The only scale we use is for weighing gross specimens to the nearest 
gm. We use a set of weights from 0.5 gm to 1 kg to calibrate an 
electronic balance. We also use a beam balance to balance centrifuge 
tubes, but as weight is relative calibration is irrelevant. We do not 
use an analytical balance.
