this context, CDR research laboratories have perfected the
FOODLAB System , composed of an analyzer that utilizes a sophisticated
spectrophotometric technology and a series of specific reagents.
The instrument does not need to come into direct contact with the
samples and carries out tests on RAW MILK, CHEESE, and other DAIRY PRODUCT.
the Foodlab system
makes it possible to carry out chemical tests for the determination of Eggs, Tomatoes, Vegetable puree, Cheese, Dairy products, Edible Fats, Oils and so on.
The analytical method and the instrument were subjected to evaluation tests at Sinal certified laboratories such as: the Laboratorio Standard Latte dell'Associazione Italiana Allevatori (Milk Standard Laboratory of the Italian Breeders Association) and the Reference laboratory for tests on alimentary fats and oil.
A comparison was effectuated between the specific electrode and the CDR FOODLAB spectrophotometer that is used for the chemical analysis of ammonia in samples of milk. In particular, the costs of each analysis and the time necessary for the carrying out of the same were evaluated. See the relationship: CDR FOODLAB validation test for the determination of NH3 (Ammonia) in whole milk and skim milk
A comparison was effectuated between the analysis conducted using the Boehringer Mannheim enzymatic kit with the relative spectrophotometric analysis and the CDR FOODLAB instrument used for analysis of lactic acid in samples of milk. In particular, the costs of each analysis were evaluated and also the time necessary to effectuate the said analysis. See the relationship: CDR FOODLAB validation test for the determination of Lactic Acid (L) in whole milk and skim milk
Furthermore CDR presented a poster about Maillard reaction evaluation by e-fructosyl-lysine during milk thermal processing: first step at CONGRILAIT 2002 - PARIS
Infact CDR biochemical laboratories carried out studies about correspondence between e-Fructosyl-lysine content and heat-treatment of milk. These studies show that there is an excellent correspondence between e-Fructosyl-lysine content and heat treatment of milk. Furthermore the simplicity and inexpensiveness of the FoodLab system make chemical analysis of e-Fructosyl-lysine on milk a user-friendly test.
