I’m new to the forum and I’m hoping to find an answer to this. After searching broadly online for a scale that will measure fountain of a milligram I am just finding scale that will weigh 1 milligram. I must take a 2mg capsule and measure out either 1.5mg or a little more of the powder within (1.75mg?). I need something at sight sensitive. I discovered ONE range that will weigh micrograms yet it is far outside of my budget (almost $1000).

You are watching: How to measure mg of powder

If anyone knows of a good sensitive range for measuring powder that can measure components of a mg ns would considerably appreciate the help.

Thank You!

On the whole, the best option is to gain someone to it is provided you through the product you actually require in the right dose.

There"s a different approach which you can 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 get you 3/4 the the initial material.

 

It is likely that whoever filled the capsule v 2 mg the material currently used this approach; as you have actually discovered, it is an overwhelming to weigh 2 mg precisely.

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

2x3=66/4=1.5

Idea: If doses can be stored, mix contents of 3 capsules and split the contents in 4 parts; offers you four doses.

If it is a capsule, normally it is no recommended to break that and divide that content. 

You should speak through your doctor first about it and also re-check the dosage.

Do not usage others prescribed medicine!

I really hope you do not wanna usage it to range potent narcotics....

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

On reflection, I"m not sure this is a good idea discussing editing and enhancing medical preparations.
