Lab equipment, particularly testing equipment, is typically going to have a long-life cycle. However, there will come a time when the system is no longer easy to maintain or where there is a risk of inaccuracies in the functioning of the system.
As part of the job of a lab manager, ensuring quality equipment is upgraded or replaced at the first signs that the cost of repairs and maintenance is escalating or that the equipment itself is not performing correctly is always important. Finding a way to replace costly equipment like a genetic sequencer and stay in the budget is not always an easy task.
Is New Essential?
In either a planned upgrade or replacement or in dealing with an unexpected failure of the current system, buying a quality used or refurbished genetic sequencer is a very cost-effective solution.
By shopping with the top used and refurbished medical and analytical equipment companies, it is possible to choose a new model with all the latest in testing features and capacity. These models can offer savings of up to 50% or more over new equipment, but still, have all the features and the latest in technology.
For most labs, there is no need to purchase new equipment. In using a reputable, established used equipment dealer you have the confidence in knowing they will stand behind the equipment they sell. Most of these companies will offer a warranty on any refurbished equipment, which provides you the confidence in knowing the sequencer will arrive and be in like-new condition.
The key to getting the best deal in a used or refurbished genetic sequencer is to do research on the company making the sale. Look for businesses that have decades in the industry and that offer the top manufacturers with newer models of equipment.
