CDR KombuchaLab is an innovative system for the analysis of Kombucha, which is used to optimise 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 it is no longer necessary to rely on external laboratories but it is possible to obtain the results of analyses in real time in order to promptly make the best decisions during the fermentation process avoiding dangerous organoleptic deviations.
Alcohol content determination
The high power and sensitivity of the reading cell enable performing of the analysis of the alcoholic content with excellent precision even for very low alcoholic contents.
How are Kombucha analyses performed with CDR KombuchaLab?
The performing of chemical analyses on Kombucha is quick and easy: it is possible to analyse 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.

What is the CDR KombuchaLab system?
CDR KombuchaLab is an actual laboratory for chemical analyses on Kombucha. A complete system, equipped with everything needed to carry out checks during the entire production process and to be able to choose the most appropriate production strategies to achieve the desired organoleptic characteristics.
- 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
The Reagent Kits
CDR KombuchaLab 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).
To analyse Kombucha during the production process, CDR KombuchaLab uses analytical procedures and reagents for the specific application developed by CDR laboratories in order to:
- dispense with sample preparation or to make it very easy and fast
- make analytical methods very quick and simple
- eliminate the need for complex calibration procedures.
Furthermore CDR KombuchaLab is used to shorten the analytical procedures for control of the production process because it is equipped with
- thermostated incubation cells
- multitasking function
These features enable the performing of multiple analyses simultaneously on the same sample or 16 determinations of the same parameter, in series, on different samples.
CDRKombuchaLab is able to work in Multitasking mode in order to manage the determinations of different analytical parameters simultaneously, even on different Kombucha samples.
For example, the Multitasking mode is used to quickly determine the complete analytical profile of the finished product. In approximately 10 minutes the entire analytical panel available can be determined, characterising the Kombucha from a chemical point of view quickly and easily.
When operating in Multitasking mode, CDRKombuchaLab can place the analysis being worked on in the background to then start another one, with the possibility of returning to the previous analysis at any time.
