Revised USP Chapter <841> enables 50% OOS reduction!

May 30 2013 Comments 0

The two largest sources of laboratory errors come from sample processing (30%) and human operation (19%). In addition, the amount of laboratory time spent processing samples is estimated to be greater than 60%.

The revised USP Chapter <841> Specific Gravity posted in February 2013 states that samples can now be prepared by weight, as well as by the historical method of volume.

Gravimetric liquid dispensing compensates for any under or overshoot of the sample weight to produce extremely accurate, confirmed concentrations. Stock and final solutions are prepared in fewer steps and with minimal human interaction.

Implementing a gravimetric sample preparation system reduces laboratory errors and Out-of-Specification (OOS) incidents by up to 50%, while increasing laboratory efficiency.
