Anti-vibration tables: a solution to increasing laboratory balance accuracy

Some balances can measure minute samples far lighter than a single gram. The accuracy of results when weighing such small samples can often be influenced by external factors from the environment. This includes air-flow, dust & other particles in the air, and even movement around them which can cause vibrations. These effects must be cancelled out to produce the most accurate results. Even ...
