Guide to Balance Cleaning: 8 Simple Steps to a Clean Balance

A clean laboratory has a significant impact on both operator safety and cross-contamination risk. The same applies to laboratory balances.

A clean analytical balance or precision balance is the first step towards safe and accurate weighing. Cleaning increases user safety and reduces the risk of cross-contamination, and is the most important action to prolong instrument life.

Download the reference guide and get answers to the following frequently asked questions:

  • When should I clean my balance?
  • What material do I need and which cleaning agents should I use?

Ideally, laboratory SOPs dictate the schedule for balance cleaning. However, after weighing - especially when weighing potentially toxic substances - make sure the balance is thoroughly cleaned to prevent exposure risk for the next operator.

 

Cleaning can be fast and easy with an understanding of methods and cleaning. The icing on the cake is that you can do you lab weighing on a balance that is specifically designed for easy cleaning.

For this reason: When evaluating a new balance, keep an eye on gaps and shoulders in the design and check if the draft shield can be dismantled without tools. Better yet, determine if it can be removed in just a few steps and put in the dishwasher. This helps ensure easy clean-up when spills occur.
