COLUMBUS, Ohio (August 15, 2013) – METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a complimentary webinar on Safe Automated Weighing of Potent Compounds lead by Dr. Roy Helmy from Merck & Co., Inc.

In the pharmaceutical industry, laboratories are increasingly handling potent compounds; and the potency of the powders is increasing. Consequently, safety is a high profile topic. Companies have a legal requirement to minimize their personnel’s risk of exposure by providing effective containment facilities and personal protective equipment (PPE). Automated powder weighing delivers an efficient combination of containment strategy and improved sample handling techniques to support these requirements.

In this 45-minute webcast, Dr. Helmy explains how the use of automated dosing, a HEPA-filtered VBE and good potent compound handling techniques has eliminated the need to utilize an isolator to precisely weigh small quantities of OEB 5 compounds for analytical testing in his laboratory.
