I’m new to the forum and I’m hope to find an answer to this. ~ searching generally online for a scale that will certainly measure fractions of a milligram I am only finding scale that will weigh 1 milligram. I need to take a 2mg capsule and measure out either 1.5mg or a little much more of the powder within (1.75mg?). I need something super sensitive. I found ONE range that will certainly weigh micrograms however it is far external of my budget plan (almost $1000).

You are watching: How to measure milligrams of powder

If anyone knows of a great sensitive scale for measuring flour that can measure components of a mg ns would significantly appreciate the help.

Thank You!

On the whole, the best option is to gain someone to it is provided you v the material you actually need in the best dose.

There"s a different technique which you could find helpful.

Mix the 2mg of material with, say, 98 mg of something inert- lactose is regularly used.

Then sweet out 75 mg the the mixture.

That will obtain you 3/4 the the original material.

 

It is most likely that whoever fill the capsule with 2 mg the material already used this approach; together you have discovered, it is an overwhelming to sweet 2 mg precisely.

The other technique would be to spread out the powder out evenly in a line and also measure 3/4 the it.

2x3=66/4=1.5

Idea: If doses have the right to be stored, mix materials of three capsules and also split the contents in four parts; provides you 4 doses.

If that is a capsule, normally it is not recommended to rest that and also divide that content. 

You must speak through your doctor an initial about it and re-check the dosage.

Do not use others prescribed medicine!

I really hope you perform not wanna use it to range potent narcotics....

If the ready is a mix in the capsule it could not be evenly distributed.

On reflection, I"m not certain this is a great idea discussing editing medical preparations.

I would actually favor to remove this post. Is it feasible for me to perform this on mine end? If not can the staff carry out so instead of relocating it come chemistry? give thanks to You
