Repair Laboratory Equipment

When an instrument breaks down in your laboratory, it can create enormous disruption to your work. An equipment breakdown prevents you from carrying out your time critical research, it delays patients results and it can hold up production.

We can carry out repairs on a wide range of laboratory equipment, even if you do not have a Service Maintenance Agreement with us. However, we always recommend users regularly service their instruments with us to prevent break downs which can cause great inconvenience to you and your colleagues.

Good to know

We have a team of highly qualified engineers covering the whole of the UK who are able to offer on-site repairs. Some of our engineers are factory trained by leading manufacturers such as Hawo, Vestfrost and Nuve. Alternatively, you may wish to take advantage of our lower ‘back to base’ rate if it is practical to send the instrument into our workshop and you are not in a hurry to have it repaired.

We hold a stock of literally thousands of spare parts in our London warehouse. We even have some discontinues spare parts that you will not be able to obtain from the manufacturer.
