GF-300P Prescription Balance offers the same reliability as the GF-300 laboratory balance with additional embedded software conforming to US National Conference on Weighing & Measurement requirements for Class II balances - certified for both Weighing and Pill Counting for prescription filling. A&D offers an extensive line of pharmacy weighing solutions which comply with most Federal, State and local USP Regulations.
GF-300P Pharmacy Scale can increase pharmacy efficiency and patient safety in the smallest to the largest pharmacies - assisting with processing prescriptions by counting, weighing or compounding. Pharmacy employees can process compounds efficiently and accurately by enabling the pharmacist to quickly re-zero after the addition of each ingredient in a compound. A digital pharmacy scale virtually ensures that the pharmacist adds the correct amount of each item.
The corner pharmacy knows they cannot be all things for all people and typically don't have the expertise or capital to go head-to-head with the giant retailers who excel in large scale merchandising and managing. To stay competitive and to differentiate from the big store pharmacy chains many independent pharmacies focus on the art and science of compounding. Specialty compounding prescriptions allow people to work with their doctors to devise ways to make taking medicine less of a problem.
The following 2 models of prescription counting scales offer varying weighing capability and readability uniquely designed to cover a broad range of pill counting uses.
GF-200P 210g x 0.001g (NTEP Class II e=0.01g d=0.001g)
GF-300P 310g x 0.001g (NTEP Class II e=0.01g d=0.001g)
minimum unit mass for Counting mode is 3e
For those pharmacist wanting an all glass 3 door glass draft shield, while the A&D GF300P has the all plastic draftshield (you can purchase the optional GX-10 glass breeze break but that is an additional $265). The plastic draft shield is only 3.6" high from the weighing platform to the top of the removable cover, and yes the A&D can only be entered from lifting off the top. When you purchase the optional GX10 you get greater draft shield height and you can enter from the two sides or top.
The A&D GF300P is a popular digital balance for the pharmacy compounder, backed with a 5 year manufacturer warranty. Review the manufacturer warranty from other manufacturer's and you'll see their warranty is a lot less. Plus if you ever need repair A&D Weighing has two facilities in the USA located in Georgia and California for fast turn around.

In the video above we show the difference between the A&D FX-300iN which is NTEP Approved and Legal for Trade and the A&D FX-300i which is NON-NTEP (you don't want to buy the FX-300i). If you are a pharmacists needing to meet the requirements for maintaining your pharmacy license the A&D FX-300iN complies for making weight measurements on a Class II prescription balance. Pharmacies are required by law in many states to have pharmacy prescription scale in their facility even if they are not compounding. The FX300iN meets definition of a Class "A" prescription scale meeting the weighing sensitivity requirement of 6 milligram or 0.01 grains. Oregon marijuana dispensary are required to have in their retail stores a legal for trade scale with a verification scale division of "e"=0.01g and again the FX-300iN meets these regulations.
Learn more about the AND FX-700CT as we demonstrate the balance and show you all the features this precision milligram weighing instrument offers. Basically the FX-700CT (152g x 0.001g) is the same balance as the HR-150a (152g x 0.0001g) but the FX-700CT displays 1/10 the resolution. If you want to learn more about the HR-a Series this video is well worth watching.
Before you make your final decision for purchasing your next milligram balance be sure to see the Sartorius Entris Series. Take your pick either motorized internal calibration with the Sartorius Entris323i-1S, 423i-1S or 623i-1S milligram balances.

The Sartorius Entris 3 decimal place balances offer a circular draftshield that you load from the top. See the quick settling time as we place calibration weights on the weighing platform.
