CDR FoodLab® is the analysis system that allows performing fast quality controls on nuts and seeds in order to determine their oxidation status, abandoning the use of toxic solvents like Soxhlet involved in traditional testing methods.
CDR FoodLab® easily performs chemical analyses on nuts and seeds to determine their oxidation status and efficaciously monitor the natural degradation and rancidity process of batches of products.
With no use of toxic solvents, the system can determine:
CDR FoodLab® can analyze the micro-quantities of samples by extracting the oil with a simple mechanical treatment. No maintenance and calibration are required. The system can be used not only in a laboratory but also in real-time at the processing plant, even by staff with no previous specific lab tech experience.
Performing chemical analyses to monitor the oxidation status of oils and fats contained in hard-shelled dried fruit, seeds, etc. is simple and fast because with the CDR system you extract the oil to analyze with a simple mechanical treatment, abandoning the use of toxic solvents, extraction hoods, All reagents are supplied in pre-filled cuvettes 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.
Thanks to the Multitasking Mode, on the oil, extracted you can determine in 5 minutes Free Fatty Acids, Peroxide Vale and p-Anisidine Value, complex analytical instruments, and complicated methods.
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 are based on exclusive technical features:
CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use low toxicity disposable pre-vialed reagents, specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR.
