The BM series of micro analytical balances, which includes four models that display weight values with a readability of 0.001 mg, are designed to make the world of micrograms accessible to a wider range of users. In developing the BM series, A&D put emphasis on high practical utility as well as performance, rather than fancy bells and whistles that only make the instrument unnecessarily expensive.
One good example that embodies this concept for the BM series is that all models come standard with a built-in fanless ionizer for quick and easy removal of static electricity, which seriously destabilizes measurement. Filter papers, disposable weigh boats, and plastic centrifuge containers can all become charged just from normal handling. Charged powders can be displaced, causing cross-contamination. To eliminate such electrical charge, you are simply required to hold the target object in front of the ionizer for a second or two before starting measurement.
Employing the direct-current (DC) method, the BM series ionizers needn't use a fan to deliver ions, and thus causes no breeze, which allows for neutralization of even extremely fine powders without disturbance. If you look for a similar feature (often offered as an option) from other manufacturers, chances are you will have to pay a much higher price!
The four 0.001 mg readability models in the BM series have different advantages for users with different priorities. Depending on your applications and budgets, you can opt for higher stability/repeatability, larger capacity, or greater affordability.
