What is a pharmacy weighing scale?

A pharmacy weighing scale can refer to a floor scale, analytical balance or other form of weighing scale used for weighing in a pharmacy setting.

Weighing scales can often be found in pharmacies for customers to use, and the scales for pharmacies from Marsden are robust, accurate and easy to use. According to the National Obesity Forum, pharmacies are best placed to offer support on weight, so a pharmacy weighing scale is crucial.

Marsden medical scales for pharmacies are Class III Approved.


What is a Class III Approved scale?

A Class III Approved scale is built, tested, verified and calibrated to a specific standard. The Non-Automatic Weighing Instruments (NAWI) directive sets these standards, and states that all scales ‘used in the determination of mass in the practice of medicine patients for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment’ must be Class III Approved.

Class III Approved scales are rigorously tested by an EU Notified Body, providing assurance to the user that the scales are accurate, reliable and deliver repeatable results. Find out more here
