Time: 09:00 AM Central European Summer Time
Location: Location of the webinar
Duration: 1 Hour
On-demand webinar recording

Volumetric Karl Fischer (KF) titration is an absolute method for the determination of the water content and the reference method in many industries. The analytical sequence is influenced by several important factors:

  • selection of the correct titrant and working medium
  • selection of the correct certified standard for titer determination
  • conditioning of the titration cell to ensure that the working medium is water free before sample addition
  • sample addition and transfer of the sample weight, especially for a back-weighing procedure
  • titer determination of the KF titrant
  • the Karl Fischer titration itself – never miss the right moment for titration start
  • replacement of the working medium when it is exhausted or when the titration vessel is full

OMNIS – Metrohm’s new titration platform and the NextGen Smart Reagents from Honeywell offer the most advanced solution for this. Learn how manual handling of titrant data can be avoided and how your SOP can be fully programmed as an operating procedure in the OMNIS software. In that way, every step of the analysis is recorded in the software and there is no more need for a separate paper documentation. Full data integrity is guaranteed!

By attending this webinar, you will learn…

  • how modern Karl Fischer titrators improve safety in the lab and can prevent handling or application errors
  • how modern KF reagents can help to prevent data handling errors
  • how you simplify your documentation and maintain data security and integrity

Who should attend?

Lab chemists, laboratory managers, quality control professionals, pharmaceutical industry professionals or simply everybody that is interested in titration.
