Analytical methods, developed by the CDR laboratories, and the CDR FoodLab® analysis systems have been compared with the ISO/AOCS reference methods. Moreover, the systems from the CDR FoodLab® range have been used in several studies carried out by world wide universities and by important research centers

The diverse certified laboratories and research institutes, have expressed very favorable opinions on the CDR systems being in line with the reference methods, as well as on the correlation with traditional methods, and the user- friendliness of the systems.

Following are the research and comparative studies involving the analysis systems of the CDR FoodLab® line.

Neotron, an italian accredited laboratory, conducted a study with the aim of comparing CDR FoodLab®’s method for the determination of the Peroxide Value (PV) and the Free Fatty Acid (FFA) in vegetable oil matrices using ISO/AOCS methods: “These excellent analytical results along with the easiness of use and extraordinary versatility make of this system a precious tool that can be widely used whenever analytical controls are required. “

The central research and development laboratory of PARMALAT S.p.A carried out a study entitled “Assessment of a fast method for milk thermal processes: e-fructosyl-lysine” aimed at determining whether the innovative FoodLab method for the control of dairy products could be used as a preliminary screening test to distinguish different types of thermal processes (pasteurization, direct and indirect UHT).

FoodLab was used during the study entitled “Comparison between analytical methods for the determination of the amount of ammonia, Peroxide Value (PV), chlorides and lactic acid aimed at calculating the shelf-life of ricotta cheese” conducted by Toppino P.M., Campagnol L., Cori E., Riva M. from Istituto Sperimentale Lattiero-Caseario (Dairy Products Experimental Institute), Lodi DISTAM, Milano

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.
