CDR WineLab® Method Validation

CDR WineLab is the fast, simple and reliable wine analysis system for your chemical tests right in the cellar. You don’t need to be an expert in chemistry

validation of CDR WineLab<sup>®</sup> by isvea CDR WineLab® was validated by the Institute for the Winegrowing, Winemaking and Agro-industrial Development.
The institute conducted a series of tests using CDR WineLab® and the reference method on some sequences of samples of different types of wines in order to verify the results produced by CDR WineLab®.

Reference methods used for the validation:

  • Glucose and fructose – HPLC method
  • Malic acid – HPLC method
  • Volatile Free Fatty Acid (FFA) – Titration after distillation method EEC regulation 2676/1990 17/09/1990 ECC OJ L272 03/10/1990, Exhibit point 14, OIV MA-F-AS313-02-ACIVOL 2006
  • Total sulphur dioxide – Titration after distillation method EEC regulation 2676/1990 17/09/1990 EEC OJ L272 03/10/1990, Exhibit point 25 par 2.2


The institute concluded that the tested CDR WineLab® methods were substantially valid. The statistical equivalence between the CDR WineLab®’s and the reference method was 95%.

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.
