Medical and Scientific Scales

Whether you are looking for scales that you can use for jewellery precision weighing or simply for weighing various ingredients in a laboratory, medical and scientific scales are available in a wide range of sizes and models. Many of them come with multiple functions and features, such as backlighting or easy-to-read display designs, so take your needs into account before purchasing medicine and science equipment supplies.


Medical scales are very similar to kitchen scales, with the main difference being their capacity. Most scales used for weighing medicines and other laboratory ingredients used for medical purposes have a capacity of 500 grams. Some features that you may want to consider include an LCD display with backlighting, auto calibration and auto zero tracking. Most medical scales are multifunctional, which means that you can use them for other purposes as well, including working with gemstones and jewellery or even in the kitchen for those recipes that require a high degree of accuracy when it comes to weighing out ingredients.

Pocket Scales

If you want some scales that you can easily carry along in a pocket or handbag, pocket scales are another type of scientific scales with high precision. Most of the times, the capacity ranges from 200 to 500 grams, with an accuracy of 0.01. Some uses you may have for pocket scales include helping you maintain certain diets, clinical medicine and jewellery and metal weighing. These scales are also handy if you need to weigh letters or other items you may need to post.


Medical and scientific scales are powered by batteries, usually AAA. Some models support rechargeable batteries, but in the vast majority of cases, you need to replace the batteries altogether when they die. Other similar pieces of medical equipment that also feature a density meter may come with a rechargeable battery and charger.
