Lab scales shop
« on: 13/07/2013 18:36:53 »
Hello,
Has you ever order something from [a small laboratory scale provider]? or maybe can recommend some site with lab scales in Australia or stationary shop?
I need a lab scales for my business and I'd like to talk with some persons with knowledge in this field.. (especially which scales will be best for my business)

saw some cheap digital scales on Amazon recently ... https://www.google.com/search?q=amazon+scales+0.1g

whilst the resolution/readability is billed as 0.1g , I doubt the accuracy is that good.

Your choices will depend on the accuracy you need, how much you are using it, and perhaps whether it needs an independent certification.  Also what is the maximum weight you will be using.  A shipping scale and a reagent scale may be quite different.  As RD mentioned, there are many small battery powered scales available on E-Bay, Amazon, and other sources, many with fairly high listed accuracy.

The more accurate scales may also have an enclosure to prevent air currents from disrupting the measurement.
