Moreover, it can be completely disassembled to conveniently clean the glass parts in a dishwasher. The entire draft shield is removable if you need to install the balance inside a glove box if room does not permit the glass draft shield due to height restrictions.
The Practum 213-1S is Sartorius latest generation in the class for affordable laboratory milligram weighing and replaces the Sartorius AZ153, which was discontinued in April 2013 and Sartorius AY123, which had production stopped in October 2012. Both the AZ153 and AY123 used a strain gauge loadcell for the weigh sensor and many people especially in the gun and ammo reloaders complained about the drift. The Practum 213-1S uses a magnetic force restoration (MFR) weighing technology and delivers accurate and consistent weighing results and less prone to all the creep and drift typical of a loadcell especially when weighing to a milligram. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale.
The Sartorius Practum is an entirely new lab balance with superior weighing performance and features. Everything is new from the electronics, weigh sensor, housing and display that makes older Sartorius models like the AZ153 or AY123 are almost like a milligram scale from the ages of the dinosaurs.
Whether you need to weigh in laboratories, vocational training facilities or classrooms with a Sartorius Practum® series balance you'll always have just the right equipment.

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.
