Weighing is one of the most common tasks in the laboratory. Advanced micro, semi-micro, analytical and precision balances have now been perfected to such a degree that, in general, no special weighing rooms are needed. The purpose of our guide is to explain the most important points to be considered when working with balances to achieve high-quality results.

However, even though technological progress has made weighing a simpler task than in the past, there is an inherent risk that disturbing influences from the surrounding area, such as sunlight or body heat from a person nearby, will affect accuracy.

To overcome these challenges, METTLER TOLEDO has developed the handbook "Proper weighing with laboratory Balances" to provide in-depth information on weighing. The comprehensive 35 page document addresses beginners with a basic understanding as well as professionals who would like to refresh their fundamental knowledge of the subject.

The weighing Guide covers all relevant topics, starting from giving advice on the right location and operation of the balance; it explains physical influences that affect weighing results and gives an explanation of technical terms.

In order to have the most common weighing tips & tricks at hand, METTLER TOLEDO has also created a weighing tips and tricks poster. To assist those working in labs, the poster provides a useful refresher on accurate weighing techniques, whenever there is no time to look things up in the guide.

Proper weighing technique directly affects the success and repeat ability of your experiments. Luckily there are simple measures to ensure that your weighing results are always accurate.
