Tips for Picking a Dependable Laboratory Equipment Supplier

Follow these tips for picking a laboratory equipment supplier.

Quality lab equipment is a must for the success of any lab. As such, it is crucial to pick the equipment supplier carefully. Failing to do this may result in bad quality equipment that will negatively impact the efficiency and success of your lab’s experiments or tests. In certain cases, buying from an untrustworthy supplier might even jeopardize the health and safety of your patients, customers, and laboratory staff if the equipment doesn’t work correctly. To buy equipment that satisfies the needs of your lab for the best price, follow these tips for picking a laboratory equipment supplier.

Find a Lab Supplier that Offers a Wide Selection of Products

Most dependable laboratory equipment suppliers will stock an extensive selection of products from different leading lab equipment brands. Their stock will usually include anything from general laboratory equipment, like pipettes, to special machinery to help provide labs with everything they’d need, such as moisture analzyers. Also, their products will probably include both new and refurbished equipment to help provide quality options to help satisfy the needs of labs with different budgets. A direct distributor for a manufacturer means they have extesnsion knowledge of the equipment and will be able to offer training, calibration, and repair services.

Buying from a Trusted Source

Buying laboratory equipment like balances, pipettes, test weights can be overwhelming.  This process can be made easier by consulting with your calibration service provider.  The Lab People have a team of sales specialists that can narrow down the choices required for your particular application.

It might seem easier to go online to find the right balance but sometimes you might not be buying from an authorized dealer.   You may save a few dollars by going this route but the support offered for training and repairs will not be there in the future.  Our team can offer specialized deals and discounts that combine new equipment that comes ISO calibrated.  This means that once the unit arrives it will be installed and ready for use quickly.

Read the Lab Supplier’s Shipping or Return Policies

If you plan on buying any lab equipment, it is important to find a lab supplier that provides prompt shipping services and a reasonable return policy. To do so, ask the supplier and take a look at their different policies and options.
