Welcome to CEM.com

Overview

ORACLE is the first ever rapid fat analyzer that requires absolutely no method development for fat only analysis. At the touch of a button, ORACLE can analyze fat in any food sample with reference chemistry accuracy, without any prior knowledge of the sample matrix or composition. Simply press the run arrow and ORACLE delivers an exceptionally accurate and precise fat result in 30 seconds. Alternatively, ORACLE can be paired with the SMART 6 for combined rapid fat and moisture/solids analysis in less than 5 minutes.

Awards

Unique Chemistry

Newly developed NMR technology that completes isolates protons in fat from all other proton sources in food matrixes, such as carbohydrates and proteins.

Features

  • Rapid- 30 second analysis
  • Analyze any sample from 0.05 – 100.00 % fat
  • Direct isolation and measurement of hydrogen protons on fat molecules
  • Precise- better repeatability than wet chemical extraction techniques

Fat Analysis

Absolutely NO method development

ORACLE is the first ever rapid fat analyzer that requires absolutely no method development. ORACLE provides reference chemistry accuracy for any food sample without any prior knowledge of the sample matrix and composition. Simply press the run arrow and in 30 seconds the ORACLE delivers a fat result. It’s really that simple.


ORACLE can also be paired with an automated robot for unattended analysis of 100 samples per run.

Moisture/Solids and Fat

Rapid analysis in < 5 minutes

Pair the SMART 6 Moisture & Solids Analyzer with the ORACLE for rapid moisture/solids and fat in one system. The SMART 6 utilizes dual-frequency energy to rapidly analyze moisture/solids in any product, wet or dry, in approximately 3 minutes. The system comes pre-programmed with a library of optimized drying methods for pairing with the ORACLE.

Oracle Fat Analysis- No method development


ORACLE is unique

Major breakthrough in
NMR technology

  • Newly developed technique achieved in 2016
  • Technology completely isolates the detection of the proton signal in fat molecules from all other compositional proton sources (i.e. protein, carbohydrate, ash) making a universal fat analyzer possible
  • Alternative rapid techniques are unable to fully isolate fat from other components, which is why extensive calibration development is often required

Accurate Analysis

Get an accurate analysis of any food sample in only 30 seconds

ORACLE was verified with over 30 Certified Reference Materials (CRM’s) sourced from Europe and USA. These trusted samples undergo extensive reference testing in numerous certified laboratories and provide a benchmark for any food testing methodology. The blue data in the graph shows the linearity between the CRM reference results and the ORACLE rapid fat results. Since CRM’s are limited in their available matrices, CEM also outsourced hundreds of samples to third party testing laboratories for wet chemical reference chemistry analysis. The red data in the chart shows the comparison between the outside lab reference results and ORACLE.

    Perfect for corporate integration

    All ORACLES are manufactured and designed to produce the same results worldwide, making the system an ideal solution for corporations seeking to standardize rapid instrumentation. Alternative rapid fat analyzers are susceptible to differences in optics and system components, which prevents them from transferring methods between various locations. That means that each system requires unique method development, which ultimately translates to extensive time and capital. Plus, there’s no guarantee that the results will match.

    Since ORACLE does not require method development and all the systems are the same, users can rest assured that all sites will get the same accurate, consistent results. What does that mean? A pet food distributor in Texas will get the same accurate ORACLE fat result as its parent manufacturer in California and the primary fish and meat suppliers in Australia and Japan.

    ORACLE comes with an easy to use, highly responsive, touchscreen interface. The software is designed so that anyone can walk up, press the run arrow, and complete an analysis…it’s really that simple.

    For those users that want to delve deeper into the system functionality, the software includes advanced data processing capabilities, such as data sorting, system diagnostics, quality control tests, data and system export, LIMS connectivity, USB output, and many others.
    ORACLE can also be paired with a balance to directly capture sample masses or if users prefer to weigh samples in a separate location, the software includes an import function. This is ideal for large testing facilities that run 100’s of samples per day and have dedicated sample weighing rooms. Simply insert the USB, select the import icon, and the full batch is automatically populated.

    Additionally, ORACLE contains various user control settings (such as Administrator and Basic User), to provide customers the flexibility to choose which information (i.e. system settings, data) is available on a user level basis.
