The analyses of fats and oils for quality control

Are you active in the food industry sector and do you use fats and oils for your products? Do you produce, process and store fats and oils for the food industry?

We have the most appropriate analysis system for your business that you can use for quality and process controls at any stage of the production chain. 

It is CDR FoodLab® for fats and oils, the system that allows to perform chemical test for fats and oils easily and rapidly, thus improving the production efficiency and the profitability of a company.

CDR FoodLab® is compact and handy and can be used in any environment, either in a laboratory or at the production plant, even if you don't have specific chemical lab tech experience.

Fast and intuitive, it provides results that are correlated with the reference methods.


What you can analyze

CDR FoodLab® can be used to test any type of vegetable and animal fats and oils, using samples of product as is or with a prior simple preparation fine tuned by the laboratories of CDR. 

Available determinations:

With CDR FoodLab® you can perform quality or process controls either in a laboratory or directly at the production plant of companies that produce, process or store fats and oils, or of companies that use fats and oils as ingredients. 

For example, it is possible to

How it can help you

Simple method will save your time

CDR FoodLab® exploits analytical procedures and dedicated reagents specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR. The procedures are easier and faster than traditional methods

  • low toxicity reagents previaled and ready to use remove the need to handle toxic or carcinogenic compounds.
  • The sample is tested as is, or with a prior extremely simple preparation
  • There is no need to wash either containers or traditional glassware.

Moreover, CDR FoodLab® reduces testing time as it allows 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 following a simple and fast procedure.

A reliable measuring instrument

CDR FoodLab® for fats and oils guarantees high accuracy and sensitivity. For example, very low levels of FFA (range 0.01 – 24 expressed in grams as % of oleic acid) or of peroxide value (range 0.1 – 550 mEqO2/Kg) can be determined beginning from 0.01. That is why this system represents an excellent solution for food industries that process refined oils.

A true testing laboratory

A true testing laboratory for chemical analyses in a complete, intuitive and reliable equipment


CDR FoodLab® is a true analysis laboratory. We have developed it to perform easy and fast chemical analyses directly on the production line without the support of personnel with specific lab tech experience.

CDR FoodLab® optimezes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the ISO reference methods. 

Take a look at the models of analyzer available 

With CDR FoodLab®, in addition to carrying out analyzes on vegetable or animal oils and fats, you can also determine the main chemical parameters for quality control of other foods such as egg products, milk and dairy products, tomato derivatives  as well as animal feed and pet food 

Our device comes from a family of fast and reliable testing systems that we have developed and manufactured to perform food and beverage quality controls during the production process.

The ‘help’ function makes your tests easier

The system is reliable, fast and intuitive. It is so simple to use that anyone can run a test in total autonomy as if they were skilled personnel. Just a few steps suffice to perform the analyses and, if there is ever a doubt, the HELP function will lead you through the process by displaying detailed instructions. Check out all the features!
