Shimadzu AP Series Features
Fast Weighing Response: Shimadzu’s advanced one-piece UniBloc AP weighing sensor reduces the weighing response time by approximately 20% compared with the previous model, significantly improving weighing efficiency.
Optional Built-In High-Performance Ionizer: The STABLO AP ionizer is mountable in APW, APW-D, and APX models, and eliminates the influence of static electricity, making powders and objects easier to handle and weigh.
Ensure Data Reliability with LabSolutions Balance Software: Integration with LabSolutions Balance enables automatic saving of weighing data in compliance with electronic record (ER) and electronic signature (ES) regulations. In addition, LabSolutions is compatible with a host of Shimadzu’s analytical instruments, including chromatography, mass spectrometry, molecular spectroscopy, and elemental analysis, allowing weighing data to be combined with data from these instruments in reports.
Buffer Solution and Sample Recipe Functions: For the new APW and APW-D models, recipes for 13 commonly used buffer solutions are included as standard, and new buffer solution recipes are easily registered, with preparation instructions and guidance shown on the display. Sample recipes can also be registered, increasing the efficiency of repetitive weighing tasks.
Time-Saving Accessories: A multi-stand is included with 0.01 mg models, supporting easier weighing with weighing paper, into micro tubes, and of long rod-shaped samples. A numeric keypad makes entering numeric values quicker, and by scanning a barcode with the barcode reader, sample IDs, as well as user IDs and passwords, are inputted.
