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 professional guideline.

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 procedures.
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.
