Lab/Precision Balances

High-Quality Lab/Precision Balances

You need highly accurate results from your lab balances and precision weighing solutions. Reliable analytical results depend on many factors, including the initial sample, its preparation, the quality of the lab or precision balance itself, and more. With up to 60% of laboratory time spent preparing samples, you need weighing solutions that ensure accurate results the first time to avoid out-of-spec errors and costly re-working. System Scale proudly offers a wide selection of lab/precision balances to fit any precision-weighing need.

Accurate Weighing Solutions


Precision laboratory balances (also called top-loading balances) are scales designed to offer highly accurate results within the sub-milligram range when measuring small samples. Precision balances provide an accurate, quick, and easy method for determining the weight of items such as particulate matter. Electronic precision balances offer a wide range of weighing capacities, with maximum capacities of up to 64 kg.

Precision balances produce steady readings in a greater range of environmental conditions than other balances, which require specific conditions to ensure accurate readings. Precision balances are less sensitive to temperature fluctuations and air currents, making them a preferred measuring method.

Cleaning & Maintenance

If you work in a laboratory, you know that cleanliness significantly impacts safety. Proper maintenance can minimize cross-contamination risk, enhance user safety, increase operating reliability, and reduce equipment failure rates.

There are 6 steps to maintaining a clean balance:

  1. Understand that cleansing is essential
  2. Determine which cleansing agents to use
  3. Schedule a time to clean the balance
  4. Perform balance cleansing procedures
  5. Clean weighing instruments
  6. Avoid soiling the balances
