Sartorius sets the standards for all others to follow: Cubis, the first series of laboratory balances that feature a completely modular design.  User-configurable and customizable to changing applications.  Cubis from Sartorius offers faster and more accurate weighing results for the lab.  The Cubis MSA8201S-000-D0 offers 8200 grams weighing capacity with 0.1 gram readability.

The Cubis precision balances are controlled by application software with interactive operator guidance. Once you open a menu or select an application, brief instructions shown on the display will guide you through the menu or application step-by-step. At each step along the way, the display shows only those options that are relevant to your process; this helps prevent unnecessary "detours" and enables you to reach your destination more quickly.

The MSA8201S000D0 meets the requirements of protection class IP54. The IP protection only applies to the balance housing and not to the AC adapter.

Since the launch in 2009 of Sartorius Cubis professional lab balances, the Cubis Series has become the benchmark for use in regulated sectors that impose the highest requirements, such as in global pharmaceutical labs. Sartorius has been the innovative leader in developing the latest scientific precision weighing instruments. It all started over 145 years ago in 1870 when Sartorius went into business by setting up his precision mechanical workshop and later pioneering and inventing the short-beam analytical balance that revolutionized work in research labs around the world.

Featuring top weighing technology, Cubis from Sartorius goes far beyond the usual standards of the premium laboratory balance segment.  Cubis is the first custom-configurable lab balance, and meets – and exceeds – Sartorius’ strict requirements for Advanced Pharma Compliance.  Specially tailored to operators’ needs, its application oriented user interface and innovative features make operation of the Cubis uniquely fast and error-free.  Cubis is the new benchmark for accurate weigh results.

Standard Features:

  • MSA Display features a high-contrast TFT touch screen 5.7" graphic display for clear and easy viewing.  Display is tilt able and control unit detachable.
  • Q-Level – The first balance in its class with automatic leveling
  • Q-Pan – Off Center load compensation reduces off-center loading errors, enables
  • Cubis to be designed with an extra-large weighing pan.
  • Q-Comm – provides maximum connectivity. Three standard interface ports (RS-232, USB, Ethernet).
  • Q-Guide – novel, wizard-supported User/Task Management for easiest operation – even when the most complex weighing tasks need to be performed.
  • Advanced Pharma Compliance makes Cubis ideal for use in regulated areas. Alert messages and reminder functions with user-definable action hierarchy for leveling, minimum sample weight, calibration and adjustment.  Fully automatic calibration and adjustment with isoCAL, GLP-compliant, user configurable printouts
  • All Data, such as user base data or tasks can easily be transferred by SD card from one Cubis to another.
  • Applications include mass unit conversion, SQmin function, isoCAL function, Density determination, statistics, calculation, averaging, formulation, percent weighing, time-controlled functions, totalizing, second tare memory, counting and over/under checkweighing.
Looking to weigh under laminar-flow conditions with a lab balance? Consider purchasing the optional weighing pan, called Q-Grid weighing pan (accessory YWP03MS), that features a grid mesh. The optional Q-Grid weighing platform allows the user of the balance with a larger pan with the same laminar flow as safety weighing cabinets, workbenches, or even laboratory hoods without restricting the performance of the balance. Weighing applications often are made easier using the Q-Grid grid pan for pharmaceutical labs weighing procedures.

The Cubis was developed for users who expect the best possible performance from a laboratory balance. Sartorius balances are known all over the world by metrology experts as the measurement instrument of choice for accurate consistent weight readings.

When you are shopping for a new balance we are the pros. Nobody on the World Wide Web is focused more on balances, scales and weighing accessories with a more comprehensive and detailed web site offering customers all the information at a mouse click away. Ever wonder why other companies offer so little details about the balances? It's probably because they never even opened the box and turned on a balance Give us a call with any technical question or need assistance in product selection and we'll be happy to help you and recommend the best balance for the money When you call we'll know you by name, not account name When you ask a question, we can answer the most technical and sophisticated applications.

The Sartorius MSA8201S-000-D0 precision lab balance is made in Germany and one of the pre configured Cubis models Sartorius USA tries to keep in stock. To check availability give us a call because if the MSA8201S000D0 is not in stock then there is a typical lead time of 5-6 weeks to have Sartorius AG build another unit. Another alternative model to consider would be the Sartorius ENTRIS8201-1S.

sartarius cubis balances

The new Sartorius Cubis has been designed for users who always need the best, but who want to invest only in what is necessary.

Cubis: The most sophisticated weigh to focus on what is necessary

With Cubis, you will always stay at the cutting edge without having to invest in completely new equipment.  This is what makes the Cubis modular design so special, with a number of unique advantages:

  1. Optimal interchangeability or extension of modules
  2. Shorter innovation cycles for individual modules
  3. Faster development of additional modules

Apart from aspects strictly involving metrological specifications, preparing for and performing a weighing procedure and meeting the relevant regulatory standards are gaining ever-increasing importance.

The ratio between the steps of the actual measurement procedure and the accompanying steps are decisive criteria for the efficiency of work sequences, especially for complex and frequently recurrent applications.  In designing Cubis, Sartorius Mechatronics focused on this major aspect.

The new Q-Guide enables tasks and individual work sequences to be quickly configured for error-free performance.  The Cubis software and user interface eliminate the detours so you can get down to business.

Once you have defined a task, you are interactively guided straight to the settings needed for your application.  Irrelevant information is hidden.  Only the application mode you select is displayed, making navigation even easier.  Just touch the USER key to gain access to User|Password Management.  TASK enables you to select defined tasks directly.

sartorius MSA display
Q-Guide user interface: The reference for fast and targeted navigation

All Cubis controls are easy to use, clearly designed and logically structured.  Their user guidance features prevent time-consuming and cost-intensive operating errors.

The MSA display and control unit shown above features a high-contrast TFT touch screen for clear and easy viewing, even of complex work sequences.  Different sets of colors enable you to customize the screen to your individual needs.  Clearly identified touch keys featuring positive click action let you effortlessly control the main basic functions of the balance.  This ensures fast and error-free operation.

You can adjust the tilting angle of the display and control unit to ensure optimal viewing at all times.
sartorius advanced weighing technology

In a choice of three display and control units, Cubis meets the requirements of different operating concepts. It covers the entire range of laboratory applications from simple weighing right up to management of complex work sequences by means of defined tasks and the User | Password Management Menu.

MSA - the non plus ultra Top-of-the-line technology and information design.  Touch screen featuring high-resolution color TFT for high-contrast display of texts and graphics.  Outstanding operating convenience and display quality, especially for complex applications that require substantial text input.  The optimal features and equipment to meet the very highest requirements, for example, in the pharmaceutical industry.

MSU - classic and universal High-resolution, generously sized, monochrome graphic display and keys that feature positive click action and precise activation of functions.  For users who prefer to combine classic key-operated control with the widest range of performance features.

MSE - pure and simple weighing Large, high-contrast liquid-crystal display, easy-to-understand menu guidance with short text prompts; clearly structured keys for precise activation of functions.  It offers the optimal basis for users who need to weigh with the highest accuracy, but have lower needs in terms of complexity of a weighing process and in data management.


The quality, reliability and precision of a Sartorius balance are legendary.

And Cubis lives up to the legend: it sets new benchmarks in accuracy, response time and repeatability.

Unique monolithic weigh cell

Cubis incorporates the second generation of the world’s only monolithic weigh cell manufactured exclusively by Sartorius.  And these exceptionally rugged weigh cells have become even more compact and precise.

The first five-digit toploading lab balance

Cubis is the first standard toploading semi-microbalance featuring full resolution all the way up to 220 g.  As a result, its footprint takes up to 25% less space compared with conventional lab balances of the same resolution.  Unique worldwide, the Sartorius monolithic weigh cell is what makes this unbeatable combination possible in the first place: compact design, resolution of 0.01 mg and weighing capacity of up to 220 g.

off center weighing
The first lab balance with Q-Pan off-center load compensation

Cubis is the first lab balance that compensates for errors caused when a sample is off-centered on the pan.  The Q-Pan feature offers you two advantages: it significantly reduces off-center loading errors, and thus enables Cubis to be designed with an extra-large weighing pan.

off center weighing

The first balance with automatic leveling: Q-Level

Q-Level combines novel sensors with the most advanced display technology, making it easier and faster to level the balance accurately.  A standard feature of Cubis MSA and MSU display and control units, interactive prompting guides you during manual leveling.  While Q-Level is active, the display shows you all the information you need: the position of the air bubble as well as prompts so you know which leveling foot has to be turned in which direction (MSE only with an alert message).

Q-Level also provides the option of fully automatic, motorized leveling at the touch of a key. Leveling could not be easier or more convenient than this.
