Cdr analyzer for Tomato

CDR FoodLab® is the analysis system for tomato and tomato derivatives that enables to perform quality controls easily and rapidly, determining the concentration of lactic acid either in a laboratory or directly in the production plant.

Tomato can be tested under any form, either chopped, or as a sauce or as a paste. Sample preparation is minimal and anyone can perform the test, even personnel with no previous specific lab tech experience. It is also possible to analyze any type of vegetable purée.

How is CDR FoodLab® System composed?


CDR Analyzer for Tomato and Tomato derivatives 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 performed?

Performing chemical analyses on tomato, tomato derivatives and vegetable purées is simple and fast, because sample preparation is minimal (microfiltration is sufficient). 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 FoodLab®chemical tests on tomato, tomato derivatives and vegetable purées are performed in just a few steps and results are yielded right away:

  • Select the parameter to measure from the menu: the system automatically selects the correct wavelength.
  • Use the supplied pipette to add the correct volume of sample to the pre-vialed reagent, specifically developed by our laboratories. A colorimetric reaction is generated.
  • Follow the displayed instructions.

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

Save your time

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:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy and that does not involve the use of toxic solvents;
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.

Moreover, CDR FoodLab® allows accelerating analytical procedures. Its thermostated incubation cells and the multitasking mode allow performing in an simple and fast way:

  • several analyses at the same time on the same sample
  • sixteen different assays for the same parameter on a batch of different samples.

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).

A versatile analysis system

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 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.
