Debottlenecking R&D with Automated Powder Dispensing

The Enabling Technologies Consortium™ (ETC) - group of major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies  - has published a new study on powder dispensing with the aim of easing R&D bottlenecks, particularly in high-throughput experimentation.

In an effort to understand the relative merits and disadvantages of existing automated powder dispensing technologies, an independent evaluation was carried out by the ETC's High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) working group. This working group comprised of AstraZeneca (AZ), Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Merck & Co., and Pfizer. The study evaluated four commercially available automated powder dispensing platforms, including Quantos from METTLER TOLEDO, to assess their abilities to accurately weigh a wide range of different powder types into vials.

The results of this benchmarking study, entitled "Collaborative Evaluation of Commercially Available Automated Powder Dispensing Platforms for High Throughput Experimentation in Pharmaceutical Applications", were presented at Pittcon 2018 [1] and will be published in OPRD [2].
