Press Release: Taking Weighing to New Limits: XPR Micro and Ultra-micro Balances
Including a first-of-its-kind ultra-micro balance, the METTLER TOLEDO’s XPR line presents a welcome combination of usability and accuracy. This combination is critical in industries such as pharmaceuticals where sample sizes are small and productivity must be maintained.
Greifensee, Switzerland—December 2, 2018—Notable in this line is XPR6UD5, the first ultra-micro balance on the market. It offers a 0.5 microliter resolution and 25 percent better repeatability than traditional microbalances, allowing you to decrease sample sizes while maintaining accuracy. It can therefore reduce ongoing processing costs for companies where a further decrease in sample sizes can conserve rare or precious resources.
The winning blend of resolution, repeatability and range is created using innovations such as Active Thermoelectric Cooling (ATC). ATC draws heat that can disrupt balance stability away from the weighing mechanism. The addition of METTLER TOLEDO’s ongoing quality-assurance feature GWP Approved automatically checks tests, adjustments, leveling and settings prior to weighing to help eliminate errors.
Usability is delivered by a small bench print and new user interface that, similar to a smartphone, allows users to swipe for programming and running tasks. A built-in notepad simplifies documentation, while individual methods can be stored and accessed via icons, saving time and enhancing security. Tolerance profiles also ensure that weighing tasks meet defined process requirements and applicable regulations.
Additional XPR design benefits include a new weighing pan for easier cleaning, USB data-transfer for quick export of task parameters or results, and a two-screen system that allows the main touchscreen to be placed wherever it is most ergonomic and convenient.
Taken together, XPR’s productivity-enhancing features and repeatable micro-range weighing allows it to create a new level of productivity.
