The CQ Foods Certified Quality Reader (CQR) is a handheld device that utilizes bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) to detect woody breast. This technology provides producers, distributors and retailers an accurate spot check tool and methodology.

The CQR instantaneously detect and measure woody breast in chicken breast broiler fillets. Woody breast is a muscle myopathy found in certain chicken breasts. While nonharmful to humans, the condition makes the poultry tough and unpleasant to consume.
