How is the Analytical Balance used for the production of Parkinson’s treatment?

In the late 19th century, scientists began to suspect that a lack of a chemical in the brain might be causing Parkinson’s disease. In the early 20th century, Dr. James Alzheimer identified an abnormal chemical in the brain of a patient with Parkinson’s disease. Although the chemical is known today as a beta-amyloid plaque, it was thought at the time that it might be the cause of the disease.

A group of scientists in Australia analyzed blood samples from people with this terrible disease who were being treated with levodopa, a drug commonly used to treat Parkinson’s disease because it increases dopamine levels in the brain. And by using the analytical balance, they were able to determine the amount needed or discover the pharmacologically appropriate dose, allowing it to be metabolized in the body and how it was distributed in the brain. These data will help clinicians improve the effectiveness of current treatment and develop new treatments.

Influence of the Analytical Balance

Researchers around the world are looking for new ways to treat Parkinson’s disease. One current area of research is analytical medicine, which uses study techniques to learn how drugs work in the body. This can help doctors improve the efficacy of drugs and develop new treatments.

In other words, Kalstein can offer laboratories the optimal equipment for the production of drugs that require accurate measurements, and the Analytical Balance is the fundamental machine, because its calibration is automatic internal (FA-EN), the electromagnetic force sensor and has thefunction oftare, counting and unit conversion .


Analytical balances are used in a variety of applications, including chemistry, biology, medicine and research. In chemistry, they are used to measure the weight of chemical elements in a reaction. In biology, they are used to measure the weight of cells and tissues. In medicine, they are used for weighing medication. And in research, they are used to measure the weight of atoms and molecules.

They are extremely accurate and reliable. However, because the weight of objects may vary slightly, it is important to take several readings to ensure that the measurement is accurate.

The operation is very simple, the operator places the object on one of the pans and then uses the unit of measure to measure the weight of the object. If the object is very heavy, the operator can use a second scale to measure the weight of the object.
