Is Preventative Maintenance a Top Priority in Your Lab?

Posted: March 9, 2012

Accuracy, durability, and consistent performance should be top priorities when it comes to your lab equipment to ensure you get efficient results. You may have a piece of equipment that you have used and loved for many years and it could be starting to look worse for wear. This could potentially cause operational malfunctions that could greatly impact the accuracy of your results. The best way to avoid this is to keep up to date with your service, repairs, and preventative maintenance so you will get the optimal performance for the instrument and also your lab.

As well as the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), there are third party companies who also specialize in service and repair as well as the re-sale of refurbished equipment. The following are a few companies who offer service and repairs for your lab equipment;
