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 MSA4202S-100-D0 offers 4200 grams weighing capacity with 0.01 gram readability.
This Sartorius Cubis Balance now comes standard with push-button automatic leveling with motorized leveling feet. Leveling the balance compensates for slant or unevenness at the place of installation. Laboratory precision balances must be perfectly horizontal to ensure consistent, accurate and reproducible weighing results. The Sartorius MSA4202S100D0 is equipped with an electronic tilt angle detection feature. If the lab balance is not level the Sartorius Cubis' display issues an alert on the weight indicator.
Cubis scientific lab 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.
Sartorius Cubis was developed for users who expect the best possible performance from a precision laboratory balance. Sartorius balances are known all over the world by metrology experts as the measurement instrument of choice for accurate consistent weight readings. Sartorius has over 145 years building precision weighing balances that are trusted globally.
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.

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.

Cubis is the most advanced laboratory balance we offer at Precision Weighing Balances. Click the video above and learn about this state of the art weighing machine.
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:
Optimal interchangeability or extension of modules
Shorter innovation cycles for individual modules
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
