About Seminar
Physical and Chemical Properties Analysis Seminar
Join Konica Minolta Sensing Americas and Mettler Toledo for an exclusive seminar discussing the analysis of color, density, refractive index, and pH levels in food, flavor, fragrance, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical applications. This educational seminar will enhance each guest’s knowledge of evaluating a sample’s physical and chemical properties through an efficient and streamlined process to produce high quality products.

Topics Covered
Chemical Properties Analysis

Good Density and Refractometry Practice™ (GDRP) is a five step program to improve your lab process. It covers the entire lifecycle of your investment and helps to improve quality while reducing risks and costs. Minimizing your risk will improve your performance. In this part of the session, attendees will learn the five steps to process perfection:

  • Evaluation - Current and Future Needs
  • Selection - Identifying the Best Analytical System
  • Installation – Professional, Correct Installation
  • Qualification - Operational Qualification
  • Routine Operation - Expert Training
Color and Appearance Evaluation
Presented by Konica Minolta Sensing Americas

Color evaluation practices are widely employed in laboratory and manufacturing environments to accurately communicate color, identify color attributes and inconsistencies in samples, and ensure color quality standards are met. In this part of the session, attendees will gain a better understanding of color science, how to properly evaluate color, and the components to an effective color quality process.

  • Fundamentals of Color Science
  • How to Quantify and Evaluate Color
  • Color Difference Measurements
  • Tolerances: Is the Color Difference Acceptable?
  • Application Needs and Solutions
