Mettler-Toledo today announced an upcoming webinar entitled “Worry-free weighing: Dealing with static and drafts”, featuring guest presenter Prof. Dr. Peter Ryser, from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne. This webinar will be presented on October 9, 2014 at 08:00 PST, 11:00 EDT, 15:00 GMT; 17:00 CET.

Many factors that can influence weighing accuracy are often overlooked. In this free educational webinar, laboratory managers and professionals will learn about the latest developments to tackle challenges caused by external influences.

This 60-min webinar will describe the impact of environmental influences on weighing accuracy and provide advice on how to minimize the impact of air turbulence and drafts, temperature differences and electrostatic charges. Discover how the latest developments in weighing technology, including methods and accessories for analytical and precision balances, can help to reduce or even eliminate these influencing factors, to make the tasks of a balance user more straightforward and less prone to error.

After the webinar, attendees should be able to: improve weighing accuracy by recognizing common external influences; understand how to control electrostatic influences on weighing results; discover how to manage temperature differences to maximize the accuracy of weighing; recognize the corrective measures that can be implemented to eliminate the effect of drafts or air turbulence on the weighing result.

This webinar will be hosted by Pharnaceutical Technology on October 9, 2014 at 08:00 PDT, 11:00 EDT, 15:00 GMT; 16:00 BST; 17:00 CET. Event registration is at:
