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.

White Paper Discusses Maintaining Sustainable Quality with Weighing
In food production, accurate weighing can greatly impact the overall quality and integrity of the product, as well as enhancing a business's productivity and competitiveness. When a food manufacturer's weighing equipment is not verified, it risks inaccurate weighing and inadequate process quality, safety and compliance. In a new white paper, "GWP - The Global Weighing Standard for the Food Industry," the experts at METTLER TOLEDO have outlined how the global
New Guide on Acidity and Acid Content Determination in Food
Acidity of food items is an important topic within the food industry. There are personal and cultural differences in taste and considerations about storability that make a close monitoring of acidity in food products necessary. With regards to filling temperature and the risk of infestations with Clostridium botulinum, acidity also becomes an economic factor. To assist those working with food, METTLER TOLEDO has recently created an extensive guide for acid content
