  Sartorius GP8201 Toploading Balance
All the features of the Sartorius CP Series Toploading Balances at a fraction of the cost.  First-class technology and quality at an affordable price.

Sartorius designed the GP8201 with a big focus on the wholesale metals marketplace.  The GP8201 comes standard with 6.9" diameter stainless steel dish perfect for weighing medium to large lots of precious metals, but the GP8201 is not legal-for-trade.

The new Sartorius GP8201 rivals the competition in the 8200 gram with 0.1 gram readability category.  Cutting edge design, loaded with features by Sartorius, a company synonymous for the finest precision weighing balances in the world.

Now made in the USA.  While everything these days seems to be outsourced Sartorius rethinks the business model and now makes the GP Series in the USA.  Engineered in Germany, assembled in Arvada, Colorado and backed by a 3 year manufacturer warranty by Sartorius North America located in Edgewood, New York.

The new GP8201 is redesigned from the ground up with all the features needed for today and ready to support tomorrow's weighing applications.  Features like an integrated backlit with large LCD to display your weighing results even in poorly lighted work areas.  Standard RS-232 for data acquisition output or purchase the optional Sartorius printer for paper printout.

When it comes to precision weighing excellence, few names compare with Sartorius and Precision Weighing Balances is your source for deep discount prices.  Purchase a Sartorius and you'll learn it's a weighing experience.  Fast, stable results and impeccable quality.
