Titration is a simple analytical technique used to evaluate important and often decision-making analytes. Having to reanalyze samples because of uncertainty in values has both direct and indirect costs. The stakes become even higher when dealing with an expensive active ingredient or limited sample. Regardless of your industry, achieving more accurate results that are highly reproducible is the highest performance goal of all QC chemists and R&D scientists.
Having the right instrument and configuration greatly improves accuracy and repeatability while reducing or even removing human error. Learn how you can evaluate the quality of titrations in your lab and uncover potential financial and productivity improvements.
Key learning objectives:
- Learn how running samples unattended improves both data quality and productivity.
- From our application case studies, understand the dollar value of savings from using auto samplers and automation.
- Learn the key principles of titration that help you identify best practices.
