High throughput powder dispensing can increase productivity in pharmaceutical R&D workflows, such as screening and solubility testing. The pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency of drug development has fostered the growth of high throughput experimentation (HTE), which is made possible by innovations in laboratory automation.
This poster describes a benchmarking study of automated powder dispensing systems, conducted by the Enabling Technologies Consortium (ETC), which compared several commercially available automated powder dispensing technologies. Quantos from METTLER TOLEDO proved to be accurate and reliable for dispensing small quantities of a wide range of powder types, commonly found in the laboratory. The latest innovation in this product family is the CHRONECT Quantos – a fully automated platform incorporating the trusted Quantos powder dispensing technology – enabling automated dispensing of 32 different powders into plate formats.
