Weigh semi-precious stones or pharmacy compounding applications. Many states require pharmacies that are compounding specialty drugs to only weigh on a legal for trade balance. Balance requirements vary from state to state. The requirements are dictated with each state's pharmacy law and regulations. Determining the requirements involves perusing each state's pharmacy law and regulations to determine the requirements. Precision Weighing Balances suggests contacting the agency that authorizes your pharmacy license for approval of this balance prior to making the purchase. Although this balances is approved on a national level as a pharmacy balance, state and local agency may supersede with their own regulations. It is the purchaser's responsible to verify using the above balance is in compliance with your pharmacy license requirements

When the Adventurer AX423N/E is first installed, or is moved to another location, the milligram scale must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus AX423N/E requires the purchase of a optional external 400 gram calibration mass
to perform calibration. We always recommend that you purchase the calibration weight when you purchase the balance. You can learn more about calibration weights, class weights and the tolerances at calibrationweight.com
The Adventurer has a level bubble in a small round window beside the display. To level the balance, adjust the 4 leveling feet until the bubble is centered in the circle. The Ohaus Adventurer AX even has a level assist function where the display shows examples of images and which feet to adjust depending on the location of the level bubble until the bubble is centered. All NTEP Approved precision weighing balances must have a level bubble and adjustable feet since your balance must be leveled each time its moved to insure accurate weighing results.
The display features include a weighing capacity bar guide that will show the current weight as a percentage of balance capacity. A real-time clock function keeps accurate time even during power loss and the GLP data capability has the ability to record Sample name, Project names and Balance ID's to help meet traceability and compliance requirements.
Additional attributes include RS232 interface, integral weigh below hook, full housing in-use cover, removable stainless steel pan, die-cast metal bottom housing, security bracket, illuminated up-front level indicator, four adjustable feet, software lockout menus, stability indicator, software overload/underload indicators, user selectable environmental settings, audible indicator, user selectable brightness settings, auto dim, touchscreen calibration, auto tare, user selectable operating language.
