COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 19, 2014) – METTLER TOLEDO is proud to announce the introduction of Good
Melting and Dropping Point Practice™ (GMDP). GMDP is a five-step guideline which covers the entire
life cycle of instruments and helps to improve quality while reducing risk and costs.
Eliminating Risk – Reducing Running Costs
Measuring melting point is a common and easy analysis but things
can go wrong. The same goes for dropping point and softening
point measurement. METTLER TOLEDO aims to assist customers
in reducing errors, getting accurate results quickly and enhancing
their overall lab performance. At the same time significant running
cost reduction can be achieved if the instrumentation is selected
according to a risk-based evaluation of the application process
and is professionally commissioned, installed, maintained
and calibrated. With the risk check, a tool for analyzing
possible sources of error in melting or dropping/softening point
measurement, major risks can easily be determined and weighted.
Easy Five Step Approach
GMDP makes sure that the right equipment is used in a suitable environment by appropriately trained
operators. Risks associated with these measurements are diminished thanks to a comprehensive and
1. Evaluation – Based on a thorough analysis of sample properties and standards that determine the
respective analytical standard operating procedure, GMDP compiles a recommendation for the most
suitable analytical instrument solution and corresponding service plan.
2. Selection – Recommendations take into account current and future analytical requirements
including PC software-based instrument and data management for melting point determination.
3. Installation – Skilled members of the service team execute the installation of the instrument. GMDP
ensures that this process is professionally administered according to comprehensive and wellestablished
4. Qualification – After installation, the system has to be qualified for the operations it needs to fulfill.
Professional commissioning and qualification of the analytical instrument is required. All activities
are documented to provide audit proof documentation fulfilling the highest standards.
5. Routine Operation – In order to ensure measurement accuracy and reliability, GMDP recommends
periodic preventive maintenance visits performed and documented according to application specific
SOPs. Beyond that, GMDP provides professional training documentation in order to establish and
maintain a high-level of training.
Increasing Lab Performance
The instruments of the Melting and Dropping Point Excellence line provide outstanding performance
in automatic determination of melting, dropping and softening points with respect to accuracy,
standard compliancy and operational security. The GMDP supporting tools have been created with the
customers’ applications in mind. Uptime is increased and expertise is enhanced. METTLER TOLEDO’s
sales and service team can be contacted any time for on-site trainings or web-based seminars.
