Established Sample Weighing Accuracy Based from Outstanding Sensitivity

The UX420S Precision Scale from Shimadzu presents accurate weighing of particulate matter or other minute samples made possible by its 10 mg division size. Hard-wearing and constructed for use not just in laboratories but also even for educational institutions, production houses, or industrial facilities, the Shimadzu UX420S brings out close measurement values, ensuring cost-effective weighing for manufacturing purposes, daily laboratory tasks, as well as quality control processes. A similar units that you can consider is the UX6200H Precision Scale from Shimadzu. For a unit that presents higher resolution, users can check out the UX420H Precision Scale from Shimadzu.

Highly Reproducible Measurements for Valid Sample Weighing

Even if multi-users are running the Shimadzu UX420S, obtainiing results that can be reproduced is never a problem since it comes with a 8 mg repeatability value. As long as the same settings are carried out, the Shimadzu UX420S is an outstanding option for routinary weighing applications as it introduces close and almost unvarying measurement values throughout your weighing process. Scaling down time on transcribing and re-recording weighing values each and every time translates to saving more time for a more in-depth analysis of data. You can work with the UX420H Precision Scale from Shimadzu if you require a model with a higher repeatability value.

Ideal Weighing Solutions for Lab and Field

Deal with solids, liquids, and other sample types or work out in the field or in a lab through the Shimadzu UX420S laboratory scale that has maximum capacity of 420 g as well as a 108 mm weighing pan. Reinforce validity of measurement results through its external calibration feature for hassle-free manual calibration with approved test weights. Looking into heavier samples but also requiring a unit with the same 10 mg readability as this Shimadzu UX model? Select the UX4200H Precision Scale from Shimadzu or the PS 6100.R2 Precision Balance from Radwag instead.

Noteworthy Features to Consider for Easier Weighing

ISO compliant icon ISO Compliant

The laboratory scale stands by ISO standards, following stringent measures when it comes to preventative maintenance, calibration, routine testing, and more plus its print guidelines.

GLP Compliant icon GLP Compliant

Perform quality control measures on non-clinical data submissions with this Shimadzu balance model because it already renders GLP-compliant reports showing balance ID, time, date, and more to help with your checkpoints, protocols, and record keeping.

GMP Compliant icon GMP Compliant

Returning GMP compliant reports, the UX420S Precision Scale from Shimadzu presents reports with weighing time, operator details, and results included. Because of this, it makes a good top loading balance for testing and quality control on manufactured goods, foods, drugs, raw materials, and more.

Alphanumeric LCD icon Alpha Numeric LCD

The Shimadzu UX420S top loading balance ensures clear visibility of weighing data even if users are in poorly lit rooms. Having a durable and perfectly sized alphanumeric screen, this scale model displays crisp data readout even considering different angles.

Operational Excellence from A to Z

Save up more time and re-allocate this to top priority activities with the UX420S Precision Scale from Shimadzu. Backing up operational productivity by stabilizing and displaying weighing results in 0.7 seconds, this Shimadzu UX lab scale is a key to building up lab weighing output and enhancing your lab performance. Carrying over weighing results to different devices, computers, and printers will never be a problem as the precision scale has RS-232 and USB ports. You'll also never have to deal with reformatting reports ever again as this unit already follows the GMP, GLP, and ISO print format.

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.

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)

Display during standby Best for establishing administrative system to meet requirements of GLP/GMP/ISO9000. Calibration records can be provided with date and time.

Analog display modes

Full range

Bar graph clearly indicates the total weight (including the tare) as a portion of the balance capacity.


Select a target weight and tolerance. The display clearly indicates when they are reached.


Set an upper and lower limit. The display continually indicates whether the sample is within the range "GO", over range "HI" or under range "LO". Choose one of the two bar graph display modes.
