Safe Automated Weighing of Potent Compounds in the Pharmaceutical Industry

METTLER TOLEDO today announced an upcoming webinar entitled “Safe Automated Weighing of Potent Compounds in the Pharmaceutical Industry" with special guest presenter Dr. Roy Helmy, Director of GlobalAnalytical Chemistry at Merck Research Laboratories in Rahway, NJ.

In this free educational webinar, laboratory managers andprofessionalswho are concerned with safety or responsible for safety measures will be introduced to an efficient and effective solution for weighing small quantities of potent compounds. Dr.Helmy will explain how the use of automated dosing, a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA)-filtered ventilated balance enclosure (VBE) and good potent compound handling techniques has eliminated the need to utilize an isolator to precisely weigh occupational exposure band (OEB)5compounds for analytical testingin hislaboratory.

In the pharmaceutical industry, laboratories are increasingly handling higher potency compounds. Consequently, safety is a high profile topic. Companies have a legal requirement to ensure the safety of their employees andminimize the risk of exposure to hazardous substances by providing effective containment facilities and personal protective equipment (PPE). Automated powder weighing delivers an efficient combination of containment strategy and improved sample handling techniques to support these requirements.

The key objectives of this webinar are to discover how researchers can work in a laboratory environment with OEB 5 compounds without the need for an isolator; understand how automated weighing of potent compounds can increase the safety of researchers whilst delivering accurate and reproducible weighing;and to learn how automated weighing of potent compounds can be 20 times faster than the manual equivalent.
