CDR OXITESTER FOR CHEMICAL TEST ON OLIVE OIL

Oxitester

CDR OxiTester: The System Designed to Perform Chemical Tests on Olive Oil

CDR OxiTester is the fast, simple and reliable system conceived to perform quality controls on olive oil directly at the mill. Technical Skilled staff are not required.

Thanks to CDR OxiTester, even non-qualified staff in the field of chemical assays can perform olive oil testing very easily and quickly, in any environment and with no need of a dedicated laboratory.

CDR FoodLab® can determine:

  • Free Fatty Acids (FFA) / Acidity in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Value in 4 minutes
  • Polyphenols / Oxidative Stability Index in 6 minutes
  • K 270 in 1 minute
  •  

Samples do not require to be prepared. The instrument does not require calibration. Reagents come in ready-to-use vials and operators avoid getting in touch with toxic or carcinogenic substances.

How is OxiTester System composed?

Instruments

CDR OxiTester 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 olive oil performed?

Performing chemical analyses on olive oil is simple and fast because no sample preparation is required. 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.
With CDR OxiTester, results are yielded in just a few steps:glassware.

The result of the test is automatically calculated, displayed and printed in just a few minutes in its unit of measure.

Save your time

CDR OxiTester relies on analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR that allow:

  • testing olive oil as is;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.
  • avoiding the need to touch with toxic or carcinogenic substances

Moreover, CDR OxiTester 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.

CDR OxiTester Portable for oil quality control anywhere

CDR OxiTester Portable is composed of

  • CDR OxiTester Junior with lithium battery powered
  • Bluetooth printer
  • rigid carrying case

With CDR OxiTester Portable it is possible to carry out in a few minutes the analysis of FFA (acidity), peroxide value, polyphenols and stability index. Thanks to its lithium battery, with CDR OxiTester you can carry out the analysis for a whole day without plugging it in.

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.
