CDR FoodLab® for Fish Oil Quality Control

CDR FoodLab is the fast, simple and reliable analysis system to perform quality control testson fish oil, even on the production line or aboard shipsCDR 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.

What is the CDR FoodLab® System?

CDR FoodLab® is a self-contained apparatus complete with everything needed to easily and quickly determine the oxidation status of fish oil.


CDR FoodLab, the all-inclusive system for fish oil chemical analyses: fast, simple, and reliable

  • An analyzer based on photometric technology, available in the standard or Junior version, equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters, reading cells and 37°C thermostated incubation cells.
  • A kit of low toxicity, disposable reagents. Reagents are pre-vialed, in package of 10 tests, 1 year shelf life, developed and produced by the research laboratories of CDR
  • Pipettes allow for the collection of the correct volume of sample.
  • The Help function will lead you through the process “Step by Step”.
  • A graphic printer will immediately print the test results.

CDR FoodLab® is a true testing laboratory: thanks to its compact size, it can be used on the production line, in a laboratory, or even aboard a ship.

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.

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

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.

Analytical kit

CDR FoodLab® Analysis Systems use disposable pre-vialed reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR. The use of pre-vialed reagents and the analytical procedures allow:

  • 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.

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.
