To ensure that a new balance delivers the ongoing accuracy required by lab processes, Mettler Toledo’s Laboratory Weighing Service and Good Weighing Practice (GWP) personnel have teamed up to develop a simple, three-step approach that will help users choose the right instrument. The three steps are:
1. GWP Recommendation, a free of charge evaluation service, helps to ensure that the balance selected meets the accuracy requirements of the lab’s day-to-day weighing processes.
2. Installation Pacs provide professional balance installation and qualification based on the industry and work environment. This ensures that new equipment is up and running on time and can immediately deliver results that meet productivity, quality and regulatory requirements.
3. Prove required accuracy -- GWP Verification demonstrates equipment accuracy and defines the optimal calibration and testing plan. Based on a calibration that determines measurement uncertainty and minimum weight on site, GWP® Verification ensures performance requirements are met on an ongoing basis.
In summary, these three steps reportedly provide the foundation for years of successful analysis and development in the lab.
