Titration is a quantitative chemical analysis method to determine the unknown concentration of any substance, such as a raw material, substance or finished good. It is a widely used method that has been included in most of the key international pharmacopoeias and other regulations.
Volumetric titration is not an absolute method since the result is influenced by the titration equipment, the temperature and other laboratory conditions. It is recommended to determine the titer of volumetric solutions to receive reliable and transparent results. The following points influence the titration results:
We offer a wide range of innovative reagents and solutions for titration:
As with all analytical procedures it is also essential with titrimetry to determine results with high accuracy. The method used must be adapted to the problem; suitable working procedures and a reproducible and traceable documentation of results must be present. It cannot be described as a whole how a quality management system for titrimetric analyses must be arranged. The respective circumstances and requirements have to be considered: who titrates what, by which means and with which accuracy? This must be documented in a traceable way. Erroneously quality management is sometimes understood as:
These not very expensive activities are, for the following reasons, only a small basis for comprehensive analytical results:
