Press Release: Discover the Benefits of Automated Dispensing with a New Case Study from METTLER TOLEDO
The manual handling of active substances in pharmaceutical development requires special procedures and focused attention.However, a new ETC case study shows that automated dosing can reduce exposure risk while increasing sample-preparation speed.

Greifensee, Switzerland—September 1, 2019—Pharmaceutical companies are working with increasingly potent and active compounds. These active ingredients are often dosed at very small amounts (one milligram or less).
Being able to offer such potent compounds allows patients to take smaller doses and potentially experience fewer side effects. However, these compounds also pose a greater threat to the health of the people who might be exposed to them during development and formulation.
One specific hazard found in the development or formulation process is exposure to airborne contaminants during dispensing and handling. This hazard can be made worse by typical manual weighing procedures.
Fortunately, automated powder dosing can essentially eliminate this risk while enhancing the accuracy and speed of the dosing process, as shown in a recent series of studies mounted by the Enabling Technologies Consortium (ETC) featuring major pharmaceutical and biotech companies.
The ETC study compared the accuracy and speed of several automated platforms by dispensing small amounts of seven reference powders in various laboratory settings. METTLER TOLEDO Quantos stood out by demonstrating an unmatched ability to successfully handle small amounts of challenging powders inside various containment systems.
See how safety and efficiency in R&D can be increased, reducing both operator risk and lead times for new treatments. Download the ETC Powder Dispensing Case Study during the month of September.
