Proper Cleaning And Maintenance Of A Laboratory Balance


Keeping a balance cleaned and maintained can dramatically increase the life of your balance and the quality of your weighing results.

This is the subject of an article by Michelle Sheridan, Weighing Specialist, Sartorius Corporation, for Laboratory Network.

“Quality-relevant work steps, such as the measuring process itself, but also cleaning, calibration and maintenance, should be described in your Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Following your SOPs can mean that you will have consistent and precise weighing results at all times. Sartorius balances can meet your requirements for laboratory and production areas, and allow for easy and simple cleaning. Care of the balance’s cleanliness reduces disturbances during the weighing process.”
