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
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 224-1S 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 224-1S 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 224-1S or Practum 224-1S. Not sure what you need? Call the experts at Precision Weighing Balances to review your weighing application.

Precision Weighing Balances is an Authorized Valued Distribution Partner for Sartorius Laboratory Products & Services. Be very leery who you purchase your balance from since incidents have occurred where people have purchased Sartorius balances online advertised as brand new but instead were refurbished, demo or broken units. When they sent in the balance to Sartorius they had absolutely no warranty. If someone tells you they are a reseller, sub-dealer or agent they are NOT an Authorized Sartorius Dealer and your warranty could be in jeopardy. Why take chances when buying the world's best scientific laboratory balance when you can purchase from Precision Weighing Balances an Authorized Dealer.
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
In the YouTube video above we discuss calibration and the steps to perform internal calibration and also external calibration. During this demonstration we use the Quintix1102-1S and the procedure is similar for all the Sartorius Secura Series whether you have a precision, analytical, semi micro or microbalance Secura model. Calibrating the Sartorius Secura224-1S analytical balance is simple and easy and this lab 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 Secura model at an additional cost.
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.
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
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.

Best Results - Quality Documentation Made Easy
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.
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.
No Risk Due to Temperature Fluctuations
Temperature 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
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 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.
