Greifensee, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 31, 2016
In the highly competitive pharmaceutical industry, there is intense focus on laboratory efficiency. However, there are also stringent regulations to adhere to. To help maintain regulatory compliance and optimize lab performance, METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present the second edition of its weighing guide, “Efficient Workflows in the Pharmaceutical Industry.”
The guide discusses how careful lab-procedure analysis, elimination of inefficiencies, and—as much as possible—standardization of processes are keys to achieving both optimum performance and excellent accuracy. These actions remain constant regardless of the oversight system a lab adheres to, including Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
The updated and expanded edition of the guide includes five workflows:
1. Capsule filling
2. Culture media preparation
3. Titration sample preparation
4. Reference standards and solutions preparation
5. Quantitative elemental analysis sample preparation
Challenges inherent to each workflow, such as repetitive actions, tight tolerances, user ergonomics, and process hygienics are discussed in detail. Solutions such as process changes, special accessories, and automation are then reviewed, allowing the reader to determine the level of handling required in his or her lab.
Data integrity, connectivity, and workflow guidance are also discussed. To identify potential pitfalls in current processes and effectively streamline workflows in pharmaceutical R&D, quality control or production lab, download the new edition of our free pharmaceutical weighing guide today.
