Accurate Powder Dispensing Increases Lab Productivity

Jan 21 2019 Read 913 Times

In many laboratories, accurate weighing of small quantities of powders is an important step, but often a bottleneck. How can powder dispensing efficiency be improved?

The new ‘ETC Powder Dispensing Study’ describes a benchmarking study conducted by the Enabling Technologies Consortium™ (ETC), a collaboration of leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. They compared the capabilities of four commercially available powder dispensing systems in order to assess their suitability for use in high-throughput experimentation (HTE). Seven challenging reference substances were carefully selected to represent the diverse range of powder characteristics encountered in a typical R&D laboratory. Dispensing of 2 – 50 mg was carried out on an open bench or within various containment devices (fume hood, purge box, glove box, LEV) and dispense accuracy and speed were recorded.

The ‘ETC Powder Dispensing Study’ demonstrates that Mettler Toledo Quantos was able to accurately and reliably dispense all powder types, even at the lowest target weights, with the location of the instrument having minimal effect on the results obtained. With no complicated set-up, optimisation of parameters or selection of dosing head required, Quantos was also the fastest and easiest system to use.

Ease the bottleneck and increase productivity in your laboratory by automating the powder dispensing steps in your screening, chemical development, formulation, and capsule filling applications.
