Press release from: Mettler-Toledo International Inc.

Mettler Toledo, the leading manufacturer of precision instruments, developed the Risk Check: An online tool to analyze the weighing risk of balances from all kinds of manufacturers. The Risk Check defines the weighing risk to optimize the performance and quality of a balance. It is based on the international weighing guideline Good Weighing Practice (GWP), which is appropriate for persons in charge of quality management in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food and beverage industries.

Which environmental conditions influence a balance? How often is a balance supposed to be tested? Knowing the correct answers to these questions saves time and money. These are two of eight questions of the Risk Check: a web-based instrument to analyze the weighing risk of a balance. It optimizes the performance and quality of weighing instruments and its processes. Feeding the Risk Check with real-world data from weighing processes allows for expert advice to be accessed. This valuable service provides people in charge of quality management with details on how to improve their quality management systems as it relates to weighing.

The Risk Check as a "Mock-Audit"
In regulated environments such as in the pharmaceutical or chemical industries, controlling their weighing system and processes is an everyday task for quality managers. In regular intervals, external auditors will test the quality system of a company according to industry standards. Martin Huber, Ph.D. and marketing manager for laboratory balances at Mettler Toledo, highlights a powerful aspect of the Risk Check: "The Risk Check offers the possibility to analyze and improve the quality management of weighing processes. It is sort of a 'Mock Audit' and serves as a rehearsal for the actual audit."

Everything in the green?
What are the main benefits of the Risk Check? First and foremost, it provides a qualitative statement regarding the quality of weighing processes and the appropriateness of testing frequencies. This important analysis is based on international quality guidelines, making weighing processes more cost-effective and adding a layer of security. Supplying real-world data provides a quantitative result. A compliance chart shows the degree of the weighing risk. As long as the index is in the green area, the weighing is risk low. However, if the result appears in the red area, weighing processes may potentially unsafe. The Risk Check provides instant expert advice according to the individual weighing risk and shows how to optimize the quality and performance of the tested balance. "The Risk Check is applicable to all kind of balances, independent from model, type or manufacturer. It offers orientation in the jungle of regulation guidelines and supports quality and laboratory managers, as well as anyone else in charge of balances," says Huber.
