Re: Calibrating weight scale in a laboratory.
In Reply to Parent Post by momatwork
As a part of preparing in-house media in microbiology lab we use a weight scale. It is calibrated but we need to buy a balance to chek it every day. Is one calibratated balance enough? We use it for weighing 0.30 grams to 55 grams.
Welcome to the Cove!
I'm a little confused by some of your wording. When you say:
It is calibrated but we need to buy a balance to check it every day.
Do you mean weights
instead of balance
Tom's right, you can buy a set of weights to cover your range. I would get a set up to 100 grams. That way, you always have choices. If you just get one weight, and it gives you suspect readings, you are not sure if it's the balance or the weight. Sometimes weights get junk and all on them and get off a bit.
Now, 75 years later in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones, iPods and minds like empty rooms, I still plod along with books. ”
