From advances in online purchasing to a surge of new clientele, the future of used lab equipment distribution is bright for the informed and well-prepared. Read on for a glimpse into what distributors can expect and incorporate in the coming years of change and growth. 

80/20 Will Ring True

Amongst large lab equipment manufacturers, most of their revenue comes from a slim portion of their clients. This means that nowadays, when online shopping trumps the art of cold calling, smaller accounts are no longer a primary target since it’s simply too expensive to call on less lucrative leads. Since these smaller customers will continue to be nixed from the radar of large manufacturers, proactive used lab equipment distributors are anticipated to act on the opportunity to gain some market share. We can expect more manufacturers to start leaning towards the pricing and service distinctive of independent distributors.

The Rise of Independent Used Lab Equipment Distribution

Amazon may have a hold on over 90% of online product searches, though it’s ultimately up to the consumer to find what they’re looking for. Manufacturers are now recognizing the power of independent lab equipment distribution, most notably due to their power in bringing products to market without succumbing to the monopolies of modern healthcare. Additionally, independent distributors typically employ tight-knit teams who nurture and value client relationships – rather than simply hunting down the next best lead.

Lab equipment is constantly evolving and aiding the research used to make new discoveries in fields such as medicine, biotechnology, and science. As technology advances, the need for more sophisticated equipment inevitably increases, and unfortunately so does the cost. Luckily, there are other methods to obtain the best equipment to meet your needs at the lab without maxing out your budget. Here are some key strategies to help you find affordable lab equipment!

Special Offers and Sales

When purchasing from lab equipment distributors, make sure to check multiple websites for the item you’re interested in. This allows you to compare prices and figure out which distributor has the best offer. Special offers are typically reserved for older lab supplies rather than new models, but don’t count these out! Just because a piece of lab equipment is older does not mean it is not worth investing in. 

Used Lab Equipment

Purchasing used laboratory equipment is one of the most budget-friendly ways to stock your lab while still using high-quality lab equipment. This can sometimes be a tricky process, due to the risks associated with potentially faulty equipment. For this reason, we recommend purchasing from a trusted seller that specializes in used lab supplies, like REUZEit. If you decide to purchase used lab equipment, reading our Tips for Buying Used Lab Equipment post is a great way to start. 

Refurbished and Surplus Lab Equipment

Purchasing refurbished or surplus lab equipment is another option that can save you money. Refurbished equipment is equipment that started to malfunction and was sent back to the manufacturer or vendor for repair. After the repairs have been performed, the item is generally as good as new, in terms of performance. Due to this process, these items are then restocked and sold at a discounted rate. If you’re in need of new models of equipment, this is the best way to get a good price on the newest technology.

When a lab or manufacturer has a surplus of science lab equipment, they will either auction it off to another seller or sell it themselves. They often sell it at a discounted rate in order to free up space in their lab or warehouse, or to move the lab equipment quickly. Surplus lab equipment is typically new or lightly used. At REUZEit, you can find tons of surplus lab equipment for sale at discounted prices! 

How REUZEit Can Save You Money

Investing in laboratory equipment for your scientific research is completely a necessary cost, but it doesn’t have to be an expensive one!

Since 2014, REUZEit has been an influential name in the industry. Not only have we provided countless biotech labs with lab equipment all over the world, but we have reduced landfill waste and worked to give used lab equipment another chance. As our company grows and our recycling and refurbishing methods progress, we are now expanding our services into the medical industry! REUZEit is now broadening our horizons and accepting and selling used medical equipment.

The Refurbished Medical Equipment Industry

With the past couple years being quite “medically focused” due to COVID-19, the need for medical equipment has risen tremendously. From medical equipment needed to develop vaccines to cold storage that then houses these life-saving vaccines, the medical industry is at an all time high for medical equipment.

The refurbished medical equipment industry is projected to reach $20.28 billion by 2025. It is safe to say that this industry continues to grow and provides medical facilities, labs, and hospitals with a cost-friendly option for purchasing medical equipment.

This tremendous growth is also due to the fact that many medical facilities appreciate alternatives to buying brand new medical equipment. These facilities can benefit greatly from the cost-effective method of choosing to buy used medical equipment, compared to simply purchasing new and highly expensive equipment.

REUZEit: The Future of Refurbished Medical Equipment

With the medical equipment industry being so large, there are many different pieces of equipment that are extremely sought after. The main types of refurbished medical equipment include:

  • Medical imaging equipment
  • Operating room & surgical equipment
  • Patient monitors
  • Cardiology equipment
  • Urology equipment
  • Neurology equipment
  • Intensive care equipment
  • Endoscopy equipment
  • IV therapy systems

These are life-saving tools that every medical facility, hospital, and surgery center should have access to.

As REUZEit enters the industry of refurbished medical equipment, we are looking to make a change. We will implement our landfill last mentality into our medical equipment operations just like we have done over previous years in the biotechnology industry. We are looking for key clients to join our eco-conscious efforts and participate in selling their used medical equipment, purchasing used medical equipment from us, or even both! Accessing this life-saving equipment is a plus, so why not add on earth-saving efforts while you’re at it?

Purchasing lab equipment in need of repair can be tricky because repairs can outweigh the cost of the item itself. This is why items like this are often priced so low. So how can you tell if used lab equipment is a worthy investment? There are a couple of measures that can be taken to ensure you’re not purchasing used lab equipment that will become a budget sucker. 

 

Lab Product Condition

At REUZEit we value transparency with our clients and customers. For this reason, we take special care to assess and categorize our products based on their respective conditions. Our lab equipment categories are as follows:

 

Like New Lab Equipment: These products tend to be given through surplus programs. They have not been used much, if at all.

Used Lab Equipment: These products are used, but still in good condition. Many of these items will come with a 30-day warranty & 100% parts and labor.

Equipment For Parts or Not Working: These products are not in working condition as a whole but contain parts that can be repurposed to repair other products.                        

Lab Equipment in Need of Repair: These products are not currently working but can be in working condition with the help of a quick repair. 

 

Determining Repair Costs

Identifying the part that needs repair is the key to determining repair costs. Some of these parts can even be found on the REZUEit website. From here, you would just need to do research on whether the repair would need to be done by a professional or could be done on your own. Consider the cost of the tools needed to repair the item, the time it would take to repair the item, as well as the value of the working item once it’s fixed. 

 

Resources for Repairing Lab Equipment

There are many services available that specialize in the repair of used lab equipment. Zefsci is one of the main brokers who services our Mass Spectrometers. Their services include maintenance, service contracts, repair and compliance for most Mass Spectrometers, Liquid Chromatographs, Gas Chromatographs (HPLC/UPLC, GC, LC-MS-MS, GC-MS), and other analytical instruments.

Fume hoods have been an essential piece of laboratory equipment since the first prototypes using local chimneys were made in the 1800s by Thomas Jefferson; Thomas Edison refined Jefferson’s designs in the late 1870’s. In the early 1900s, a new sophisticated design was developed, one that resembled a long cupboard at working level height with a vertical rising sash. Fume hoods have evolved throughout the last century and have done wonders to keep scientists safe from chemical fumes. 

Purpose of Fume Hoods

Fume hoods work to ensure the safety of lab personnel while working with hazardous materials. They accomplish this by continuously funneling airflow away from the user through a laboratory exhaust system. When used properly, fume hoods can safeguard people and their environment from toxic gases, explosions, and spills.

Types of Fume Hoods

The most typical fume hood is an item of lab equipment that resembles a cupboard that has a clear barrier with a small opening, allowing users to put their arms inside the protected workspace. There are also glove box fume hoods that are used to handle more dangerous chemicals. These fume hoods offer even greater protection since the workspace inside is completely contained. For this reason, you must use the protected gloves attached to the lab equipment when handling anything inside this fume hood.

How to Save Money on Fume Hoods

At REUZE it, we carry a variety of new and used fume hoods and accessories. They include classic used fume hoods, glove box fume hoods, overhead air blowers, hood enclosure safety cabinets, and more. Our products are highly reliable and can often be purchased with a 30-day warranty. We also offer financing options on our used lab equipment so that you can fit the lab equipment you need into your budget.
