RADWAG Balances and Instruments Used in the Pharmaceutical Industry Worldwide

In order to be used in the pharmaceutical industry, balances must meet a number of requirements. The most important are:

·      weighing precision

·      measurement safety

·      compliance with regulations: 21 CFR Part 11, GMP, GLP and USP

·      compatibility with external software (LIMS, WERUM)

·      ensuring data integrity

·      guaranteed cost optimisation.

The best weighing precision is guaranteed especially by those balances with the readability of 0.1 µg.

By measurement safety we mean regularly conducted routine tests, because this is what ensures the weighing accuracy. Best of all, you don't have to remember when your next tests are due - instead, you can program the balance to remind you.

The 21 CFR Part 11, GMP, GLP and USP regulations are formal requirements that balances must meet to be approved for use in the pharmaceutical industry.

External software such as LIMS or WERUM is dedicated to laboratory processes and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. This means that the measuring instruments used in these environments are compatible with this software.

Data integrity is ensured by the large selection of easily accessible databases that balances used in the pharmaceutical industry must have.

And last but not least - money. The economic aspect is crucial for any pharmaceutical company. This type of company may weigh a few hundred samples a day, so balances allowing to cut one sample cost in a larger scale (100, 500 and 1 000 samples; month, quarter and year) will provide a real profit.

In the case of RADWAG balances, we can place a plus next to each of these features, which is why our products are so eagerly chosen by pharmaceutical companies.

Have You Made These Mistakes Yourself Too? Inappropriate Conditions in the Weighing Room

When we select a weighing instrument, we mainly pay attention to its parameters. This is because we are of the opinion that the guarantee of the greatest accuracy and the best indication repeatability goes to the parameters. Is it really so?

Safety of Mass Measurement in Pharmaceutical Industry. Basic Metrological Tests (part I)

Nowadays many devices, including weighing instruments, are operated intuitively and there is no need to deeply analyse how they work. Deep analysis, however, is required in the pharmaceutical industry, where the accuracy is a foundation for medicine quality and cut in cost coming from research and technological process.

Why Is the New Kilogram Better? On the Revolution in the International SI System of Units and the Redefinition of the Mass Standard.

The kilogram standard was the last in the entire international SI system of measures to be based on an artefact. It was a cylinder of platinum and iridium (90% Pt and 10% Ir) with a height equal to the diameter of about 39 mm.
