Validation of the Ammonia Test for Milk
In collaboration with Parmalat S.p.A. CDR conducted a comparative study between the specific electrode and CDR FoodLab® methods in determining the amount of ammonia in whole and skimmed milk.
The purpose of the study was to assess the capability of CDR FoodLab® to detect the amount of ammonia in milk. The specific Orion electrode was used as reference method.
CDR FoodLab® is the preceding version of CDR FoodLab® .
The study demonstrated a good correspondence between the two methods and that, unlike the electrode method that requires more time, more manual operations, glassware and reagents in addition to a particular attention during the measurement phase, the CDR’s system is able to produce the required result in 8 minutes, information on the concentration of ammonia in the milk samples and does not require a pre-processing of the sample or the use of glassware.
Researchers concluded that CDR FoodLab® “enables to perform extemporary measurements in a short time (8 minutes), thus allowing operators to determine the acceptability of a batch in real time, with a very limited number of manual operations and using unprocessed samples of milk“.
