Features of Oxidation Stability Reactor - OXITEST

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 test of incoming raw materials and outgoing finished products 

Simple & Safe Operation  Intuitive OXISoft™ software – easy to learn and use  Overpressure safety valve  Alarms for damaged probe and out-of-range temperature  Choice of language for the management software 

Maximum Productivity  No sample preparation – works on the whole sample (fat included)  Twin chambers for duplicate or parallel analysis  Manage up to 4 OXITESTs with the same software 

Versatile Data Handling  Data recordable in a database  Test comparison available with data overlays  Data exporting via USB to pen drive or PC  Output in .xls, .txt and .csv format to match reporting systems 

Robust Design  Indestructible titanium sample holders and chambers  Hermetic, sealed closure of the chambers 

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.
