Quality control is an essential part of maintaining data integrity and that includes keeping your lab balance in proper working order. Accurate weighing results are critical in research and manufacturing. In some applications, inaccurate weighing results could compromise not only data, but also become a safety risk.
Platform scales can be found nearly anywhere: factories, shipping and receiving departments, mailrooms, warehouses and loading docks use them to weigh large, bulky or oversized items, including boxes, shipping crates, pallets, barrels, drums and luggage. In this post, we’ll walk you through one of the harder questions you may have to ask yourself: how do I choose the right platform scale?
Environmental scientists focus on the planet and the environment, but what does that have to do with scales? Laboratory balances play a critical role in weighing soil, water, vegetation, metals and waste. They’re used to measure key factors in soil, water, air and vegetation to improve sustainability, conservation and predictions of environmental shifts like global climate change.
Silk – derived from the cocoons of silk moths and one of the oldest fabrics known to mankind – is considered one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. Besides comfort, it offers benefits to your hair and skin, as well as helping to regulate body temperature.
Laboratory balances come in a few different shapes and sizes, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Since they’re highly specialised equipment, it’s important to know the distinctions between semi-micro, analytical, precision, and top-loading balances. This blog post will do just that, using our Equinox, Solis and Luna balances as examples.
Moisture analysis is a key component of quality testing in domains ranging from construction to food production. The pharmaceutical industry is no exception, but how moisture content relates to medicine might not be intuitive. In this post, we’ll explain why moisture analysis is so important for the pharmaceutical field and how a moisture analyser can help.
