Mettler-Toledo’s XP56 microbalance tackles a typical problem of development and quality-control labs: With its minimum sample size and simple sample transfer procedure directly to a large tare container, the balance considerably reduces the use of expensive control substances. The XP56 has a weighing capacity of up to 52 gram with a readability of 1 μg. Thanks to innovations such as ErgoClips for pistons and the MinWeigh door — a special draft shield door for very small samples — samples can be dispensed directly into larger tare containers. The weighing performance of the XP56 makes it possible to weigh samples in the 2 to 8 milligram range, while also fulfilling the minimum weight criteria according to the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).
