Buying Used Lab Equipment: Three Things to Consider

by REUZEit Team | Apr 22, 2021 | Uncategorized

Purchasing used lab equipment is a resourceful way to stretch your budget. If you decide to move forward with purchasing pre-owned lab equipment after weighing the pros and cons, here are some things to consider.


Condition of Used Lab Equipment

The first thing you’ll want to know about used lab equipment is the condition it’s in. How old is this piece of laboratory equipment? How long has it been in use? Was it refurbished? Is it barely used and mostly new? Is it missing any parts? These are all questions that influence the price and reliability of the product. These important questions can give you a better indication of whether the lab equipment for sale will meet your needs within your budget.


Price Check Other Sources

There are many resources for buying science lab equipment,  and prices will vary accordingly, so it’s in your best interest to do your research. We recommend shopping around in order to find the best price on equipment of similar condition. It’s far better to invest more money in a reliable product than to save money on an item that could end up as broken lab equipment that needs to be replaced soon after purchasing. 


Length of Warranty

When used laboratory equipment is sold with a warranty, it gives you an extra boost of confidence that you’re making an informed decision. REUZEit offers warranties on select items that have also been rigorously inspected to guarantee superb performance.
