    Need a decent supplement scale - +/- 10mg


    I have just been using 1/4 tsp for stuff, but when 300mg is a serving +/- 50 is quite abit of sway there.

    What do you think of the HP-100x?

    HP-100X Pocket Scale By: My Weigh

    I need to measure out powders...llike 300mg +/- 10mg would be safe enough. I'd also like it to go high enough like 70g to measure out malto/WMS/dextrose etc.

    What do you guys use?

    I have a My Weigh 300-Z digital mini scale that measures in 100mg increments. Works great.

    Edit: oops didn't see 10mg increments

    It depends how accurate you need to dose. In retrospect I wish I got the 10mg scale, and then just bought a big kitchen scale for everything else. I have the 100mg scale, and I usually multiply everything by 50 to calculate it for a capping run, which let me do small doses rather accurately. I would probably go with http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/m...ket-scale.html

    I guess either of the scales I posted links to should be 10mg right? .01g = 10mg...or am I having a bad day with math?

    You're doing just fine. And I'm throwing up a review as we speak, thanks for reminding me.

    myweigh mx-50's are good- we use them for a variety of applications, and it has a resolution of .01 grams- but it only goes up the 50.00 grams....
    ecolab (sartorius group) good scale for 1 gram up to 4 kg- very, very accurate for mid-range apps
    any sartorius analytical balance- they have scales that will measure all the way down to mcgs; not cheap

    The above can also be easily calibrated as well- and are not very sensitive to vibration, etc.

    Always remember to cut any air source in the room off when you are weighing, checking, or calibrating a scale- may skew the measurement or balance

    always weigh, check, or calibrate on a level surface- a pocket level will suffice

    check out USP <2091> (determining weight for dietary supplements) for weighing methods- they have some good insights

    check out USP <616> as well- the first part will give you a way to determine bulk density very easily- this will help you figure out how much powder can go into any given capsule

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to rms80 again.


    Thanks!
