Unmatched Accuracy Coming from Superior Sensitivity

Gain great value for your budget without compromising weighing capability through the UW4200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu. Constructed with a 100 mg sensitivity, the Shimadzu UW4200S prompts accurate sample weighing even if working on manufacturing, industrial, or laboratory applications. Yielding close results, this balance warrants clear-cut weighing for manufacturing procedures, quality control measures, everyday lab tasks, and more. A comparable units that users can also consider is the UW8200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu. However if you need something with a higher readability, check out the UW2200H Precision Scale from Shimadzu.

Highly Precise Measurements for Valid Sample Weighing

A heavy-duty unit like the UW4200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu that comes with a 80 mg repeatability presents replicable results best for daily weighing applications. Even with multiple users managing the unit, the Shimadzu UW4200S brings out high precision weighing so long as similar weighing settings are followed. As it brings about close and almost unvarying measurement values, this balance saves users time when it comes to transcribing and re-recording data, re-allocating it to results analysis instead. Interested in a higher repeatability unit? Some replacements you may want to see include the UW2200H Precision Scale from Shimadzu.

Optimal Weighing Solutions for Laboratory and Field

The Shimadzu UW4200S allows you to examine 4200 g of load at maximum with its spacious 180 mm weighing pan. Incomparable accuracy and precision for the smallest quantities of substances is verified with the unit's external calibration feat, making it a more economical option compared to self-calibrating units. This laboratory scale presents traceability as it manually recalibrates using endorsed test weights. For tasks that examine heavy samples, possible alternatives to pick include the UW8200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu or the W3300-10K Precision Scale from Accuris with a higher capacity but the same readability as this Shimadzu UW model. A different model but with the same capacity as this top loading balance that you can get the UW4200H Precision Scale from Shimadzu instead.

Notable Features to Take Note Off

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

Adhering to rigorous measures when it comes to calibration, preventative maintenance, routine testing, and more, this top loading scale guarantees compliance to ISO standards as well as ISO print guidelines.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Do quality control measures on non-clinical data submissions with this Shimadzu precision scale as it already sends back GLP-compliant reports showing time, balance ID, date, and other relevant data to better help with your experiment or research checkpoints, record keeping, and protocols.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Producing reports compliant to GMP, the UW4200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu prints out reports with operator details, weighing time, and results included. Because of this, it makes a good balance for testing and quality control on manufactured goods, raw materials, drugs, foods, goods, and more.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

Whether working on field, in the lab, or even in facilities with not the best lighting conditions, the Shimadzu UW4200S top loading scale displays vivid measurement data even if you view values from various angles, assuring not just user-convenience but also, most importantly, error-free readings.

Operational Efficiency from Start to Finish

Free up more time and redistribute this to top priority activities using the UW4200S Precision Scale from Shimadzu. Supporting operational efficiency by stabilizing and displaying measurement weighing results within 0.7 seconds, this Shimadzu UW top loading scale is instrumental to achieving amplified laboratory productivity and fine-tuning your processes. Having RS-232 and USB ports, transferring weighing data or results to devices remotely close to the unit is is never a problem. No more wasted time reformatting reports again since this unit presents reports compliant to ISO, GLP, and GMP standards already.

The new line of Shimadzu top-loading balances are engineered with the innovative UniBloc mechanism which brings superior impact resistance unrivaled quick response, excellent stability and durability at the same time. Powerful features support any imaginable weighing application. UW Series comes with motor-diven built-in calibration weight and fully-automatic calibration functions.

UniBloc technology and benefits

The traditional core assembly of the electro-magnetic balance is replaced by a single part, the aluminum Shimadzu UniBloc. Digitally controlled wire-cut electric discharge processing makes it possible. This technology, which Shimadzu introduced in our EB-K precision platform balances as early as 1989, brings excellent benefits to the operator. Quick response, stability against temperature change, and outstanding durability. (Patented in USA in 1989, No.4799561, in China in 1991, No.12729, in Japan in 1995, No.1905686)
