Comparison CDR Foodlab® vs NGD-ISO/AOCS Methods in Oil Matrices

Italian accreditated laboratory Neotron compares the performance of CDR FoodLab® ’s method with NGD and ISO methods used to determine the level of soaps, Peroxide Value (PV) and Free Fatty Acid (FFA) in an oil matrices.Neotron, an accredited laboratory, conducted a study in order to compare the performance of CDR FoodLab® ’s method with NGD and ISO methods used to determine the level of soaps, Peroxide Value (PV) and Free Fatty Acid (FFA) in an oil matrices.

Reference methods are:

  • NGD C8 – 1976 for the determination of soaps
  • ISO 660 (AOCS Cd 3d-63 or AOCS Ca 5a-40 or AOAC 940.28) for the determination of Free Fatty Acid
  • ISO 3960 (AOCS Cd 8b-90 or AOAC 965.33 ) for the determination of the Peroxide Value

CDR FoodLab® ’s method used to determine the Free Fatty Acid (FFA), Peroxide Value (PV) and soaps in oils and fats is available also in the following systems: CDR OxiTester, CDR FoodLab®, CDR PalmoilTester and CDR WineLab®.

Peroxide analysis and results: correlation
Neotron drew the following conclusions:

Neotron's Report of the validation testsCDR FoodLab® is easy to use. The tests performed in relation to Peroxide Value (PV), Free Fatty Acid (FFA) and soaps confirm that the system provides an excellent photometric linearity and that the results are equivalent to those obtained during parallel tests based on ISO methods (for the Peroxide Value (PV) and Free Fatty Acid (FFA)) and the NGD methods (for soaps). The ISO methods used to determine the Peroxide Value (PV) and Free Fatty Acid (FFA) match the analytical criteria defined for these parameters in EEC Regulation 2568/91 and subsequent amendments.

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.
