What you can analyze

With CDR PalmOilTester, you can determine on either crude or refined palm oil, very rapidly and with no prior sample preparation :

  • Acidity in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Valuein 4 minute
  • DOBI & Carotene in 6 minutes
  • Iodine Value in 2 minutes
  • p-Anisidine Value in 2 minutes

How it can help you

Simple methods

Analytical methods exploited by CDR PalmOilTester are easier and faster than traditional methods and can be performed in just a few steps:

  1. Warm up palm oil since it is semi-solid at room temperature.
  2. Select the parameter to measure from the menu: the system automatically selects the correct wavelength.
  3. Use the supplied pipette to add the correct volume of reagent and then of sample. Then shake.
  4. The displayed instructions will help the operator step by step.
  5. The result of the test is automatically calculated, displayed and printed in just a few minutes.

Free of maintenance or assistance costs

  • Unlike NIR systems or other types of photometers, no complex and regular calibration procedures are required: the device is either supplied pre-calibrated, or a customized calibration can be carried out in a rapid and easy way.
  • The system does not require costly spare parts: our analyzers exploit state-of-the-art LED emitters and do not therefore require the maintenance that is usually needed for photometers using tungsten lamps. Moreover, the absence of moving parts eliminates the risk of damage.

Results are correlated with the reference methods

The PalmOilTester system and its analytical methods have been tested in the course of comparative trials carried out by several institutions, such as Indelab sdn. Bhd. Malaysia, Member Analyst to FOSFA INTERNATIONAL. The trials gave evidence of an excellent correlation of the results with the AOACS official methods.

A true testing laboratory that comes in a complete, intuitive and reliable equipment

Complete, intuitive and reliable equipment to testing chemical parameter in palm oilCDR PalmOilTester is a true analysis laboratory. We have developed it to perform easy and fast chemical analyses even on the production line without the support of personnel with specific lab tech experience.

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

Compact and handy, it is composed of:

  • an analyzer based on photometric technology equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters
  • 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. Click here for more info on the Help function

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.
