CDR FoodLab Analyzer for Bakery Products is One single instrument allows you to determine a wide range of parameters easily and rapidly.
With CDR FoodLab®, quality control analyzer on bakery products, baked goods, snacks and spreads can be carried out completely, quickly and easily starting from the raw materials used (oils and fats, milk, eggs) and ending with the finished product. Toxic solvents are not necessary for preparation of the sample and the tests are completed in 10 minutes
The CDR laboratories have studied very simple and rapid sample preparation systems that do not involve the use of toxic solvents and are used to evaluate the oxidative stability on the finished product, thus obtaining valuable information on rancidity and shelf-life.
Furthermore it is possible to determine the presence of the appropriate quantity of lactose in the case of lactose-free products or of alcohol used as a preservative and antibacterial agent.
With CDR FoodLab® is possible to evaluate the rancidity and the value of TOTOX* of the finished products testing Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Value and Anisidine Value on the extracted fatty material.
Sample processing is extremely simple and free from hazardous solvents:
Acidity, peroxides and p-anisidine with CDR FoodLab ® are determined by a simple photometric method identical to that applied to analysis of the fat used to package the finished product.
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.
CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use disposable pre-vialed reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR. The use of pre-vialed reagents and the analytical procedures allow:
In this way it is possible to ascertain the rancidity and value of TOTOX* in real time, thus obtaining important information on the shelf life of bakery products, baked goods, snacks or spreads
Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, you can concurrently perform Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Value(PV) and p-Anisidine Value(AV) , so rancidity and TOTOX can be determined in 10 minutes.
*TOTOX= AV + 2PV indicates the general oxidation status of the oil/grease.
Thanks to the use of EXTRAFLUID the risks for the operator are eliminated and the environmental impact is minimised as the quality control of the products of bakery products (bakery products, baked goods, snacks and spreads) does not require longer and complicated extraction processes, toxic solvents, expensive waste disposal or extractor hoods.
This study carried out by the researchers of CDR chemical laboratories demonstrates how it is possible to develop a system for the determination of the oxidative state and shelf life of bakery products, baked goods, snacks and spreads usable from food manufacturers of any size.
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.
CDR FoodLab ® is used to determine the lactose in bakery products to verify the actual quantity of lactose present in lactose-free products.
The sample preparation is very simple: distilled water in appropriate proportions is added to the ground product to allow its solubilisation.
A clear solution is obtained through a centrifugal action which can thus be easily analysed.
In 10 minutes, with this simple method, reliable and precise results are obtained in accordance with the reference method (HPLC), which requires training, specific knowledge and a great deal of time available.
With CDR FoodLab ® the analysis of alcohol content can be performed both on a antibacterial solution and on a finished product, determining the starting alcohol concentration and the final product concentration respectively, in order to avoid exceeding the legal limit.
Also in the latter case the treatment of the sample takes place simply by adding to the crushed product a determined quantity of distilled water which solubilises the alcohol bringing it into solution.
With simple centrifugation a clear solution is obtained which is then easily analysed. The analysis consists of a simple photometric reading.
With CDR FoodLab®, in addition to the finished product, analyses can be performed on the raw materials used for its production, such as oils and fats, milk and egg products; for this purpose CDR FoodLab ® is a complete system for the quality control of bakery products, baked goods, snacks and spreads.
CDR FoodLab® Analyzer for Bakery 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).
With CDR FoodLab®, chemical tests on bakery products are performed in just a few steps and results are yielded right away:
The result of the test is automatically calculated, displayed and printed in just a few minutes in its unit of measure.
If you need the Help function will lead you through the analysis process “Step by Step”.
You don’t have to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.
You can perform the tests not only in laboratory, but also at production line, even if you don’t have any laboratory technical skills.
CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating analytical procedures because you can perform 16 simultaneous tests.
Furthermore, the Multitasking function allows 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. All of this in an simple and fast way.
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. All of this in an simple and fast way.
