Chemical Analyses on Palm Oil with CDR PalmOilTester

CDR PalmOilTester: palm oil analysis system for quality and process controlsCDR PalmOilTester is the analysis system for crude and refined palm oil, ideal to perform quality and process control tests in all production stages and at plant on in chemistry laboratories of food industry. 

CDR PalmOilTester can determine:

  • Free Fatty Acids (FFA) in 1 minute
  • Peroxides in 4 minutes
  • DOBI & Carotene in 6 minutes
  • Iodine value in 2 minutes
  • p-Anisidine Value in 2 minutes

Thanks to its ease of use and reliability, CDR PalmOilTester is employed by palm oil producers in Asia, Africa and South America during all production stages.

Furthermore, CDR PalmOilTester is used in testing laboratories or directly on production lines in many food industries worldwide that use palm oil as a cooking oil and shortening or in the manufacture of margarine, non-dairy creamers and ice cream and so on.

It offers an analytical method that combines reliability of results with a simple and rapid use.

How are tests on palm oil performed?

Performing chemical analyses on palm oil, either crude or refined, is simple and fast because sample preparation 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.

What is the CDR PailmOilTester System?

CDR PalmOilTester is a self-contained apparatus complete with everything needed to perform accurate chemical analyses on palm oil, at the mill, at the refinery plant, or at any stage of the production line.


CDR PalmOilTester: the all-inclusive system for chemical analyses of palm oil

  • An analyzer based on photometric technology, 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..

Save your time

CDR PalmOilTester can determine several parameters in palm oil, either crude or refined, relying on analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR that allow:

  • a sample preparation that is quick and easy
  • making analytical procedures extremely fast and easy
  • removing all needs for complex calibration procedures.

Moreover, CDR PalmOilTester allows accelerating analytical procedures for crude and refined palm oil quality control 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.

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.
