As Green Chemistry becomes high profile and pressure mounts on the pharmaceutical industry to become more environmentally cognizant, how can we justify these methods?
Gravimetric sample preparation can be employed which has some key benefits. Reducing the quantities prepared has a significant impact on the amount of solvent and substance consumed, and the amount of waste generated during an analytical workflow. Weighing smaller amounts of sample can be achieved, whilst maintaining compliance with GLP/GMP and USP regulations, without risk to the accuracy or confidence in the result.
Quantos dosing systems with automated powder and liquid dispensing support gravimetric sample preparation. Only the quantity required can be prepared in a small vial directly on the balance. No need to use volumetric flasks and prepare large amounts of sample or standard.
