Analytical balances are high precision weighing machines with up to 0.1mg readabilities. They are commonly regarded as a mid-range laboratory balance sorted by readability, starting with precision balances (0.1mg) and moving up to analytical balances (0.01mg), semi-microbalances (0.001mg) and microbalances (0.0001mg).
An analytical balance is used for advanced scientific weighing and are commonly found in research and development facilities, medical institutions and science laboratories. Analytical balances include a wide range of features including accumulation, dynamic weighing and density determination for accurately weighing chemicals, compounds and liquids in tiny increments.

Q: What is the difference between an analytical balance and precision balance
Analytical balances usually have a higher degree of precision (up to 0.0001g) than precision balance models (0.001g), as a result, analytical balances are typically more expensive and can complete with protective draft shields in order to protect the weighing chamber from vibrations and outside fluctuations.
When using an analytical balance, it is recommended that users work on an anti-vibration table for the most accurate results.
Q: What are the parts of an analytical balance?
Modern analytical balances comprise of a weighing pan, front-level indicator, draft shield, connectivity ports as well as the keypad and display as standard. Most types of analytical balance can be customised with below balance weighing hooks and other hardware for performing chemical analysis and more complex weighing tasks.
In the case of Adam scales, weighing applications such as dynamic weighing and density determination can be accessed through the keypad menu.
