Weighing precision management: How to meet USP41 compliance
14 Jan 2021

Measuring weight with accuracy and precision remains one of the most vital requirements for scientists working in regulated, life science, pharmaceutical or QC laboratories.

In this webinar, A&D Instruments’ Senior Product Manager of Laboratory Solutions, Jennifer Block, will provide an overview of the innovative solutions found in the A&D Apollo series of analytical laboratory balances. She will explain how electronically controlled load (ECL) technology allows automatic precision assessment at the touch of a button, without the need for external weights and service bodies that cost time, money, and can introduce uncertainties. The advantages and applications of informational tools enabled by ECL technology such as diagnostic check (Dia-check), QuickMin-S and Min-S-Alert will also be discussed, with particular reference to how these features can enable users and service technicians to ensure operations are USP41 compliant.

How these balances can be used to determine minimum sample weight in extremely challenging environments such as fume or laminar flow hoods and production lines will also be demonstrated. Critically, innovations within the Apollo series that ensure preventative maintenance, protection management, and adherence to good data management, documentation and compliance practices will be highlighted.
