Proper measurement is important. Some of our products can be dangerous or toxic when mishandled. We also recommend you measure your product on receipt to confirm total weight or volume.
How to measure powder products?
Scoops measure volume and scales measure mass. We strongly recommend you do not to use a “microscoop” as the density of powder can vary.
We recommend using a precise milligram scale. Milligram scales with a precision of ±3mg are available on Amazon.com for <$20. Please read the following article to learn more about scales and precision:
Once you have confirmed the total powder weight you can create a solution for more accurate volumetric measurement. See the question below on how to make a chemical solution.
Why powder products are preferred?
Powder products are preferred because they are less expensive and because they are a pure material. But they require more effort to accurately measure.
How to measure liquid solution products?
Liquid solutions are measured by volume. Volume can be measured by a graduated beaker, graduated pipette, etc. All of our liqui products come with a graduated pipette for measurement. If you need an additional pipette you can find them on our Lab Supplies Catalog.
Why liquid solution products are preferred?
Liquid solution products are preferred because they are more convenient to measure and do not require additional preparation.
