Precision Scales for Pharmaceutical and Medical Use


Progress in the medicine and pharmaceutical industry is vital in improving health, increasing life expectancy and saving lives. One of the most crucial pieces of equipment being used in every pharmaceutical facility is the lab scale and analytical balance

Our cutting-edge pharmaceutical lab scales and analytical balances can be used in pharmacies for the accurate measuring and mixing of substances in the making of drugs and medicines. Every ingredient that is used in a pharmaceutical product must be precisely weighed so that the quality of the end product is not compromised and most importantly that it is safe for consumption. Contamination from interfering substances or inaccurate measurements can cause undesirable side effects or even death.

Precision Weighing for Vets

Veterinary uses

Precise analytical weighing is a vital practice for veterinarians and animal care professionals for a number of reasons. Determining the weight of an animal is important because it can determine the health of the animal. The measurement can be compared to a median for the species and to previous states. Furthermore, it can inform us of the amount of food, water, medication and exercise the animal must receive.

Precision weighing specifically is essential in the preparation of animal medication such as when weighing ingredients and compounding different substances. It is also used when preparing precise food portions, particularly for small animals and it is commonly used in the laboratory testing of animals. At Precisa, we specialise in balances measuring up to 0.1mg. Our scales are therefore most suited for the weighing of very small animals (such as insects and arachnids) and precise medicine and food preparation
