In the highly regulated pharmaceutical and medical device industries, even the smallest inconsistencies can lead to serious product issues. As weighing instruments and applications are present in almost every stage of a manufacturing workflow, they can strongly influence the quality and integrity of the final product.
Good Manufacturing Practice or GMP is a regulation that is applicable to any pharmaceutical production process. It ensures that pharmaceutical products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize risks that can occur throughout the manufacturing process that cannot be eliminated by testing the final product.
In many countries, GMP has been integrated into national laws which must be followed by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
This webinar explains what calibration and qualification of weighing instruments are and why these related concepts are important for Good Manufacturing Practice. It also shows how to seamlessly incorporate these important concepts into a weighing process to ensure both weighing accuracy and product quality.
