A Note on USP Chapter 800 Compliance

OHAUS balances are easily cleanable and made of chemical resistant materials, such as ABS plastic for the upper housing, cast aluminum for the bases, and 18/10 or 304 stainless steel for weighing chamber or pan surfaces. ABS plastic has good resistance to sodium hypochlorite (< 20%), excellent resistance to hydrogen peroxide (100%), and good resistance to ethyl and propyl alcohol; however, ABS plastic has very poor resistance to benzyl and methyl alcohol, which should not be used for disinfection as they may damage the housing over time.
