study

The Poligny ACTALIA (France) reference laboratory, specialising in food analysis, performed an evaluation study of the CDR FoodLab® instrument on important parameters of quality control in the dairy sector such as: ammonia on serum, urea on milk and lactose on lactose-free milk. The CDR FoodLab® methods were compared to the reference methods, obtaining excellent correlation coefficients.

The study “Improvement in nutritional quality and thermal stability of palm olein blended with macadamia oil for deep-fat frying application”, supported by Texas A&M University and published on the Journal of Food Science Technology, aimed to investigate the suitability of refined bleached deodorized palm olein oil (RBD POO) and Macadamia integrifolia oil (MO) blend as deep-fat frying substitute.

CDR FoodLab® for analysis of Free Fatty Acids (FFA), Peroxide Value (PV), and Anisidine Value (AV) has been used for the study. The mentioned parameters has considered as indicators of the state of oil deterioration.

In this work a new improvement for lactose determination is assessed in terms of reproducibility, accuracy and recovery. New method and traditional enzymatic method are also taken into comparisonon adding determined aliquotes of lactose in reallactose-free matrices. The new method, that is in CDR FoodLab®, appears to be much quicker and with a friendly use for everyone if it is compared to the tradional enzymatic kit.

We present the important study “Beer-brewing powered by controlled hydrodynamic cavitation: Theory and real-scale experiments” done by the Institute of Biometeorology of National Research Council (CNR) in Florence, Italy. The chemical analysis for the quality control in brewing process, involved in the study, has be done with CDR BeerLab®, by the CNR researchers.

At the conference ISA 2016 organized by the University of Bari, University of Basilicata and Società Chimica Italiana (Italian Chemical Society) prof. Massimo Innocenti, Department of Chemistry, University of Florence held the presentation “Spectroscopic Analysis of eco-foods”, in collaboration with researchers from the chemical CDR laboratories. Application Example evaluated in the presentation is the range of the CDR FoodLab® analysis systems that specialize and optimize the use of photometric technology in terms of cost, the amount of reagent used and analysis time.

OxiTester, the analytical system for vegetable oils and fats, was used during the study entitled “Qualitative Changes of Olive Oils Obtained from Fruits Damaged by Bactrocera oleae (Rossi)”, performed by Riccardo Gucci, Giovanni Caruso, Angelo Canale, Augusto Loni, and Alfio Raspi Department Coltivazione e Difesa delle Specie Legnose ‘‘G. Scaramuzzi,’’ University of Pisa, 56124 Pisa, Italy Stefania Urbani, Agnese Taticchi, Sonia Esposto, and Maurizio Servili Department Scienze Economico-Estimative e degli Alimenti, University of Perugia, 06126 Perugia, Italy.

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.
