Products calibration balance Mettler Toledo weight instrument XPR105MCP

The XPR105MCP calibration balance from Mettler Toledo is said to be the high-speed solution for ISO 8655-compliant calibration of multichannel pipettes.

The instrument has a readability of 10 μg and supports multichannel pipettes with up to 12 channels and nominal volumes from 0.5 to 1000 μL.

With a readability of 10 μg and repeatability of 15 μg, the system fulfills the requirements of ISO 8655 for multichannel pipettes with dispensing volumes as small as 0.5 μL.

The weighing performance ensures accurate calibration, the company says, even at such small volumes.

The results of a single dispense of up to 12 channels are calculated in under one minute.

The unit tests each pipette channel individually on the same load cell to ensure equal measurement performance. The load cell is protected from any spills to ensure lifelong performance.

The 360 measurements needed for a full calibration (12 channels, 3×10 repetitions) can be completed in as little as 25 minutes.

The system can also be connected to a second calibration balance for increased throughput.
