Microgram scales are complex devices that can be purchased through laboratory equipment supply outlets and many restaurant equipment supply stores. As microgram scales are highly specialized, many users turn to online laboratory and restaurant supply sites as well as scale manufacturer online sites.
A microgram scale, often referred to as a "microgram balance," is a device that is able to weigh astonishingly tiny masses. A high quality microgram scale can determine weights as low as 1/10th of one millionth of 1 gram, measuring the mass of such tiny items as an eyelash. These highly specialized devices can be purchased at a variety of outlets, both online and at brick-and-mortar stores.
