Laboratory Equipment Repair – Can we help?
Laboratory equipment repair is nothing less than a speciality for the skilled team of engineers Greasley Electronics in Leicestershire. We have built our entire business off the back of performing PCB repair for the past 30 years, and it’s something we are extremely knowledgeable about.
First and foremost, repairing electronic laboratory equipment is often significantly more cost-effective than outright replacement. Laboratories, whether academic or industrial, operate within budgetary constraints. The expenditure required to purchase new equipment can strain these budgets considerably. Repairing existing equipment, on the other hand, typically incurs lower costs, especially when considering the expense of procuring brand-new, technologically advanced alternatives.
Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility
In an era increasingly concerned with sustainability and environmental impact, the importance of repairing rather than replacing cannot be overstated. The production and disposal of electronic equipment contribute substantially to environmental degradation. Laboratory equipment repair helps mitigate this impact by extending the lifespan of existing resources, reducing the demand for new materials, and minimising electronic waste.
Preservation of Expertise and Familiarity
Laboratory personnel invest significant time and effort in mastering the operation and intricacies of specific equipment. Replacement often necessitates a learning curve as users acquaint themselves with new interfaces, functionalities, and quirks. Repairing existing equipment allows scientists and technicians to preserve their expertise and familiarity with the tools they rely upon, thereby minimising disruptions to workflow and productivity.
Maintenance of Calibration and Performance
Laboratory equipment often undergoes rigorous calibration and fine-tuning to ensure accuracy and reliability in experimental results. Introducing new equipment may necessitate recalibration processes, which consume valuable time and resources. Repairing existing equipment helps maintain established calibration settings and performance benchmarks, thereby upholding the integrity of experimental procedures and outcomes.
