Web Information

Key Features

  • Ultra fast response times with high repeatability when weighing the smallest of samples
  • Fully automatic calibration features isoCAL® and provides ISO/GLP documentation
  • Fourteen built-in applications feature a powerful statistics program offering reliable and fast evaluations
  • Comprehensive software package corrects for air buoyancy and sample density
  • Designed for highly accurate weighing of filters with sizes up to 90 mm
  • The generously-sized opening of the draft shield moves to any position desired

The MC5 will weigh up to 5g with 1 μg readability. Stable readings within an ultra fast 10 seconds, for maximum time savings with each weighing operation. Both the Sartorius SC2 and MC5 microbalances are the world’s first to feature the EUREKA® air buoyancy correction software, allowing true mass measurement and compensation for fluctuations in air density. Built-in software simplifies back-weighing, and enables fast, error-free storage of tare weights, initial sample weights and calculation of the amounts back-weighed in any order you choose for as many as 50 samples.

 Sartorius has been the manufacturer of some of the world’s finest balances since 1871 when they introduced the world’s first pharmaceutical balance. Sartorius’ excellent reputation and image in the technologically sophisticated field of weighing and balances make them a global leader.
