Sartorius just added the Quintix6102-1S to the Quintix series in Feb. 2014. Sartorius Quintix 6102-1S laboratory balance offers a huge 6100 grams weighing capacity with readability to 0.01 grams. This lab balance features a huge 7.0 inch round weighing platform with fully automatic, temperature and time controlled internal calibration. The die-cast base housing ensures stable and repeatable weighing. The housing has a chemically resistant finish for the easiest cleaning ever.
Sartorius begin building balances in 1871 and holds the Guinness Book of World Record for the most accurate balance in the world. When people call us demanding absolute weighing accuracy we tell them Sartorius is the only choice.
Sartorius' unique monolithic weight sensor produces steady readings using since it is cut from a single block of a special, highly rugged aluminum alloy using high-speed 21st century milling technology. The design in the area of the pan linkage is highly resistant to mechanical stress and therefore has exceptionally high mechanical stability. Also since the monolithic weigh cell is cut from a single block of aluminum there are no screw fasteners needed between functional parts. This keeps the system less sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, and with fewer parts there is less chance of failure. You achieve incredibly fast response time, unfailing reliability and near-zero susceptibility to interference. The reasons for these considerable advantages are two fold: the number of individual parts has been reduced by more than 70% and the mechanical construction has been designed to last for years of trouble-free operations.
Sartorius Quintix sets new benchmarks in every aspect for standard lab balances: features, technology, ergonomic style, and, above all, the entirely new, user-friendly operating design of the Quintix that helps make work flows much more efficient. What it boils down to is the Quintix is fail-safe: it rules out weighing errors due to incorrect operation and eliminates the time-consuming chore of fine-tuning the settings. Fractions of a second are all it takes for any user to adapt the Quintix to specific requirements and obtain traceable results much faster than ever.
Sartorius teamed up with experienced lab users to develop the user interface of the new Quintix. Lab users' number 1 priority was to ensure easy, intuitive operation without having read the manual first. They did it! The self-explanatory icons and plain-text prompts on the large touch screen show you all the information you need to know for the procedure – no more, no less.
For example, the touch-activated print key will appear only when Quintix has detected that a Sartorius printer is connected. The Quintix also excels in compliance with workplace safety requirements: Even if you are wearing several pairs of lab gloves, you can still correctly use all the functions of the balance.
Quintix comes standard with convenient, built-in applications. These, along with the extensive accessories Sartorius offers, enable you to customize Quintix to a variety of weight measurement tasks. Determine the specific gravity with the built-in density application and the below balance weighing hook located on the bottom of the balance.
Simply integrated - application software
The Quintix® balances come standard with a variety of application programs built in, helping to simplify routine tasks:
Toggling between weight units
Mixing enables you to weigh in various components of a formula quickly with 100% traceability.
Components conveniently lets you weigh components of a formula into separate containers and retrieve the total amount weighed-in at any time.
Statistics saves you work when you need to know the standard deviation and other statistics on an entire group of different samples, but don't have the time to do the number-crunching yourself.
Conversion takes care of the math when you need to convert a weight using a factor, say, to calculate the weight per unit area.
Most precision weighing applications the Sartorius Quintix 6102-1S has the features you need, but if you are not sure call the experts at Precision Weighing Balances to review your weighing application. If you are a pharmaceutical manufacturer and work in regulated environment and require minimum sample weight pertaining to measurement uncertainty the Quintx does not have this feature but we offer the Secura and Cubis MSA6202S to comply with most United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) weighing requirements.

In the YouTube video above we discuss calibration and the steps to perform internal calibration and also external calibration. For the demonstration we are using the Quintix1102-1S and the procedure is the same for all the Sartorius Quintix Series. Calibrating the Sartorius Quintix Balance is simple and easy and this laboratory balance displays the calibration deviation and the adjusted deviation calibration to meet numerous quality assurance requires. External calibration does require the purchase of the external calibration weight specific to each Quintix model and we offer a huge selection at calibrationweight.com
In the YouTube video above we cover the "Weighing" mode and the different configurations choices. Learn more about the "zero" & "tare" icon on the touchscreen display. We'll show you how simple it is to change the weight unit (g > oz > dwt > lb etc) and how you can drop the last significant digit to increase even faster stable weighing results. Although the laboratory balance we use for this demonstration is the Sartorius Secura225D-1S semi microbalance the weighing functionality is the same for all the Practum, Quintix and Secura models.
In the YouTube video above we cover the "Statistics" mode and the different configurations choices. Statistics is available on all models in the Quintix and Secura Series but NOT available on the Practum balances
Repeatable results and linearity are the key prerequisites to obtaining accurate and traceable weighing results. That's why Quintix has been subjected to extensive automated repeatability, linearity and temperature drift tests to guarantee that it meets our high metrological specifications. Inside a virtual "rigorous testing chamber", Quintix test samples undergo more than 1,000,000 load stress tests to ensure that after years of standing up to the rigors of daily use with different weight loads, it will still deliver accurate results just like it did on day one.
Quintix is crafted in Germany with high-grade components and materials. For example, the weigh cells are mounted on a solid, special aluminum alloy base plate, which is extremely impervious to ambient conditions, such as temperature fluctuations and vibration.
All these tests and features add up to user benefits like the legendary reliability of the Sartorius Quintix, a major advantage it shares with every other Sartorius balance.
Peace of Mind with isoCAL
Temperature fluctuations have an influence on the accuracy of your weighing results
This is why every Quintix comes equipped with the internal adjustment function isoCAL that ensures consistently accurate results.
Each time isoCAL is performed, the Cal Audit Trail function in Quintix records all data on this procedure so it can be traced for your quality assurance.
Transfer weighing results to your pc
Every advanced analytical laboratory requires GLP- | GMP compliant records, as well as fast and secure processing of the data generated. The Plug and Work technology in Quintix saves you considerable time and effort in generating fast and reliable documents.
Quintix substantially simplifies processing data in spreadsheets. How? After connecting the USB port on Quintix to a computer, just open the Microsoft Office program you need. Quintix delivers data in your choice of format, either text or numbers, enabling effortless and accurate spreadsheet calculations. No additional software or special configuration settings are needed.
The Sartorius standard printer YDP40 is automatically detected by Quintix. Thanks to interactive user guidance, Quintix provides help in generating error-free printouts, for instance, by inputting the correct sample ID numbers.
