How to ensure accurate weighing results every day?

Routine Testing of Laboratory Balances

Routine Testing of Lab Balances. How to Do It Correctly

Routine balance testing ensures consistently accurate weighing results.

Routine testing of laboratory balances by the user is essential to uncover malfunctions early and eliminate inaccuracies that would otherwise go undetected until your next service calibration. More and more laboratories are realizing that it’s both less expensive and more efficient to build quality into laboratory results from the start, rather than discovering problems later on.

The 4 pillars of routine balance testing

Take a look at the short guide which explains the four pillars of successful balance testing:

  • Testing frequency
  • Test methods and SOPs
  • Test weights
  • User training
The guide provides easy-to-follow material which outlines how often to test, how to test and which weights to use to ensure proper balance function. Furthermore, links to helpful tools and complementary information are provided.

Put routine balance testing into practice!

It pays off to build quality into laboratory results from the start, rather than discovering problems later on. Put routine balance testing into practice and ensure your weighing results are accurate each and every day.
