Webinar Presenting "A Unique Workflow for Linearity Testing using Automated Sample Preparation and UHPLC"

Press release date: January 10, 2011

Greifensee, January 10, 2011 - METTLER TOLEDO today announced an upcoming webinar in collaboration with Dionex Corporation which will describe a unique, automated approach to linearity testing to shorten workflow and reduce the error rate. The sample preparation process will be discussed as well as UHPLC analysis, data evaluation and report generation. The Webinar will be hosted on January 20, 2011 at 11:00 EST (16:00 GMT) by Pharmaceutical Technology. The International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) recommends ways to achieve greater harmonisation in the interpretation and application of technical guidelines during the research and development of new medicines. When validating a method according to the ICH guidelines, it is necessary to perform a linearity experiment. This requires the preparation of multiple calibration levels, analysis of the samples by liquid chromatography, and calculation/reporting of the results. Each of these steps can be very time consuming, and in many cases error prone. This is especially true if the analytical method being tested requires the measurement of multiple components. In this free webinar Dr Joanne Ratcliff, Marketing Project Manager from Mettler Toledo, and Fraser McLeod, Senior Director of Product Marketing from Dionex Corporation, present a new way to tackle these challenges. The webinar demonstrates an automated approach to sample preparation, the use of UHPLC to speed-up the analysis, and the use of advanced software tools for calculation and reporting of the results. When used in combination, these tools substantially shorten the linearity workflow, and significantly reduce error rate. This webinar is of interest to those who has to manually prepare samples and standards, who work in pharmaceutical method development and QA/QC, and who want to learn how UHPLC can improve productivity in their lab. The key learning objectives of this webinar are: how automated sample preparation can save time and reduce error, how UHPLC can reduce sample analysis time by a factor of 5 or more and how a chromatography data system can fully automate calculation of the results Event Details This event is being held on January 20, 2011 at 08:00 PST, 11:00 EST, 16:00 GMT; 17:00 CET You can register for this event at the following link: About METTLER TOLEDO METTLER TOLEDO is a leading global supplier of precision instruments and services.
