Minimum Weight and Routine Testing According General Chapters 41 and 1251
Dr. Klaus Fritsch
Weighing is one of the key activities carried out in every QC laboratory. Usually, it is one of the first parts of a whole analysis chain. As any weighing errors have the potential to propagate through the whole analysis and deliver an inaccurate final result, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has set stringent requirements for balances used for weighing analytes for quantitative measures.
