METTLER TOLEDO’s Application streamlines Loss-on-Drying procedure
METTLER TOLEDO (Switzerland) – Differential weighing is a common routine application in most laboratories. A new application included in firmware version 3.50 for METTLER TOLEDO’s MS-TS analytical balances can streamline differential-weighing workflows for loss-on-drying and other important procedures and analyses.

Determining the difference between initial and final weights of samples before and after processing is one of the most frequently used applications in a laboratory. However, routine workflows tend to be time-consuming and error-prone due to the high level of manual operations involved, particularly when handling more than one sample or sample type.

Now, METTLER TOLEDO MS-TS analytical balances offer an alternative to complex manual workflows in industries such as food, chemical, pharmaceuticals, testing labs and water/waste management. The updated firmware integrated in MS-TS balances includes a free, on-board differential-weighing application to improve speed and accuracy when handling samples and ensure the correct attribution of results.

Typical applications for this type of differential-weighing application include:
  • Loss-on-drying/loss-on-ignition
  • Water absorption
  • Wear-off analysis
  • Metal treatment/coating
  • Filter weighing (e.g. in sewage plants)
  • Solution and buffer preparation

The ease of using the application for moisture-content determination is described in a new application note entitled “Moisture Determination in QC: The Drying-Oven Reference Method.” The paper walks readers through a real-world example, showing how the differential-weighing application helps streamline these workflows, especially when combined with a handheld barcode reader and label printer.

To learn how the MS-TS application can help you ensure accuracy and easy sample-handling in all your differential-weighing applications, click the link below. For an example of the firmware in action, download “Moisture Determination in QC: The Drying-Oven Reference Method”.
