Analytical Balances for Laboratory Applications

Analytical balances and Microbalances are precise weighing instruments used to measure mass in the sub-milligram range (up to 0.0001g). They are ideally suited to laboratory environments and can feature pipette calibration, formulation, small animal weighing and density determination applications; some modern digital weighing balances have built-in calibration masses and temperature monitoring to maintain accuracy.

We offer a huge selection of high-end and budget analytical balances to suit any price range. Our premium balances are designed for use by laboratory professionals, with class approved balances often being required for pharmaceutical production. Cheaper analytical balance models host a wide range of weighing applications perfect for university students and food testing. We are proud to announce that we stock the Eclipse range from Adam Equipment.

To achieve best possible results, it is recommended that analytical balances are used on a solid lab bench that is free of vibrations or alongside a purpose-built anti-vibration table.

Using an Analytical Balance

Analytical balances are high precision weighing scales for the most accurate weighing tasks, as a result, it is essential that your balance works optimally. Inscale offers a range of weighing scale accessories that can be used alongside your analytical balance to provide optimum weighing measurements.

Anti-Vibration Tables help stabilise the balance by decreasing vibrations from external sources, such as vehicles passing close by, or from a sudden breeze. Whilst density determination kits are used to weigh the mass of an object in the air, water and other liquids to determine the object's density.

Analytical Balances Help

Q: How accurate is an analytical balance?

A: The accuracy or precision of an analytical balance is model specific and will usually range from 0.1mg to 0.1g readability. Whilst this proves to be one of the most precise digital weighing scale types on the market, it is worth noting that as a rule, the pan size and capacity will be smaller in comparison to precision balances and other types of digital weighing scale. Due to its high precision, the analytical balance is a preferred option for lab based applications.

Q: How to calibrate an analytical balance?

A: To calibrate an analytical balance you will first need to know whether your balance uses internal or external calibration.

Analytical balances with internal calibration can be calibrated automatically by selecting the calibration option in your balance's setup/ calibration menu.

Analytical balances with external calibration will require approved calibration weights which need to be placed on the balance in sequence (using heavier weights to begin, such as 10g weights, moving through to more precise, lighter weights e.g 1mg). There are several Classes of calibration weights including M1, F1 and E2. Standard analytical balances require E2 class weights.

For more information on how to calibrate an analytical balance externally, please see our blog post on how to choose an analytical balance.
