Sample preparation is the starting point of any analysis. The innovative Quantos automated dosing system has been in use in the laboratories of international pharmaceutical group Daiichi Sankyo for many years with great success. The analytical department of Daiichi Sankyo in Pfaffenhofen in Germany is a driver of innovation, focusing on the development, optimization and a validation of various methods for analysis of pharmaceutical and medical products. Using automated sample preparation gives this analytical laboratory numerous benefits. Read about their use of automated powder and liquid dosing to create accurate solutions in less time in this case study.
This case study describes how Daiichi Sankyo have optimized processes and improved user protection by implementing the automated sample preparation system, Quantos, from Mettler Toledo. Dosing of powdered samples is achieved in a closed system, which prevents user exposure to the substances, enhancing safety. Smaller quantities of solution can be prepared, saving precious substances which may be expensive or only available in limited amounts. More accurate solutions are prepared, with automatic calculations and recording of concentration data with no chance of errors. This avoids the costly re-work associated with mistakes in sample preparation.
However, for Daiichi Sankyo the most significant benefit of using automated sample preparation is the time saved when dosing with Quantos compared to manual weighing and the cleaning required after using the balance.
"Now that Quantos has been installed, no-one wants to work manually anymore!"
"Investing in Quantos systems paid for itself in no time."
