Lab Equipment Repairs and Disposal

Do you have lab equipment (refrigerators, centrifuges, hot plates/stirrers, computers used in the lab, incubators, ovens etc.) that needs to be repaired, or is ready for surplus?

  • Transferred or relocated to another area.
  • Removed from service and ready for surplus.
