Biotech and other life science researchers can increase their productivity by selecting one or more new laboratory balances from an innovative new line.

Sartorius (Gottingen, Germany) recently introduced the new Entris, a balance that focuses on the most commonly used weighing applications and dispenses with costly additional functions.

The line of Entris balances comprised 15 analytical and precision balances that cover a weighing capacity from 60 grams to 8.2 kilograms with a readability of 0.1 milligram to 0.1 gram.

The logical key assignment on the Entris and its clearly structured user interface make daily routine weighing much easier. Most models of the new Entris family are equipped with a monolithic weighing system featuring external adjustment or an internal, motorized adjustment function. This guarantees consistently accurate weighing results, which are displayed on the easy-to-read backlit, high-contrast display.

The Entris system, which can display information in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Polish, is equipped with applications for density determination, animal weighing, counting, conversion, and weighing in percent. The easily removable draft shield and stainless steel parts render the Entris quick and easy to clean.

TRAIL is most effective when delivered to the external membrane of a cancer cell, while Dox is most effective when delivered to the nucleus, so the researchers designed the system to deliver the drugs sequentially, with each drug hitting a cancer cell where it will do the most damage (Photo courtesy of Dr. Zhen Gu, North Carolina State University).
