Used Lab Equipment On Sale
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
For many start-up labs, embarking on a new research project can be exciting. There are discoveries to
be made, people to be helped, and problems to be solved. Before them lies endless possibility and
potential. However, as the project moves from initial question and into the testing phase, the cost of
setting up a proper lab can get very high, very fast. Funding is rarely abundant and soon lab managers
are faced with tough decisions. So if you're under funded, where do you turn?
New Life for Used Lab Equipment
Over the last 15 years, a niche industry has risen to meet that demand; used laboratory
equipment. As the biotech industry grows, demand for second hand lab equipment increases and has
jumped nearly 7% over the last decade. In its infancy the used lab equipment market began with
foraging dumpsters outside of science and technology companies. Those with a good eye could
retrieve functional used lab machines and peripherals. It's now matured and expanded to gently used
inventory directly sourced.
Refurbished lab equipment can come from manufacturers, or from dealers as overstock, or sometimes
from laboratory liquidations. Companies like The Lab World Group, connect buyers with the used lab
equipment saving the consumer significant money over their brand new counterparts, sometimes as
much as half the cost. The money saved can then be reinvested into the project.
It’s not just new labs on a shoe string budget that benefit from the refurbished lab equipment.
Established Labs can also feel the financial pinch. Labs often need to choose which equipment will have
to stretch for another year and what must be replaced, sometimes that can put the productivity at
risk. Saving money with refurbished lab equipment can extend the life of the project and keep things
The Lab World Group
How do you know if it works?
Working with a reputable dealer is key, as reliability could be a gamble. The Lab World Group’s highest
priority is vetting their inventory of laboratory equipment. That means taking the time to double check
the used lab instruments as they come in, making any necessary repairs, testing the functionally for an
extended period, then having them professionally decontaminated and certified prior to resale. All of
these steps provide assurances to both the buyer and the seller. A properly refurbished and vetted
machine can keep operating for years. Used lab instruments enjoy a return rate half that of the brand
new machines, saving time and costly shipping.
Buying used lab instruments has a very real ecological impact as well. Electronic waste is a growing
problem in the US, especially as the biotech market continues to grow. A second life in a new lab
keeps a reliable tool out of a landfill and minimizes ground contamination. Extending the life cycle of
these used biotech instruments is a great way to curb some of that waste. Participating in the used lab
equipment life cycle doesn’t just benefit the buyer. Labs looking to free up space, and clear our surplus
supplies, can recoup some of their initial investments and regain some capital.
The Lab World Group facilitates a variety of options for laboratories looking to unload their used lab
equipment. From brokerage where the equipment stays at the facility, acting as the broker with an
intense marketing campaign to aid in the purchase and sale of the used lab equipment. Offers can be
accepted or rejected on a continual basis. If a lab chooses to consign their used laboratory equipment,
it will be relocated to a temperature controlled environment where The Lab World Group will hold on
to until a purchase and sale has been finalized.
Lastly, there is the option of outright sale. The Lab World Group will organize the pickup, packaging
and shipment of the used lab instrument once an agreement has been put into place. For many
reasons, it just makes good business sense to explore used lab equipment at the outset, and work with
a dealer you can trust. If you have a lab equipment list you would like to share please don't hesitate to
