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%.
