PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OHAUS Corporation, a leading worldwide manufacturer of analytical, precision, portable and mechanical balances and scales, proudly announces that its Explorer line of analytical and precision balances won Laboratory Equipment magazine's 2013 "Readers' Choice" Award for  best balance.  The Explorer was selected by the magazine's readers through an electronic survey, in which they were asked to choose products that lead the industry in technology.  The fifth annual Readers' Choice Awards celebrates "excellence in product design and performance for the tools and materials used by scientists and engineers in research laboratories" in 15 distinct categories.

"We are extremely proud and honored to receive this award, as it further validates our efforts to build a balance that marries precise performance with ease of use," said Jean-Yves Chever, General Manager, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, OHAUS U.S. "It is especially meaningful that it was decided by professionals in the scientific community who use the Explorer daily to meet their laboratory weighing and measurement needs."

The OHAUS Explorer series of balances is the most intelligent and intuitive product line ever produced by OHAUS.  Explorer balances are highly sensitive and produce precise, repeatable results.  Each balance is equipped with many modern features, including four touchless sensors which enable hands-free operation to boost efficiency and extend product lifetime, a modular design in which the display can be separated from the weighing base for maximum flexibility, as well as an antistatic draftshield and AutoCal™ internal calibration system. Finally, Explorer's 14 application modes can facilitate much more than basic weighing, such as parts counting, check weighing, pipette adjustment and totalization, among other functions, making it a multi-functional resource for many laboratory processes.

The Explorer series will soon expand, welcoming new models that further extend the product family's ingenuity.  Among the new additions are high-capacity models with capacities up to 35kg that can satisfy higher capacity weighing needs, analytical models with motorized draftshield doors that can be operated solely with the touchless sensors, as well as external calibration precision models for a more traditional approach.
