Mettler Toledo highlights benefits of compact dosing system

11th September 2009

Mettler Toledo has pointed out the benefits of using its compact dosing system almost one year after it was first launched.

Called Quantos, the equipment makes weighing powders as small as 10 mgs easier, as dosing to the target weight is up to 20 times faster than with the use of a spatula.

In what the firm claims is an "industry first", technicians can dose 10 mg of powder within official recommendations – something it says can increase the productivity and safety of employees.

Furthermore, the equipment is "compact, affordable" and boasts patented dispensing technology that is designed to "bridge the gap between manual powder weighing and full automation".

These attributes resulted in Quantos being bestowed with the Association of Laboratory Automation’s New Product Award of 2009 in January.

Mettler Toledo was founded in 1945 by Swiss engineer Dr Erhard Mettler, who started his precision mechanics company in Kusnacht.
