Weighing is one of the most common laboratory tasks. Micro, semi-micro, analytical, and precision balances are now perfected to such a degree that, in general, special weighing rooms are no longer needed.
However, with these advances comes the risk that not enough care will be taken to prevent factors that can damage accuracy, particularly in micro and semi-micro ranges. The good news is that these effects can be eliminated with the right precautions.
“Weighing the Right Way”, a new free guide from Mettler Toledo, details the potential for physical effects as well as forces that can act on the weighing pan or sample in day-to-day lab operations. It also provides the tips and tricks that will help users mitigate these factors in the lab setting to enhance weighing accuracy.
Critical weighing concepts such as linearity, measurement uncertainty, and minimum weight will also be defined and their importance discussed.
Discover the steps that lead to flawless balance operation and improved weighing results by downloading “Weighing the Right Way” throughout the month of January.
