Sartorius Secura124-1S is a analytical laboratory balance that does far more than set new standards in metrological specifications. Beyond its technical specs of 120 grams weighing capacity with readability to 0.1mg, fully automatic, temperature and time controlled internal calibration, 3.5 inch round weighing platform, 3 door removable draftshield glass chamber providing 8.2 inches height from pan to top of glass door.

Secura also gives you the security and serenity of knowing that you have done everything right according to best practices to ensure the quality of your measurement results, compliance with regulatory requirements and your efficiency as well. Secura makes it easier to comply with many quality assurance directives for reliable weighing in regulated environments such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology research weighing applications processes.

The new Sartorius Secura 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 Secura that helps make work flows much more efficient. What it boils down to is the Secura 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 Secura to specific requirements and obtain traceable results much faster than ever.

Secura comes standard with convenient, built-in applications. These, along with the extensive accessories Sartorius offers, enable you to customize Secura to a variety of weight measurement tasks. Determine the specific gravity with the built-in density application when purchased with the optional Sartorius YDK03 density kit, you can effortlessly determine the density of solids and liquids.

Simply integrated - application software
The Secura balances come standard with a variety of application programs built in, helping to simplify routine tasks:

  • Toggling between weight units
  • Density
  • Percent weighing
  • Checkweighing
  • Peak hold
  • Parts counting
  • Unstable conditions such as animal weigh mode
  • 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.
The Sartorius Secura 124-1S even has a port for a below balance weighing hook located on the bottom of the balance. You can learn more about below weighing applications here.

Sartorius teamed up with experienced lab users to develop the user interface of the new Secura. 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 Secura has detected that a Sartorius printer is connected. The Secura 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.

The Secura 124-1S is targeted for pharmaceutical manufacturing and research or any weighing environment with strict regulatory procedures. If your weighing application doesn't involve working in a regulated environment then you might want to review either the Sartorius Quintix 124-1S or Practum 124-1S. Not sure what you need? Call the experts at Precision Weighing Balances to review your weighing application.

See the entire Secura series of analytical balances offering 2 models with weighing capacity from 120g - 220g here.

Reliable Weighing Easier Than Ever Before

Sartorius Secura is a laboratory balance that does far more than set new standards in metrological specifications. Beyond its technical specs, Secura also gives you the security and serenity of knowing that you have done everything right according to best practices to ensure the quality of your measurement results, compliance with regulatory requirements and your efficiency as well.

First, the new operating concept of Secura will noticeably ease your daily workload during weighing and, second, its APC function - Advanced Pharma Compliance - will relieve you from tedious and time-consuming documentation and monitoring tasks.

These two benefits, in combination with legendary Sartorius quality, make reliable weighing in regulated areas easier than ever before.
APC functions (Advanced Pharma Compliance)
  • Monitoring of compliance with the USP minimum sample weight limits
  • Password protection of setup settings
  • Fully automatic temperature- and time-controlled internal adjustment - isoCAL
  • Temporary blockage of data transfer to printer or computer when uncertain weighing results are detected, such as when the result is below the USP minimum sample weight limit, the balance is not levelled or isoCAL adjustment needs to be performed
  • Storage of all data of adjustment procedures - Cal Audit Trail

Always Correctly Leveled with Sartorius Level Control
level lab balance
Secura has an optoelectronic sensor that continuously checks to see if the balance is perfectly level. If it detects any out of tolerances, you will be immediately alerted to this pending risk and see specific guidance prompts to help you level the balance. Output of the weighing data over the interface port will be temporarily interrupted until the balance has been correctly leveled again.

This means you can rest assured knowing that only correct data is transmitted. During leveling, you will not have to change your seated position. More importantly, when working with toxic substances under a laboratory fume hood, you will not have to lean over the balance while leveling it. As a result, Secura rules out the risk of health hazards.

Regulatory Compliance with Expert Support
Compliance weighing for the laboratoryDo you use your Secura balance or other lab instruments in a regulated area and have to comply with a multitude of requirements, regulations and directives? Relax. Sartorius Lab Products & Services can provide you at an additional cost with the appropriate expert services specifically tailored to ensure compliance with the strict requirements of the pharmaceutical industry - and not just for balances.

Risk Minimization - IQ | OQ Documentation. Do you need qualification documents as proof of suitability to be able to use your Secura in a regulated area? Sartorius Lab Products & Services at an additional cost will support you by providing trained specialists on site. They can generate the documents you need according to risk based test plans and test reports for installation and operational qualification. Contact Sartorius directly for the cost of these additional services.

Stress-Free USP Minimum Sample Weight Measurement
Compliance with the USP minimum sample weight requirements with absolute process reliability? No problem for the Sartorius Secura.

The display clearly indicates when the minimum sample weight is below the required minimum limit. In addition, the balance will temporarily block data transfer to a printer or a device connected to its interface port. This gives you peace of mind knowing that inadequate data cannot be inadvertently processed further.

Sartorius specially trained service staff can determine the minimum sample weight for you right at the balance's site of installation, program it into your Secura and attach a corresponding verification seal to the balance at an additional cost.

Best Results - Quality Documentation Made Easy
Balance calibration report

Secura features a Cal Audit Trail function to document the quality of each weigh-in procedure you perform. Each adjustment procedure, including any non-conformities, are recorded by the balance, can be viewed on the touch screen and, if necessary, can be transferred over the balance's interface to a computer or to a Sartorius laboratory printer.

Security by Password Protection

Secura comes with password protection to restrict adjustment of the balance settings only to authorized persons. If you set a password, all functions that could change the metrological performance specifications are inactivated.
scale password protection

Interactive User Guidance for Fast GLP/GMP Compliant Printouts Interactive
If you require traceable documents, Secura will guide you through the steps for obtaining GLP/GMP-compliant printouts. The novel user guidance will support you especially for working with traceable sample identification.

Used in conjunction with the Sartorius YDP30 laboratory printer, which is automatically detected by Secura, the balance generates printouts of the results on standard printer paper or on continuous labels.

Clean ability to Secure the Best Results
Cleanliness is one of the main prerequisites in the laboratory to prevent contamination and ensure work area safety. That's why Sartorius placed a premium on designing Secura to enable easy and thorough cleaning.

Sleek, resistant surfaces plus clear contours and few edges ensure that Secura will help you stay compliant with all hygiene requirements.
Easily clean your lab balance
No Risk Due to Temperature Fluctuations
temperture change effects weighing resultsTemperature fluctuations have an influence on the accuracy of your weighing results

This is why every Secura comes equipped with the internal adjustment function isoCAL that ensures consistently accurate results.

Secura can be configured to prompt you to launch this procedure or to have isoCAL take care of this as soon as an activation threshold is reached.

The Cal Audit Trail function records each isoCAL procedure performed so it can be traced for your quality assurance.
Transfer weighing results to your pc
transfer weighing results to your computerEvery 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 Secura saves you considerable time and effort in generating fast and reliable documents.

Secura substantially simplifies processing data in spreadsheets. How? After connecting the USB port on Secura to a computer, just open the Microsoft Office program you need. Secura 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 YDP40 printer is automatically detected by Secura. Thanks to interactive user guidance, Secura provides help in generating error-free printouts, for instance, by inputting the correct sample ID numbers.
Sartorius Secura Laboratory Balance
Secura comes standard with these applications
  • Checkweighing - Helps you zip through series of samples when you have to quickly determine whether each one is within a specific weight tolerance range.
  • Density - Takes the effort out of determining the density of a solid, irregularly-shaped object.
  • Weighing - In addition to this app, all Secura balances feature isoCAL, the fully automatic internal calibration and adjustment function engineered by Sartorius to ensure total accuracy.
  • Conversion - Takes care of the math when you need to convert a weight using a factor, say, to calculate the weight per unit area.
  • Peak Hold - Locks in the reading so you can later view the maximum force released in milliseconds when a switch is activated during an experiment, or the weight of a bulky sample that hides the display while weighing.
  • Unstable Conditions - Delivers rock-steady results when you have to weigh in an extremely unstable environment or measure the weight of a hyper little mouse that just won’t sit still
  • Percentage - Makes comparisons of samples easy when you need to determine their difference in percent from a reference standard.
  • Counting - Gives you the exact count when you want to know how many identical parts, such as tablets, are in a bag.
  • 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.

Need more accuracy? Do you need a 5 decimal place gram balance? The Sartorius Secura and Quintix semi microbalances are amazing. In the YouTube video above you will see the Sartorius Secura225D-1S semi microbalance [0-120g x 0.01mg] [120-220g x 0.1mg]. We highlight the intuitive operation using the SmartTouch user interface that is so easy to use you'll probably never need to reference the user manual. We also demonstrate the ergonomic draftshield and show how easy it is to dismantle the balance for easy cleaning.

Also you'll get a close up view of the new "collection container". The collection container is designed to keep the spill from entering the lab balance that could cause potential damage to the balance. Sartorius' revolutionary "collection container" features a rimmed design to keep the spill from entering if you happen to spill any liquid or granular samples while weighing.

If the Secura225D-1S is more balance than you need for your weighing application then be sure to see the Secura 125-1S, Sartorius Quintix125D-1S or Sartorius Quintix65-1S. Sartorius is our #1 selling laboratory weighing balances since they are the leaders in building high quality weighing instruments.
