Luna LAB 254e Analytical Balance (250g Capacity)
The Luna LAB 254e Analytical Balance (250g Capacity) is a high-tech laboratory scale designed to measure small samples very accurately. It is sensitive to very slight changes of mass, has a max capacity of 250g and a readability of 0.0001g, making it ideal for weighing fine or light materials. It can also be used to measure moving subjects for dynamic weighing applications.
Please note that a calibration certificate for this device must be purchased at the same time by ticking the box at the top of the page. You cannot purchase this certificate for a balance or scale that has already been ordered.
What Are Analytical Balances?
Analytical balances are incredibly sensitive and are therefore able to detect very small increases in mass. As they tend to have lower capacities than top-loading balances, they are best used for measuring small samples very accurately.
Applications for the Luna LAB 254e Analytical Balance
Due to the sensitivity of the LAB Luna scale, it is a great choice for measuring light or fine samples, as well as moving subjects like liquids or small animals and insects. It is therefore suitable for a range of applications, including:
- Parts counting
- Percentage weighing
- Dynamic weighing (e.g. liquids, animals)
- Determining density
- Cumulative weighing
What Is the Capacity of the Luna LAB 254e Balance?
The capacity of the Luna LAB 254e Balance ranges from 0.01g - 250g, with a readability of 0.0001g. It is not designed for measuring large singular loads, however it does have a cumulative weighing function for improved versatility.
How Do I Calibrate the Luna LAB 254e Analytical Balance?
The Luna LAB 254e Balance requires external or manual calibration before use. To do this, you will need to place objects with a known weight on the balance and check that it returns the correct measurement.
Date and Time Printouts for Data Traceability
In adherence with Good Laboratory Practise (GLP) guidelines, data printouts supplied by the Luna LAB Balance are time and date stamped for improved traceability. This can help you keep track of your processes for a more functional, organised laboratory environment.
Highly Accessible Functionality
Colour-coded buttons and an icon-driven menu make this balance very easy to use, even if you haven't been trained to operate it. Due to its bright LCD display and 24mm high figures, results can be seen clearly, helping to minimise the risk of mistakes.
Due to their high sensitivity, analytical balances require a very stable set up to return more reliable results. To make this easy for you to achieve, the Luna LAB 254e comes with a level indicator and adjustable feet that allow you to quickly and effectively set the balance up before use.
What Security Features Does This Balance Have?
This balance comes a security slot that accommodates Kensington-type locks for theft prevention. It also features password protection which protects data from being accessed without authorisation and settings from being changed.
