you can determine in 5 minutes Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Vale and p-Anisidine Value, complex analytical instruments and complicated methods.
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 analytical procedures. Its thermostated incubation cells and the multitasking mode allow performing in an simple and fast way:
With the CDR extraction system you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment that allows to rapidly assess the quality of nuts abandoning traditional testing methods that foresee the use of toxic solvents (Soxhlet).
Nuts are very rich in fats. That is why acidity e peroxide value tests are constantly run by businesses operating in the field because they provide valuable information on the rancidity of fats and oils Here is an insight on the chemical features and methods of official testing systems compared with the techniques designed and fine tuned by CDR to efficaciously monitor the natural degradation and rancidity process of batches of product. For more info.
The CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system to test oil extracted from nuts, hard shelled dried fruit and seeds can also be used to test any type of vegetable and animal fats and oils. Moreover, it can be configured to perform analyses on egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato derivatives and vegetable purées in general.
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.
