Gravimetric sample preparation – reducing sample size and OOS errors

The benefits of gravimetric sample preparation compared to traditional volumetric methods

Over 50% of out-of-specification (OOS) results in analytical workflows are reportedly caused by sample processing and operator errors. Using automated Gravimetric Sample Preparation and following the Good Weighing Practice™ (GWP®) can help reduce data variability and OOS results. Find out about the benefits of Gravimetric Sample Preparation compared to traditional volumetric methods.

By automating solid and liquid dispensing to prepare precise concentrations, dilution errors and the human element are removed – ensuring that you are within the specifications. Commonly, 60% of FTE time in an analytical laboratory is spent on sample processing, a tedious and time-consuming job. On top of this, many laboratories tend to test their weighing equipment too often and perform the wrong kinds of tests, further reducing the productivity of their scientists.

A new white paper has been published that compares gravimetric dispensing to traditional volumetric methods and gives insight into innovative ideas to help you simplify your work and free more time to concentrate on more rewarding tasks. Read how to implement new techniques to improve sample preparation workflows and reduce the risk of out-of-specification results!
