LabX® for Melting Point

Expanded Functionality LabX helps to avoid testing errors by supporting the entire workflow, sending SOP instructions directly to the instrument. Calculations and documentation are completed automatically and results and melting point videos are securely stored in the LabX database. Results can be printed at any time in a personalized report. LabX offers some efficient test workflow supporting methods that are not available in the standalone instruments.
Melting Point Screening How can the melting point of an unknown sample be tested efficiently? A LabX screening test method guides the user through the two-step procedure by displaying instructions directly on the instrument’s touch screen. In the first step the approximately determined melting point is used as a ‘learnt parameter’ for the accurate measurement in the second step.
Interactive melting point At the instrument the user is requested to enter temperature values such as the heating rate and the expected melting point. The optimal start and end temperatures are calculated automatically. A multitude of different samples can be determined with this single method. The result and melting point video are always available for subsequent (visual) inspection.
Mixed melting point 3 different samples, each prepared into 2 capillaries, are measured simultaneously. The mean of each sample pair is automatically calculated. This automated workflow is only supported by the MP90. This is a perfect example of how LabX supports efficient melting point testing.

Optimized Result Overview Both melting point video and transmission curve are clearly presented. The melting point process can be reviewed by simultaneous playback of both transmission curve and video. In the graph a moving cursor indicates the current melting process status in real time.

All measured data and the most important method data are displayed clearly in the table underneath.
Result Outlier Check The melting point is usually determined from an average of multiple measurements. In order to identify outliers that may originate from improper capillary filling, a statistical check procedure, the Grubb’s outlier test, can be programmed in the method. This test provides an unambiguous assessment of the measurement with a clear recommendation, whether the test should be repeated or not.
Repetition of Analysis If the measured melting point does not pass the test criteria the method sequence automatically prompts the operator to repeat the measurement. If the test does not pass the second time, the result is labeled accordingly and a message is displayed on the instrument. LabX even provides the option of sending this message via Email to the account of a responsible person in charge of quality control.
Automatic Result Assessment Result assessment is of paramount importance in a QC laboratory, e.g. in pharmaceutical ingredients testing. Up to three result tolerance levels can be defined in LabX, which automatically assess the measured melting point compared to the value of a reference substance. The respective results are clearly highlighted with color-coded tags and comments in the result overview.
User Management
Define users (Individual users) and roles (Lab Technician, Lab Manager, Quality Control, Administrator, etc.) in the LabX® software. Access to functionality is based on the defined rights each user or role is given. Login to all your instruments and PCs on your LabX network with the same username and password.
Auto Import / Export
Simply define the export settings for your results and sample series for automated file creation in a defined directory. With a simple process, import your tasks and sample series automatically into LabX creating tasks or even start the analyses directly. Import and export data directly in CSV and XML formats. Exporting and importing was never more powerful and able to meet your needs.
Product Database
Manage product data centrally — run methods based on product data - e.g. incoming goods, raw materials, flavors & fragrances, etc. The operator simply chooses the product on the instrument and has all relevant SOPs and analysis regarding the product at their fingertips. The Product Database option allows the user to define products based on the given methods and even start tasks based on a specific product.
Statistical Evaluation
The feature of statistical evaluations provides functionality to analyse how your process and measurements change over time. Your applicable process regulations can effortlessly be monitored, assisting in staying always under control.
This option includes audit trail and e-signatures (releasing and signing) of methods (SOPs), reports, results, etc. electronic signature is possible via username and password. With the regulation option combined with the user management option, your system will be audit ready at any time.

* Only available with LabX Server
System Integration*
Bring your tasks directly to the instrument’s touch screen with bi-directional integration into your ELN, LIMS, or ERPs. Much more than just capturing data from an instrument, the LabX system integration option allows bi-directional integration. Centrally start and control tasks directly from your ELN or LIMS. These 3rd party systems are able to send tasks directly to the METTLER TOLEDO instrument touchscreen terminal.

* Only available with LabX Server
Advanced Report Designer*
The Advanced Report Designer goes beyond the flexibility in the standard LabX report editor for completely flexible layouts. This advanced design of your LabX reports allows you to freely customize reports with all details and possibilities like charts, plots, and tables.

* Only available with LabX Server
