Mettler Toledo Launches the SmartCal Reference Substance
Product News Mar 19, 2012
Mettler Toledo has launched the innovative SmartCal reference substance, designed to verify and document moisture analyzer performance with a simple 10-minute test.
SmartCal is a new quality control check 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.
A user-friendly, 10-minute test
The SmartCal test is easy to perform and requires only 10 minutes. Each single-use sachet contains 8.5 g of the defined moisture content reference substance.
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.
SmartCal is the easier and simpler alternative to the traditional, tedious method for testing moisture analyzers that involves using a weight for balance calibration and performing temperature calibration with a thermometer.
Regular moisture analyzer monitoring with SmartCal ensures that instrument performance is in accordance with specifications.
Maintaining a control chart of test results provides audit-ready documentation on instrument performance, avoiding any auditor issues.
Certified SmartCal (cSmartCal) is supplied with a Certificate of Analysis issued by the independent German Federal Institute of Materials Research and Testing in Berlin.
Instrument specifications, recommended test frequencies, testing SOPs and control limits are all included in the SmartCal package.
