When the Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures division tells you need a NTEP Class II balance that has a verification scale division of 0.01 gram the AX523N/E meets the requirement. You can learn more about verification division (e) and displayed division (d) by downloading NIST Handbook 44 - 2014 Edition here and review Section 2.
Application for the AX523N/E could be for general purpose weighing, retail jewelry/precious metal weighing, prescription weighing, prescription counting, weighing of grain in commercial and UDSA/GIPSA applications.
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.
We understand purchasing a legal for trade balance is a major capital expense and if you have any questions give us a call and one of our weighing experts can discuss your weighing application and get you the most affordable balance for your weighing needs. You can also read more about what is a legal for trade here.
When the Adventurer AX523N/E is first installed, or is moved to another location, the milligram scale must be calibrated to ensure accurate weighing results. The Ohaus AX523N/E requires the purchase of a optional external 500 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.
If you don't need Legal for Trade we offer the Ohaus AX523N/E which is basically the same balance without the Legal for Trade Approval. See the entire line of Adventurer Pro Precision Balances that offers 34 different models HERE.
For a limited time we are offering Free shipping UPS Ground in the lower 48 states on all Ohaus Adventurer AX laboratory balances.

Are you going to be performing density determination of samples? You'll need to purchase the OPTIONAL Ohaus Density Determination Kit. See how to install and use the Ohaus Density Determination Kit. This YouTube video shows the density kit with the Ohaus Adventurer Analytical Balances. You'll see exactly what comes with the kit.
In the YouTube Video above get a general introduction of the Ohaus Adventurer AX Laboratory Balance.
Is the Adventurer AX523N/E is out of your budget? How about saving $100's but you will only have 320 grams weighing capacity with FX-300iN? Plus FX-iN Series has a small 7.6 x 10.3 inch footprint design saves you space and backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus AX523N/E is only 2 years.
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to buying the FX-i NTEP digital balances and hopefully the video above will clear those issues up do you don't purchase the wrong balance.
Is the Ohaus Adventurer AX523N/E too pricey for your budget and you DO NOT need a Legal for Trade balance? If you are using a weighing device for commercial transactions (money changes hands based on a scale's reading) you will be required to have a Legal for Trade NTEP approved balance. This regulation is meant to protect the consumer so they are getting what they paid for when goods are bought and sold by weight. We recommend you contact your Weights & Measures Inspector for the city that the scale will be used in for the exact requirement. You can learn more here.
Then check out either the Sartorius ENTRIS 623i-1S with Internal Calibration or Sartorius ENTRIS 623-1S (external cal only). The YouTube video above we demonstrate the Entris423-1S but is is similar to the Entris623-1S. The Sartorius Entris are made in Germany while the AX523N/E is made in China. Please note the Entris milligram balances have a round circular draftshield but if you do want the 3 door draftshield similar to the Ohaus Adventurer AX523N/E we offer the Sartorius Practum513-1S, Sartorius Quintix513-1S and Sartorius Secura513-1S. The Sartorius Practum, Quintix and Secura all that a very nice color touchscreen display.
Configuring the Sartorius Entris Series is extremely easy. We like the positive click tactile keypad over balances with touchscreen displays. Touchscreens can be affected by moist fingers or gloves while tactile keypads are not affected.
Are you using a milligram balance in a wet or dusty environment? The Ohaus Adventurer is not designed for these hostile environment but there the AND Weighing FZ-iWP Series waterproof milligram balances. AND Weighing developed the world's first IP-65 rated 1 milligram resolution balance. It is dust-tight and can even be sprayed with water. Think of it as an "accident-proof" balance suitable for use in environments that can render other balances inoperable.
Select from 3 models with motorized internal calibration AND FX300iWP (320g x 1mg), AND FX200iWP (220g x 1mg), AND FX120iWP (120g x 1mg) or save some money choosing from 3 models with external calibration AND FZ120iWP (120g x 1mg), AND FZ200iWP (220g x 1mg), AND FZ300iWP (320g x 1mg).
