  • Marsden M-420 Digital Portable Scale

    What is the M-420?

    The Marsden M-420 is a lightweight, portable adult floor scale. It’s an easy to use scale, virtually identical to our M-430 Floor Scale, but has a much higher accuracy (50g increments as opposed to 200g). This makes it perfect when a highly accurate weight reading is required.

    Why should I choose the M-420 over the M-430?

    The M-420 and M-430 are both robust, portable floor scales. They are both Class III Approved and MDD Approved, therefore approved for weighing in a medical environment for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment.

    Where they differ is in their accuracy. As you can read here, the accuracy of the scale you use should be determined by what you are using it for. The 200g accuracy of the M-430 is suitable for many applications, however for more serious applications - such as weighing children, or weighing adults for critical treatment, the 50g accuracy of the M-420 will be more appropriate.

    The 50g graduations will allow you to get a much clearer picture of changes in patient weight.

    Who uses the M-420?

    The M-420 is ideal for all hospital wards and departments, with its robust build suitable for constant daily use. Accuracy to 50g means nurses can get high accuracy weight readings for monitoring, treatment and diagnosis purposes. This high accuracy is also essential when weighing diabetic patients, calculating weight for specific antibiotics, for prescribing medication and for weighing children.

    What other features does the M-420 have?

    The M-420 is covered by the Marsden 4 Year Warranty.

    This easy to use floor scale has a non-slip surface, with a robust casing meaning it can withstand years of use. It's light enough to be portable, too, and an optional carry case is available.

    To use the scale, simply tap the surface with your foot and it switches on. The digital weight reading can be reversed, so it can face towards or away from the user. The Hold function means the weight reading stays on the screen even after the patient has stepped off.

    The M-420 also has a BMI feature - you can enter the height of the patient, and then, when the scale reads the weight, BMI is automatically calculated.

    Bluetooth connectivity is available for this medical weighing scale, meaning weight data can be instantly transferred from the scale to a central patient database, via mobile, tablet or PC. This makes the M-420 ideal for speeding up patient weight data capture, and makes it the perfect professional scale for telehealth initiatives.

    The scale is powered by 6x AA batteries for over 100 hours of use (6000 weigh ins).

  • Marsden M-430 Floor Scale

    What is the M-430?

    The Marsden M-430 is a lightweight, portable adult floor scale. It has been designed to be one of the most robust portable medical scales available, and is Class III Approved and MDD Approved.

    What is a Class III Approved scale?

    Class III Approved scales are built, tested, verified and calibrated to meet a specific standard. The NAWI directive states that all scales ‘used in the determination of mass in the practice of medicine for the purpose of monitoring, diagnosis and medical treatment’ must be Class III Approved. Approved scales are subject to rigorous testing by an EU notified body. This provides assurance to the user of the scales that they are accurate and reliable for medical use.

    What does MDD Approved mean?

    MDD Approved means that the device meets strict safety requirements enforced (in the UK) by Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) is one of three directives that cover all medical equipment intended to be used to diagnose, prevent, monitor or treat.

    With the exception of hoist weighing attachments (for example, the Marsden M-600) it is not a requirement for weighing scales to be MDD Approved, only Class III Approved. However most Marsden professional medical scales are MDD Approved as an extra seal of quality and reliability.

    Who uses the M-430?

    The M-430 scale is robust and long-lasting meaning it the ideal floor scale for Outpatients departments in hospitals, as well GP surgeries. Pharmacies favour a hard-wearing, easy to use scale like the M-430 for the NHS Health Check programme. The optional carry case means the scale can be used in the community without fuss too.

    Why should I choose the M-430?

    The M-430 is covered by the Marsden 4 Year Warranty.

    The M-430 has a 220kg capacity and graduations to 200g. It is a highly dependable, digital alternative to dial scales, and widely used around the world. Its reinforced aluminium structure means it's built to last far longer than the average medical scale.

    There is a simple tap-on featuring meaning there’s no bending down to switch the scale on. The scale has a non slip surface and adjustable levelling feet. The scale is powered by 6x AA batteries for over 100 hours of use (6000 weigh ins).

    There is optional Bluetooth connectivity available for transferring weight data to a patient database. Marsden does not provide software for receiving weight data from your scale.

    For more information about the Marsden M-430 call 01709 364296 or send us a message here.

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

 

Which pharmacy weighing scale is right for me?

Marsden have listened to input from pharmacists across the UK and the result is a professional range of weighing scales fit for purpose in Pharmacies.

Marsden Pharmacy floor scales are robust and are highly accurate Class III Approved scales. The M-430 and M-550 are portable floor scales which can be used anywhere in the pharmacy, and are battery powered.

The Marsden MBF-6010 is a body composition scale, and therefore will provide visitors to pharmacies with far more readings that just weight. Marsden body composition scales measure BMI, Fat Mass, Fat Free Mass, Total Body Water and more.

For highly accurate pharmaceutical weighing, our range of analytical balances feature options with Class II Approval and accuracies to 0.001g - the TX Series and TW Series.
