CDR OxiTester: The System Designed to Perform Chemical Tests on Olive Oil
CDR OxiTester is the fast, simple and reliable system conceived to perform quality controls on olive oil directly at the mill. Technical Skilled staff are not required.
Thanks to CDR OxiTester, even non-qualified staff in the field of chemical assays can perform olive oil testing very easily and quickly, in any environment and with no need of a dedicated laboratory.
CDR OxiTester for Olive Oil can determine:
- Free Fatty Acids (FFA) / Acidity in 1 minute
- Peroxide Value in 4 minutes
- Polyphenols / Oxidative Stability Index in 6 minutes
- K 270 in 1 minute
Samples do not require to be prepared. The instrument does not require calibration. Reagents come in ready-to-use vials and operators avoid getting in touch with toxic or carcinogenic substances.
CDR OxiTester Analysis System uses an analyzer based on photometric technology, available in two versions, and a dedicated kit of pipettes.
The ease and reliability of the system is based on exclusive technical features:
> reading cells are equipped with state-of-the-art LED emitters;
> reading and incubation cells are thermostated at 37 ° C;
> the analyzer is supplied pre-calibrated, no further calibration or maintenance is required;
> instruments can be equipped with a printer or PC connection.
CDR OxiTester Analysis Systems use low toxicity disposable pre-vialed reagents, specifically developed by the research laboratories of CDR.
The use of pre-vialed reagents and dedicated analytical procedures allows:
> 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;
> removing all needs to handle toxic or carcinogenic agents;
> making the amount of chemical waste generated only a fraction of the waste generated by standard methods.
Reagents come in packages containing 10 test tubes each, to perform 10 tests (or packages for 100 tests containing 10 single packages of 10 test tubes each).
