Analytical balances are at the heart of virtually all quantitative analyses in the lab - and the error risk inherent in manual transcription can have a profound impact on results quality. Consider switching to digital data handling to significantly reduce error potential.
Accurate weighing and data integrity are essential when preparing reference solutions and buffers, taking aliquots of samples for analysis and more. This means that the integrity of weighing data must be in tact to ensure accuracy for downstream processes.
But many things can go wrong when weighing a sample and recording data manually. Tired eyes can misread balance displays, distracted brains can make calculation errors, and simple numerical transposition can cause perfectly good analyses to go wrong. In turn, errors can lead to rework, waste, and higher processing costs. They can even put consumers at risk.
In your copy of METTLER TOLEDO’s free reference paper "Management of Weighing Data: From Paper to Digital," you will learn that there are several levels of improvement you can make to data-handling, up to and including going fully digital. The paper review manual transcription and offer solutions for improving data handling such as printers, PC connectivity and integrated data-capture/centralized storage.
