The System Designed to Perform Quality Controls on Milk and Dairy Products

The chemical analysis of the milk and dairy products for quality control for every stage of the production chain with CDR FoodLab

CDR FoodLab® One single instrument allows you to determine a wide range of chemical parameters on milk and dairy products easily and rapidly.

CDR FoodLab® is the analysis system for milk and dairy products to perform quality controls throughout the production process. 

Analytical Methods

Analytical methods are optimized for making the system easy to use in laboratory as well at receiving inspection in dairy industry. 

The analyzer is equipped with a measuring system owes its sensitivity, accuracy and reliability to the photometric technology based on state of-the-art LED luminous sources.

The results are correlated with the reference methods.

What you can analyze

With CDR FoodLab® you can determine a wide range of chemical parameters easily and rapidly without having to learn how to use different analysis systems.

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.

Even more

CDR FoodLab® is ideal to perform the determination of Lactose content in lactose-free dairy products to control the delactosation process, thanks to a new method much quicker and with a friendly use for everyone if it is compared to the tradional enzymatic kit

How can you perform tests?

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:

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

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.

Study of the CDR FoodLab® for analysis of milk and dairy products performed by the reference laboratory ACTALIA

Download the evaluation study of the CDR FoodLab® instrument on important parameters of quality control in the dairy sector such as: ammonia on serum, urea on milk and lactose on lactose-free milk made by ACTALIAThe Poligny ACTALIA (France) reference laboratory, specialising in food analysis, performed an evaluation study of the CDR FoodLab® instrument on important parameters of quality control in the dairy sector such as: ammonia on serum, urea on milk and lactose on lactose-free milk. The CDR FoodLab® methods were compared to the reference methods, obtaining excellent correlation coefficients. Read More

An accurate measuring instrument

Reliable analyses on milk. A report from the Standard Latte Laboratory

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.

Determination of Lactose content in lactose-free dairy products with CDR FoodLab® in-depth

CDR FoodLab method for the determination of Lactose content in lactose-free dairy productsIn this work a new improvement for lactose determination is assessed in terms of reproducibility, accuracy and recovery. New method and traditional enzymatic method are also taken into comparisonon adding determined aliquotes of lactose in reallactose-free matrices. The new method, that is in CDR FoodLab®, appears to be much quicker and with a friendly use for everyone if it is compared to the tradional enzymatic kit. Read More
