Critical to the operation of laboratories are the safe and effective weighing of potent powder compounds, active pharmaceutical ingredients and nanomaterials. In the age of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API’s) and High Potency Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPI’s), the equipment challenges for vented balance enclosures are even more critical today. The same three overriding engineering principles still apply:

  • Containment
  • Weighing Accuracy
  • Functionality

This paper engineers from Flow Sciences address these issues and discuss the primary benefits of the vented balance enclosure.
