Reference Substance for Verifying Moisture Analyzer Performance

March 27, 2012

METTLER TOLEDO’s innovative SmartCal reference substance is designed to verify and document moisture analyzer performance with a simple 10-minute test. SmartCal is based on a certified and traceable reference substance, which verifies instrument performance with a simple 10-minute moisture measurement. SmartCal fulfills the quality management system requirements of the food sector (BRC, IFS), the pharmaceutical industry (GMP, USP <1058>), and also meets ISO 9001. Each single-use sachet contains 8.5 grams of the reference substance that has a defined moisture content. The user simply places the contents of the sachet in the moisture analyzer and presses “Start.” A straightforward Pass/Fail notification confirms if the result is within the specified SmartCal control limits, and the instrument is ready for use.
