White Paper: Use of laboratory balances in the pharmaceutical industry
6 December 2023

The European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) and the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) contain specific chapters that deal with the use of laboratory balances (Chapters <41> and <1251> of the USP and Chapter 2.1.7. of the Ph. Eur.). The chapters emphasize the criticality of weighing samples accurately in pharmaceutical analytical processes. In this whitepaper, Sartorius presents the testing requirements for laboratory balances as described in the relevant chapters of the pharmacopoeias and the associated certificates offered by Sartorius Service.
