Determination of Vicinal diketones (VDKs) in beer and wort

Vicinal diketones (VDKs) levels can be measured using CDR BeerLab®, a system which enables you to carry out a wide panel of chemical analyses on beer and water, using a single instrument, in a process that is faster and simpler than traditional methods. With CDR BeerLab® brewers and breweries of any size can independently carry out brewing process controls without having to rely on external laboratories.

Quartz Analytics is engaged primarily in supplying accurate and easy-to-use lab equipment that improves quality control for both the food and beverage industries. Through our partnership with cdR Mediared, which evolved from us being customer to distributor of their state of the art quality control lab analysis systems and supplies in North America. The cdR technology, created and developed in Italy, couples spectrophotometrics with a series of pre-filled and ready to use reagent kits developed by the research laboratories of cdR.

These systems are easy to use, do not require calibration, technical support and maintenance, and provide compliant reference methods. The systems are practical, reliable and allow one to perform accurate chemical tests on different kinds of foods and beverages in a very rapid way.
