fish oil for quality control

CDR FoodLab® is the analysis system to test easily and rapidly the key parameters for fish oil quality control, either in a laboratory or directly on food industry production lines or even aboard ships.

The system does not foresee the use of toxic solvents and can determine:

  • p-Anisidine Value in 6 minutes
  • Peroxides in 4 minutes
  • Free Fatty Acids (FFA) in 1 minute

Reduced testing time, easy use and reliability of results allow to optimize the production process or the processing of fish oil.

Fish oil tends to oxidize very quickly, that is why it is vital that processing companies may rely on an instrument such as CDR FoodLab®, which allows for a simpler and faster monitoring of the oxidation status of fish oil.

How is CDR FoodLab® System composed?


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 quality control tests on fish oil performed?

Performing chemical analyses on fish oil is simple and fast because sample preparation is not required. All reagents are supplied pre-vialed and ready to use, and operators do not have to get in touch with toxic or carcinogenic compounds; there is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware. glassware.
With CDR OxiTester, results are yielded in just a few steps:glassware.

Testing quality of fish oil is simple and fast. Take a look!

A versatile analysis system


CDR FoodLab is a versatile system that can be configured to analyze fats, oils, milk and dairyproducts, and tomato derivativesThe CDR FoodLab® chemical analysis system for fish oil can be also used to test any type of vegetable and animal fats and oils. Moreover, it can be configured to perform analyses on egg productsmilk and dairy productstomato derivatives and vegetable purées in general.

With the CDR system, you can perform your tests in total autonomy

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 and results are yielded right away

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.
