Quick Access to
Calibration and
Adjustment
You will need to perform the combined calibration
and adjustment procedure the first time you operate
the balance, each time after changing it to a different
location and at regular intervals during operation.
If you are using a Practum® series balance, you will
have to do this manually as described below. The
Secura® and Quintix® series perform this procedure
fully automatically.
Access the adjustment
function by touching
“CAL”.
For external
adjustment, touch
“CAL-Extern”.
Set the balance to zero
by touching A and
then w. Place the
displayed calibration
weight in the middle
of the weighing pan.
The balance adjusts
itself automatically and
then switches to the
operation mode.

Quick Six-Step Guide to Applications
Counting
Familiarize yourself with the capabilities
of your Sartorius balance and start off by
counting identical parts. The balance will show
you the quantity and the total weight.
1
2
*
Touch the menu key to access the
selection mode for applications and
select “Counting”.
Mixing**
Say you have a formula and need to weigh
in various components quickly with 100%
traceability, without losing track of the total
weight.
Use the “Mixing” application.
1
Place the empty collection container on
the balance and tare it with D.
2
*
Place the empty container on the balance
and tare the container weight with D.
Touch the menu key to access the selection
mode for applications and select “Mixing”.
Components**
Do you need to compound components
according to a formula, but don’t want to
mix them immediately? With the application
“Components” you can weigh the individual
components in different containers and query
the total weight at any time.

** Available in Quintix® and Secura®
Touch the menu key to access the
selection mode for applications and
select “Components”.
Place the first empty container on the
balance and tare it with D. Then weigh-in
component 1 and save the value in the
memory by touching v.
3
4
Put the reference number of pieces
(the default is: 10 pcs) into the
container and press w.
3
5
The number of reference pieces put in is
displayed. Fill the entire quantity into the
container.
4
Fill the first component into the
container and save the component
by touching v.
3
The display of the balance shows the
piece count of the sample. Touch
“Qnt”, to view the total weight.
5
6
5
Now place a new container on the balance
and tare it with D. You can then fill in
component 2 and confirm with v.
The total weight of the sample is
displayed.
If required, you can fill in additional
components. Touch “Net1” to view the
total weight.
Fill the next component and save it by
touching v.
4
Remove the first sample from the balance
and the weight value will jump to a
negative value.
6
The total weight is displayed.
If required, you can fill in additional
components.
6
Repeat this procedure to weigh-in any
additional samples. To display the values
which have been added up touch “Net”.
The sum of all components which
have been saved will be displayed.
Statistics**
Would you like to save statistics on an entire
group of different samples?
Your Sartorius balance will transfer the
readings to its statistics memory and generate
a report on the key statistical parameters.

*
Touch the menu key to access the
selection mode for applications and
select “Statistics”.
Density
Do you want to determine the density of a
solid, irregularly-shaped object precisely?
Use the application “Density” and the
Sartorius density determination kit to precisely
calculate, for example, the quality of parts
made of precious metals and plastics.
Unstable Conditions
Do you have to weigh in an extremely unstable
environment or measure the weight of an
inquisitive little mouse that just won’t sit
still? With this application you can determine
the weight accurately and arrive at traceable
results.

2
Select whether the results should be printed
out after each weighing process and whether
the balance should be automatically tared
after saving the value and confirm your
selection by touching the checkmark.
*
First, install the Sartorius density kit on your
balance with the help of the instructions.
Touch the menu key and select “Density”.
1
Tare your balance. Touch the gray interface
to set the mean density and the accuracy of
the density measurement result.

5
Enter 15 measurements, for example,
and confirm this by touching the
checkmark.
Here you will see your results in the
form of a report.
Now place the material to be weighed in
the sample holder of the beaker with the
liquid and touch v.
Place the material to be weighed on the
upper pan of the density kit in order to
display the weight in air and press the
key v.
4
This number has been factory-set to five
measurements.
Other values can be entered by touching
the dots.

The balance displays the calculated
density of the solid object.

Place the sample on the balance and
press w to commence weighing in
an unstable environment.
The results of the averaging are
displayed.
Determination of the minimum sample quantity
according to USP, Setting up of the SQmin
function (only Secura®)
Sartorius can offer to set up the SQmin function for
your balance.
Sartorius Service will determine the permitted
minimum sample quantity on the basis of the
specifications of your quality assurance system and
will store this value in the balance. The configuration
of the SQmin function will be documented in a
certificate (“Balance Test According to USP”).
If you work with the SQmin function, the weight
value will be compared with the default minimum
sample quantity (SQmin = Sample Quantity
Minimum). In this way it is ensured that the
weighing results are above the default minimum
sample quantity.
Weighing results which are below the SQmin will
not be output via the printer or the computer,
depending upon the safety stage settings, and will
appear, clearly marked, in the display of the balance.
Using the SQmin function ensures that the weighing
results comply with the USP directives (USP = United
States Pharmacopeia).
