The System Designed to Perform Quality Controls on Milk and Dairy Products
CDR FoodLab is the analysis system for milk and dairy products to perform quality controls throughout the production process. One single instrument allows to determine a wide range of chemical parameters easily and rapidly.
Analytical methods are fine tuned and correlated with the reference methods. This measuring system owes its sensitivity, accuracy and reliability to the photometric technology based on stateof-the-art LED luminous sources.
All types of milk can be tested (cow, buffalo, goat, sheep, etc.)
The system has been designed to determine the quality of low-fat milk or whole milk, raw or pasteurized, without any kind of previous sample treatment.
CDR FoodLab can also be used to test a wide range of cheeses and dairy products, like mozzarella, cottage cheese, yoghurt, butter, margarine with a minimal sample preparation developed by the CDR research laboratories that is far easier than official methods.
What is the CDR FoodLab System for assays on milk and dairy products?
CDR Foodlab is a true testing laboratory. Thanks to its compact size, it can be ideally used in a laboratory, on the production line, or at the time of purchase. A self-contained apparatus complete with everything needed to perform quality controls of milk and dairy products.
- An analyzer based on photometric technology, available in the Touch 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.
How are tests performed?
Performing chemical analyses on milk and dairy products is simple and fast because sample preparation, if any, is minimal. 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 milk and dairy products 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 quality of milk and dairy products, 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, when needed at all;
- making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy;
- removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.
Moreover, CDR FoodLab allows accelerating 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. All of this in an simple and fast way.
An accurate measuring instrument
CDR FoodLab guarantees reliable results for the tests performed on milk and dairy products. This measuring system owes its sensitivity, accuracy and reliability to the photometric technology based on LED luminous sources. Moreover, the correlation of the test results with the reference methods ensures the reliability of each and any analysis performed with the system. The CDR FoodLab analysis system has been validated by the Standard Latte Laboratory as well as by other certified laboratories.
Comparative studies have given evidence that the accuracy of the results obtained with the CDR FoodLab analytical method is in line with the accuracy of the results yielded by the reference methods, while CDR FoodLab is much easier to use and provides the requested results in reduced testing time.
