Portability of weighing instruments

There are many situations where weighing in the lab isn’t possible and measurements need to be taken in the field. In these cases, a portable balance is needed and there are various features to consider based on your application to achieve the most reliable results. Not all instruments are considered portable in the same way. These are the main features you need to consider when looking for a ...

Advice for Weighing in the Field

When collecting data, it is not always efficient to take samples back to a laboratory. Sometimes, weighing needs to be done in the field. This does pose many influencing factors on the measurements due to the different environment you are using your scales in. Here we will help you with your measurements out in the field and keep protected from the elements. Precision balances and compact b...

What is Weighing Uncertainty?

When discussing laboratory balances, accuracy and readability are common terms that are used to understand the readings they give. Weighing uncertainty is an important factor, however it is less known and not as discussed. Uncertainty is a variable that can be measured. It is essential, especially for calibration laboratories. It can be useful for the comparison of results from experiments car...

What Laboratory Balance Do I Need?

A laboratory balance is a key piece of equipment in many labs, workplaces and in the field. They are typically used to measure the weight of a sample. As there are variations in material, sample size, and conditions in the work environment, different types of balances exist for specific needs. The balances that will be discussed on this page are: Precision Balances Analytical Balances Micro...

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 ...
