Tight Benchspace

Tight Benchspace

Lab space comes at a premium, and often there are multiple people working on a very small bench space. Equipment that can save on space, like the Gemini GR Analytical Balance and the Newton EJ Portable Balance, is valuable to students and staff alike.


Varying Skill Sets of Users

Different Skill Sets of Users

In your lab, there could be Chemistry, Pharmacology, Biology, and other types of students using the same equipment as tenured staff doing research. Having equipment that is adaptable – and usable by all – is key.  This includes density kits, animal weighing kits, and more.

Data Integrity is Critical

Data Integrity is Critical

A&D believes that the results you get are “More Than a Measurement”.  In other words, the weights that come from balances are used in other calculations and must be accurate because they inform the rest of your processes.  Additionally, The ability to send these measurements to a PC or integrate easily into with equipment or a printer helps ensure accurate results. We’ve even included lock-out specs so that lab students and assistants can’t change settings.

Budget Friendly

Budget Friendly

Many in Academia work on grants or a shoe-string budget.  To help maximize value and get the most out of each purchase, A&D Weighing offers many products with metal top and bottom housing to ensure a reliable and durable product.  In addition, our selection of IP65 balances are spill proof for students who are just learning their way around the lab, or for labs that deal with wet and dusty materials.


Once you’ve selected the right weighing equipment that is robust and accurate to satisfy your application’s challenging environment, you want to make sure that it also integrates easily with your workflows.
