Decades of scientific research, seafood industry expertise, and biomedical engineering experience have combined to create the CQR, our testing protocols, and the simple, repeatable process for determining food quality. Learn more about the science behind the CQR and the validation study performed by Oregon State University.
With over 30 years of operational and product development experience, in conjunction, with more than 15 years of research experience, CQ Foods, Inc. is leading innovative breakthroughs in the seafood industry. Our experience has given us the privilege of publishing and peer-reviewing several scientific publications in the bio-impedance space.
The primary purpose of CQ Foods, Inc. is the delivery of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) systems for use on various animals and foods. In addition to the hardware, custom dashboards help simplify reporting and data analysis.
Early work at CQ Foods, Inc. included measuring the fat content of live Alaskan salmon as they ran up the river, without harming the fish. The innovation of using BIA to measure compositional components in fish that include fat, protein, water, dry, ash, and energy content, and relating these measures with the condition was a breakthrough in non-invasive animal health monitoring.
At CQ Foods, Inc., it is an honor to chair national and international symposia meetings and support many graduate students at several major universities. All change starts with educating others. We work with many industries, governments, Sea Grant Universities, and non-profit’s to enable BIA technology to improve quality, enhance knowledge, increase transparency, and increase profits.
