Sell Used Lab Equipment

There are many websites that help you sell various items online, but it’s probably best to stick to using websites that are geared toward the scientific community, like  or These used lab equipment websites are not only trustworthy, but they will allow more qualified buyers to see the products that you’re trying to sell. 


Repair It

When used lab equipment breaks down it’s easy to consider selling it or tossing it out, but repairing it may give you a greater return on your investment. It’s important to research exactly what is needed to repair the item and how much money it will take to fix it. Weigh this against the cost of replacing your laboratory equipment and determine if a repair is the best use of your money. 


Donate to a School or Reseller
