GF1200N NTEP Class II Scale offers the same reliability as the GF-1200 digital balance with additional embedded software conforming to US National Conference on Weighing & Measurement requirements for Class II balances. A&D offers an extensive line of pharmacy weighing solutions which comply with most Federal, State and local USP Regulations. The A&D GF1200N can be calibrated externally only and requires the purchase of an 1 kg calibration mass.
The GF-P 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 6 models of prescription counting scales offer varying weighing capability and readability uniquely designed to cover a broad range of pill counting uses.
If you need an NTEP Approved Class II balance and the GF1200N is too costly for your pocketbook we recommend you take a look at the AND FX-1200i precision balance.
If you need greater weighing capacity while still meeting NTEP requirements then review the additional FXi-N NTEP digital scales (FX-2000iN or FX-3000iN).

If the GF1200N is too expensive we offer the FX-1200iN.
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to buying the FX-i NTEP digital balances and hopefully this video will clear those issues up do you don't purchase the wrong balance.
All the model numbers ended with the letter "N" which designate NTEP Approved or Legal for Trade for the AND FX-i Series. Many people really don't see any difference between the FX-1200iN and the FX-1200i, but there is. If you require a legal for trade weighing device especially for commercial weighing and you ordered the non-NTEP version you will have problems. As you can guess the FX-iN NTEP Approved models costs more than the FX-i Non-NTEP models.
So here are the differences. You receive the manual with a 1 page addendum explaining how to calibrate the balance along with a "sealing plate" and two(2) "sealing screws" and labeling above the display. The verification scale division for the FX1200iN is "e"=0.1g just like the GF-1200N
Can you work with less weighing capacity? How about 600 gams? The A&D Weighing EK610J electronic digital scale has 600 grams weighing capacity with 0.01 grams readability. The scale features a 4.3 inches diameter stainless steel platform that is removable for easy cleaning. The large 7 segment LCD display with backlit allows for easy viewing is even low lighting conditions. If you look at the scale's display you will notice 5 diagonal line printed on the screen. Since "e" and "d" are not the same value the last digit of the display is boxed as per Legal for trade requirements. The "boxed markings" can not be removed and does slightly obscure your ability to read the last decimal.
You have a five (5) button tactile keypad with positive click so you really know the key was pressed. If you have shopped around for a new scale you might notice many now have touchscreens. Problem with touchscreens is they don't always work well if you have gloves on or your fingers are wet. Tactile keypads don't have any working issues. If you open the manual on page 3 each key function is explained and the instruction manual is clearly written and easy to understand unlike those scales made in China, Switzerland or even Germany that are very hard to understand and follow
