New York, NY (PressExposure) November 23, 2009 -- METTLER TOLEDO, the leading global supplier of precision instruments and services, presents its new XP105 analytical balance, an addition to the company's extensive line of XP balances. Offering a safe and accurate solution for quantifying the purity of sugar in a laboratory environment, the XP105 balance reduces the risk of errors, increases efficiency and is easy to use. It is complemented by the LabX balance PC software, which is easily configured to guide operators through weighing processes.
In a laboratory environment, the safety aspect is crucial as it usually involves the presence of sulfuric acid, which is caustic. The laboratory equipment must therefore be robust and easy to operate while wearing gloves. In addition, differential weighing processes must be easy-to-follow and automatic sample identification is a prerequisite to avoid mistakes such as sample mix-up.
The ideal choice for such an application is the XP105 Balance with 100 gram capacity and a readability of 0.01 mg.
The XP105 Balance comes with SmartSens, a feature that enables users to perform weighing operations without touching the balance, a particularly important feature for those who wear gloves during the weighing process. This balance also presents the operator with clear instructions on the touch screen of the balance, thus reducing the risk of errors and increasing efficiency by guiding the operator through the weighing process, including the verification of sample IDs.
Easily integrated with the XP105 Balance, the PC LabX balance software can be configured to guide users through processes described in the operator's SOP using customizable dialogue displayed on the balance's color touch screen. This remote feature plus traceable documentation can significantly optimize the efficiency of laboratory processes.
