Innovative Analysis System
for quality control of Palm Oil

PalmOilTester: the Fast, Simple & Reliable Palm Oil Analysis System.

PalmOilTester enables you to quickly determine the Acidity (FFA), Peroxide Value (PV), DOBI & Carotene Content, Iodine Value (IV) and Anisidine Value (AnV) on Palm Oil with high level of accuracy.

With its simplicity, PalmOilTester is ideal to be used during every production stages in palm oil industry to monitor the quality of oil in real time, from the oil mill to the refinery plant, during the acceptance and storage phases, as well as during trading of finished products.

Furthermore innovative features and advantages make PalmOilTester widely used in quality control of food industries worldwide that involve palm oil ingredient.

PalmOilTester is constituted by:

  • A thermostated analyzer based on photometric technology that uses solid-state emitters.
  • A set of reagents prepared by CDR research laboratories. Reagents are supplied in bottles with a shelf life of one year. Furthermore, plastic cuvettes are supplied.
  • Pipettes with fixed calibration to ensure a correct collection of samples and an accurate dosing of reagents.
  • Print Manager: software that enables the analyzer to be connected to a PC in order to store and print the results of chemical tests.
  • User manual.
  • Illustrated data sheets.
  • DVD with filmed methods.

PalmOilTester is supplied with a 3-year warranty.


Test results are available in few minutes.

  • Acidity (FFA) in 1 minute
  • Peroxide Value (PV) in 4 minutes
  • DOBI & carotene content in 6 minutes
  • Iodine Value (IV) in 2 minutes
  • Anisidine Value (AnV) in 2 minute

To run a test, it merely involves several simple steps.

  1. Add in exact amount of sample to the cuvette by using a pipette.
  2. Homogenize it.
  3. Initiate the test and result is available in few minutes.
  4. Results are printed by a built-in printer.

At the end of test, there is no washing of containers, testing instrumentation or quartz cuvettes required. No additional equipment is necessary.

Minimizes waste

As compared to official methods, it also minimizes waste, uses reagents with low toxicity and micro quantities of samples as it is.

Calibration Free

Unlike NIR and other photometric systems, it does not require complex calibration operations because it is supplied pre-calibrated. It is however possible to perform quick customized calibrations easily.


PalmOilTester owes its high sensitivity, accuracy and reliability to: photometric technology that uses solid-state emitters, the digital signals processing, the possibility of aligning the system with reference standards and samples with known titration value, and the availability of reading and incubation cells thermostated at 37°C.

Correlated with AOCS/MPOB methods

Several comparative studies have demonstrated that the analytical accuracy of PalmOilTester matches that of referenced AOCS/MPOB methods, with the advantages that PalmOilTester is easier to use and outputs results much faster.


PalmOilTester comes with illustrated operational sheets and filmed test methods that help the user to be certain about the system practicability.
