Press release from: Mettler-Toledo International Inc.

METTLER TOLEDO today announced an upcoming webinar with special guest presenter Dr. Charles Ray, former Associate Director of Analytical R&D at Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. This webinar will show how improving the efficiency and reliability of the sample preparation process with automation can address up to 50% of the causes of Out-of-Specifcation (OOS) results. The Webinar will be hosted on September 20, 2011 at 11:00 EST (15:00 GMT) by Pharmaceutical Technology. Register at

Out-of-Specification (OOS) investigations in Analytical R&D and QA/QC laboratories are costly and time-consuming. Although analytical instrumentation has seen impressive innovations in speed and efficiency over the last 10 years, sample preparation techniques have remained virtually unchanged for the past 75 years. Sample preparation is now reported to be the most time-consuming, labor-intensive and error-prone part of the workflow, with some 50% of OOS errors attributed to either preparation steps or operator error. These OOS errors could be prevented by automation.

In this free webinar, Dr. Charles Ray will share over 15 years’ experience in managing Analytical R&D workflows in leading pharmaceutical companies, such as Bristol-Myers Squibb Co, and also describe the challenges faced in his laboratory. Klaus Fritsch and Joanne Ratcliff, weighing and sample preparation experts from Mettler Toledo, will introduce the latest innovations and technology to cope with these challenges, including Good Weighing PracticeTM and automated weighing/data management. All speakers will be available for a Q&A session.

The key learning objectives of this webinar are: learn how to tackle 50% of the sources of error that cause costly OOS results and investigations; learn how to prepare samples and standards more efficiently and reduce the time and number of steps by a factor of three; learn how to reduce the variability of your results whilst downscaling the substance and solvent consumption by up to 90%.

This webinar is of interest to QC Managers, QA Managers, Quality Consultants, Compliance Managers; Laboratory Managers, Production Managers, GMP and CMC Consultants, Global Metrology Managers; Methods Development and Analytical R&D Scientists, Managers, Directors and Department Heads; Validations and Regulatory Scientists; Ref Standard Managers; Methods, Product or Technology Transfer Managers.
