In my experience, microbiological balances for product testing are usually
fully calibrated on a monthly basis.  However, daily checks are performed at
'use ranges'.....i.e., 0.1g, 1.0g, 10g, 100g.  This also forces a check on
balance level and cleanliness.  All results are recorded in a log book of
course.

        Does anyone have information on the pharmacoepial or GLP/GMP
requirements for
        the use of balances in microbiological testing?

        1.   frequency of calibration - daily weight checks or weight checks
only prior
        to use?
        2.   is it sufficient to use a balance internal calibration
programme or is
        there a requirement to use standard calibrated weights?
        3.   are there requirements for minimum sample weights, weighing
ranges etc.

        Thankyou
