Quintix® is a user-friendly, highly accurate standard laboratory balance, redefining the meaning of easy for standard lab applications.

The intuitive operating design of Quintix® guides users fast with fail-safe confidence through the many weighing applications built into the balance, helping to enhance laboratory workflows. The new Sartorius lab balance is available in a choice of 12 models with weighing capacities ranging from 120 g to 5,100 g and readabilities extending from 0.1 mg to 1 g.

User-friendly weighing applications
The user interface of the Sartorius Quintix® balance was developed by Sartorius in teamwork with experienced lab users. All applications are shown as self-explanatory icons on the
Quintix® touch screen and can be precisely selected even when the user is wearing lab gloves.
The balance guides the user step by step through each weighing process, thus preventing operating errors. Quintix® features built-in applications that include weighing in percent, weighing under unstable conditions and weighing components; counting, mixing, check weighing; peak hold to determine the highest measurement in a series; density determination; statistics and conversion.

Automatic calibration and adjustment with isoCAL
Temperature fluctuations affect the accuracy of weighing results. This is why balances must be calibrated and adjusted at regular intervals as soon as ambient conditions change. The isoCAL combined calibration and adjustment function on the Quintix® alerts the user whenever a defined time or temperature limit has been exceeded and adjusts the balance automatically using an internal weight. Moreover, the Cal Audit Trail function documents every calibration and adjustment operation for 100% traceability in quality assurance.

Fully traceable GLM- and GMP-compliant documentation
All advanced laboratories today must provide GLP- and/or GMP-compliant documents and further process weighing data quickly and reliably. The Quintix® balance transfers its data directly over its built-in USB port to any computer in the lab, without requiring any additional software. As a result, weighing data can be easily and rapidly read into Excel or into any other program for further processing.

The highest metrological accuracy ensured by technology “made in Germany”
The Sartorius Quintix® balance has been put through its paces in more than 1,000,000 stress tests involving repeatability, linearity and temperature drift. Therefore, the balance guarantees the highest metrological quality and reliability of its weighing results.
