Editorial Article: Trending in Lab Essentials: Reducing Hands-On Time for Basic Processes in Your Lab

Free up your time in the lab for the work that really matters

01 Jul 2019

We all wish we had a little more time to focus on the work that really makes a difference. Whether due to something unexpected happening, too many fiddly admin tasks or just because things don’t go quite as smoothly as you’d hoped, time always seems to have a way of getting away from you.  It’s clear that you can never be prepared enough, so we’ve put together a collection of resources to help you speed up your processes, improve efficiency and optimize some of the tasks that are often a drain on your precious time in the lab.

Solvent Evaporation Masterclass


Introduction to Solvent Evaporation

While solvent removal is an intrinsic step in so many applications, it’s rare to find an evaporation expert in a laboratory, and many facilities use systems that are slow and cumbersome simply because they have always been used. With the technologies available today there is no reason why evaporation should be either complex or labor-intensive, and changing practices can result in benefits in throughput and quality of results.

Balancing the Scales


Everything Different, Nothing Changes: Redefinition of the SI Unit Kilogram

In 1889, the first General Conference of Weights and Measures (GCPM) adopted the International Prototype Kilogram (IPK) as the definition for the unit, which has remained unchanged until now. During the past few years, Mettler-Toledo has participated in several partnerships that have contributed to the newly established and highly stable kilogram definition. The 1 kg redefinition is part of the biggest overhaul of the International System of Units (SI) since its inception in 1960.
