Weigh precious stones like diamonds 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.
When the Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures division tells you need a NTEP Class I balance that has a verification scale division of one milligram the AX224N 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.

The Adventurer AX224N has built in AutoCal enabling automatic internal calibration. 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.

Ohaus Adventurer AX analytical balance delivers weighing performance with stable and reliable weighing results for routine weighing tasks. The fast stabilization time improves productivity in the laboratory. External calibration allows the operator to manually calibrate the balance with a choice of calibration weight values to ensure accuracy. External calibration does require you to purchase the optional calibration weight.
Space-saving draftshield improves user experience and accessibility. The two piece, top-mounted draftshield doors open wide on both sides, providing ample room for sample placement, and also reduce the footprint of the draftshield in the rear of the balance when open.
Wide door entry provides unobstructed access and allows larger weighing vessels to be easily placed on the pan, reducing the chance of accidental spillage
On the rear of the balance you'll find a built-in RS-232 port to connect either to a computer with a standard (straight-through) serial cable or Ohaus SF40A impact printer. There is also a USB port on the rear of scale to connect to PC only. Note the front USB is used to connect a USB flash driver only.
The bottom side of the Ohaus Adventurer has 4 adjustable leveling feet. The black removable protective cover is the weigh below underhook opening. Shown below is a close-up of the cover removed.
The Adventurer balance is equipped with a weigh below hook for weighing below the balance. Before turning the balance over, remove the pan and draft shield elements to prevent damage. To use this feature, remove power from the balance, then remove the protective cover for the weigh below opening. The balance can be supported using lab jacks or any other convenient method. Ensure the balance is level and secure. Power on the balance, then use a string or wire to attach items to be weighed. Below weighing is used for weighing magnetic materials, large samples that won't fix on the weighing platform or extremely hot or cold sample that would effect the balance's electronics if placed directly on the weighing platform due to thermal heat/cold transfer. Additional applications would be specific gravity determination.
The front USB is used to connect a USB flash driver only. The weighing data can be saved to USB every day. The density determination and check weighing applications can not be saved to the USB.
Setting up multiple balances is simple by exporting the profile from a master balance via a USB drive. The data maintenance tool allows you to save user and application settings to a USB, which can be easily transferred to other Adventurer balances. The data can then be used to configure additional Adventurer balances with the data imported from original balance. Two types of data can be exported Application settings (APW, Ref. weight and etc.) and Menu settings (balance setup function and etc.)
The wide viewing angle color touchscreen provides quick graphical access to all of Adventurer's applications. Touch-sensitive display with touch areas and buttons to control the function of the Ohaus Adventurer AX.
