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:
- 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.
