Shimadzu - Analytical Balance - AP Series

Thanks to the built-in UniBloc AP integrated aluminum mass sensor and an optimized control system, this balance achieves high-speed measurements with a response as quick as 2 seconds. Featuring an easyto-read organic EL display, it has been redesigned for excellent operability. The AP-W series is equipped with a function to automatically calculate the weight values required for sample concentration preparation, which supports routine weighing operations.

*The response time for displaying 90% of added sample amount value in trace measurements (from 1mg)

**Non-condensing

Key features

  • High Speed
  • Stress free as when AP Holder and STABLO-AP Ionizer are used together, influence of static charge is eliminated, resulting in reliable weighing results in a shorter time
  • Integrated Report Creation Function Combines Analysis Results from HPLC and Weighing Results from Balance
  • Specific Gravimetric function
  • Incorporates Shimadzu’s most advanced Unibloc integrated mass sensor
  • Integrated Management of Analytical Data on Network System Using LabSolutions Balance measurement data management system (enables compliance with a variety of regulations for measurement data integrity,including ISO 17025 and ISO 9001)
  • Compliant with the latest data integrity guidance
  • High Security User Management
  • Multi-stand can be used freely and easily for 0.01 mg model only, equipped as standard
  • USB Host (AP Series only)
  • USB and RS-232-C included as standard
  • Numeric Keypad
  • Automatic Calibration with two internal weights provided as standard

*1 Minimum display 0.01mg models provide two internal weights as standard

*2 Be compliant with USP Chapter 41. This is the tested value by the weight of the balance’s capacity of 5% (or 5 grams’ weight). In the case of the AP225W, the results are for tests carried out with the optional internal windbreak plate applied. The minimum weight value is affected by the installation environment, so it is necessary to measure it in the actual environment of use
