OXITEST is a multi-application accelerated oxidative stability testing device.

Multiple Application

  • Prediction of the oxidative stability during shelf-life studies
    Tests the product at defined time intervals; builds an experimental curve
  • Evaluation of the adequacy of storage conditions
  • Evaluation of the best packaging solution
  • Comparison of the oxidative stability of different formulas for food preparations
  • Evaluation of the oxidative stability of vegetable oils of different botanical origin
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of antioxidants
  • Information on product oxidation when the oxidation flex is not visible
    Especially useful for products with a low fat content (4-5%)
    Product oxidation can be achieved by combining the OXITEST with GC

Oxidative Stability Reactor - Reliable Results Directly on the Whole Sample

The OXITEST tests directly the whole sample, without the need of fat separation that can affect the reliability.

 

AOCS Official Method

The Oxitest Method is Officially recognized by AOCS, the American Oil Chemist’s Society and it is included in the 7th edition of the Official Methods and Recommended Practices of the AOCS.

The Oxitest method is identified as AOCS International Standard Procedure Cd 12c-16 for the determination of the oxidation stability of food oils and fat.

 

Oxidative Stability Reactor - Titanium Chambers

Two separate titanium chambers offers the possibility to run the same test in duplicate or different tests at the same time.

Titanium is ideal for this application, as it ensures a particularly high resistance and excellent chemical compatibility with any test condition, and it does not become oxidized.

 

Oxidative Stability Reactor - OXISoft™, Powerful and Intuitive



The new OXITEST edition is managed by an outstanding software, to satisfy the most demanding needs. The new OXISoft™ manages all the analysis steps and easily provide valuable information to enable scientists to perform:

► Repeatability test
► Freshness test
► Formulas comparison
► Packaging comparison
► IP during ageing
► Estimated shelf life

Up to 4 OXITEST can be managed by the same software, for maximum productivity.
