METTLER TOLEDO eLearning Gives You Expert Insight into Implementing USP Guidelines for Balances in Your Pharmaceutical Lab


USP compliance is essential for international pharmaceutical manufacturers and suppliers, particularly if they sell to the North American market. However, strict USP guidelines have also been adopted around the world.

They can generally be considered the universal pharmaceutical standard.

Determining degrees of compliance with June 2013 USP changes to chapters 41 and 1251, however, remains somewhat difficult for many due to the latitude given to pharmaceutical manufacturers to determine their own risk parameters. Is your lab meeting the spirit of the changes?

This eLearning course aims to inform lab personnel about the changes and their impact on lab equipment, including:

  • How often you must qualify balance performance to ensure you pass audit,
  • What minimum weight is and how to calculate it to identify that balances are fit-for-purpose,
  • Determining your requirements for repeatability and accuracy to ensure accurate analytical outcomes, and
  • Why the use and maintenance of calibrated balances is so important for end-product quality, efficacy and safety.

The 60-90 minute course is self-paced. Following successful completion of a final quiz, participants will earn a qualification certificate that can be printed for your internal training records.
