Weighing solids on weigh paper, transferring to expensive volumetric flasks, and manually filling error-prone glassware with liquid to the correct volume is a time-consuming and imprecise process. Every step of the way, there are opportunities to introduce contamination, produce inaccurate dilutions, and calculate incorrect concentrations. By weighing the components of a solution on a balance manually or with an automatic dosing instrument, researchers can make solutions with a precise concentration in a single vial.
