Application Highlight: Cubis II Loss on Drying
Loss on Drying is a back-weighing application to determine the amount of volatile matter in tablets, capsules, or bulky material. Samples are weighed before and after treatment, and the weight difference is measured. According to the US Pharmacopoeia Chapter 731 (USP Chapter 731) 1–2 g of sample is mixed; for large particles the size is reduced to about 2 mm by quickly crushing. If tablets are to be tested, the powder of not less than 4 tablets must be used; For capsules, the mixed contents of not less than 4 capsules must be used.
Whitepaper: Magnetism—an Influencing Factor on Weighing
Magnetism and electricity are natural phenomena, which have been known since ancient times. In 1820, Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted noticed that a compass needle was deflected when held near a wire through which an electric current flowed. He concluded that a current-carrying conductor is surrounded by a magnetic field that affects the compass needle. Today, the interaction of electricity and magnetism is explained using an elegant physical theory summed up in the Maxwell equations.

Application Highlight: Standard Preparation with Cubis®️ II
External standards are separate samples used for comparison to test samples, whereas internal standards are added to the samples to be analyzed. However, all standards have a defined concentration of one or several known component(s). The concentration of these standards must be as accurate as possible to prevent subsequent errors in determining unknown concentrations in samples.
