Peroxide value measurement

Do you want to determine the peroxide value of your samples? The Calnesis Laboratory performs this type of assay.

What is the peroxide value?

The peroxide value is a parameter often used to characterize fatty substances of the oil, grease or resin type. It characterizes the quantity of active oxygen on the carbon chains. The more the fatty substance is oxidized, the higher the peroxide value. The term rancidity is often used to characterize these fatty substances.

How is the peroxide value measured?

It can be determined by dosage. Several standards exist for performing these measurements.

Other measurements
Determination of water in your samples using the Karl Fischer Coulometry method: liquids, powders, etc. High precision.
Identification and quantification of gaseous compounds emitted by samples during isotherms or temperature ramps.
Measurement of the turbidity of liquids on a wide range of samples, in particular water samples.
