What is a Certified Quality Reader (CQR)?

The Certified Quality Reader (CQR) is a handheld device that can instantly, accurately, and objectively measure the quality of food and animal health that is made in the USA. 

The Certified Quality Reader (CQR) utilizes Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to measure cells’ electrical properties. This technology is FDA approved for human use to measure body fat and body composition. The hardware, firmware, and software adapted to measure animals’ health and quality of protein foods such as chicken and fish. This water-resistant handheld unit is an FDA Class II medical device designed and built in an ISO 13485 facility. It is both durable and reliable. Ultimately, the CQR can measure anything with cells.

How does the Certified Quality Reader work?

The Certified Quality Reader (CQR) objectively and instantly measures food quality, freshness, fat and water indexes using electricity.

The Certified Quality Reader (CQR) sends a weak electrical currents through the fish or the animal product to measure the impedance of the electrical current as it passes through and around the cells. Measuring this resistance and reactance is how the CQR scientifically and objectively determines the health, quality, and body composition.

The measured results can be shown online to be easily read by the team for analysis.

What type of measurements can it provide?

The Certified Quality Reader (CQR) can measure  food quality, freshness, fat and water indexes.

Few sample use cases:

  1. Compare quality level from different suppliers: by measuring different suppliers over time, the CQR can provide objective results to easily see which supplier provides higher quality of fish compared to others.
  2. Determine shelf life: for grocery store or fish markets, the CQR can monitor fish quality over time to determine shelf life so that you can adjust the price or know when it must be thrown out.
  3. Monitor fish health: for fish farmers, monitor fish health real time as it responds to certain diet or feeding changes.
