How it can help you

Simple cider analysis methods

Analytical procedures exploited by the CDR CiderLab systems fine tune traditional methods, making them faster and easier.

All you need to have to run your tests is a support plane and a socket. The instrument can be used in any environment without getting messed up.

Free of maintenance or assistance costs

  • No complex and regular calibration procedures are required since the device is supplied pre-calibrated.
  • The system does not require costly spare parts: our analyzers exploit LED emitters and do not therefore require the maintenance that is usually needed for photometers using tungsten lamps.


A true testing laboratory for chemical analyses on cider that comes in a complete, intuitive and reliable equipment

Complete, intuitive and reliable equipment for chemical analyses on cider CDR CiderLab is a true analysis laboratory. We have developed it to perform easy and fast chemical analyses directly in the cellar or at the bottling plant without the support of personnel with specific lab tech experience, and without relying on a dedicated external laboratory

CDR CiderLab fine tunes traditional testing methods, making them faster and easier, while guaranteeing accuracy standards in line with the ISO reference methods

Compact and handy, it is composed of:

  • an analyzer based on photometric technology equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters, available in 2 versions
  • a kit of pre-vialed and ready-to-use low toxicity reagents, specifically developed by our research laboratory to fine tune analytical methods and avoid any contact with toxic or carcinogenic substances
  • pipettes that allow for the collection of the correct volume of sample.

Our device comes from a family of fast and reliable testing systems that we have developed and manufactured to perform food and beverage quality controls during the production process.

The ‘help’ function makes your tests easier

The system is reliable, fast and intuitive. It is so simple to use that anyone can run a test in total autonomy as if they were skilled personnel. Just a few steps suffice to perform the analyses and, if there is ever a doubt, the HELP function will lead you through the process by displaying detailed instructions.

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.
