CDR KombuchaLab (Kombucha & Cidar)

CDR KombuchaLab is an innovative system for the analysis of Kombucha, which is used to optimize the production process obtaining results in real-time.


CDR KombuchaLab is an innovative system for the analysis of Kombucha, which is used to optimize the production process obtaining results in real-time.

It can be used in all production phases from the beginning of fermentation to the bottling of the finished product, even by anyone with no experience in laboratory techniques.

With CDR KombuchaLab you can perform a complete in-house quality control obtaining real-time results of analyses in order to promptly take the best decisions during the fermentation process avoiding dangerous organoleptic deviations.

The performing of chemical analyses on Kombucha is quick and easy: it is possible to analyze the sample as it is.

In case of turbidity, quick and simple centrifugation of the sample is sufficient before carrying out the analysis.

The reagents are pre-filled and ready to use and it is not necessary to handle toxic or carcinogenic agents or to use suction hoods or to wash the containers and the classic laboratory glassware.

If you need the Help function will lead you through the analysis process “Step by Step”.

You can perform the tests not only in the laboratory but also at the production line, even if you don’t have any laboratory technical skills.

How is CDR KombuchaLab System composed?


CDR KombuchaLab 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 are 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 KombuchaLab 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).
