Lab balances are expensive investments for labs purchasing them. But with so many options available, it can be difficult to pick the instrument that best suits your needs. In this post, we’ll look at the deciding factors that can help you choose which weighing device to buy for your lab.
Some lab balances, usually analytical or semi-micro models, feature a statistics function. But what does that mean? How can you use that data? Is it worth buying a balance with that feature? In this post, we’ll explain statistics as they relate to lab balances.
You love your lab balance – you’ve had it for years and you’ve come to rely on it to the point where it almost feels like an extension of your own hand. But how long is too long to use the same balance? How do you know when it’s time to replace it?

Managing data is vital in the lab industry. Improperly collected and stored data can be lost before analysis, recorded incorrectly, prevent work from being verified, or even impede the research and processes that need the data to advance. Good record keeping can help users track errors or refine an experiment. Records can be used to audit a lab or to check the data’s integrity. When using a lab balance, there are a few ways to collect and record data, which we’ll outline in this post. If you’re looking for information on data communication, you can read this blog post.
