Secondary market is not strange to us, it’s a place where people sell idle items and get needed items. It will derive second-hand market in all walks of life, so does to used laboratory instruments. With the rapid economic development and continuously new technology introduction of China, the upgrading speed of various lab instruments is becoming faster and faster. And many large lab instruments will devalue for multiple factors, especially for large enterprises who have higher upgrading requirements. Those all belong to formation reasons of the used laboratory instruments market. However, used laboratory instruments market always not that hot in China, why? Henan Lanphan helps you to analyze mentioned question.
Data showed that America is the most concentrated country in used laboratory instruments market. In China, because of the improvement in consumption concept, many enterprises and person begin to realize that practicability and cost performance should be the most concerned question when purchasing used laboratory instruments, not brand. Although used laboratory instruments is not an attractive thing for rich and large units, it’s an ideal choice for startup company who are in low water.
The high price of new lab instruments is the most important factor to spring up used laboratory instruments market, plus constantly expanding research and technical needs and slowly product update period, buying second hand laboratory equipment is good for lower cost and safeguard production. But second hand laboratory equipment market does exist problems such as irregular management system, disorder supply channel and worrying after-sale service, which all restricted the healthy development of second hand laboratory equipment market. And domestic customers did meet problems when buying second hand laboratory equipment as low production efficiency and easy to breakdown. So how to better purchase second hand laboratory equipment?
Indifferent from new lab instrument, we need to have a detailed inspection and understanding of second hand laboratory equipment’s function, specification, service condition even year of leaving factory. Following factors you should think of:
①Quality. Buyers can’t holding the attitude of cheap is cost-efficient, they should know that quality is the most important thing. They’d better take a detailed performance inspection to make sure second hand laboratory equipment’s accuracy, working efficiency and other aspects are in good condition.
②Reason. One is the production date of used laboratory instruments is early and can’t satisfy factory’s needs; the other is factory close down or transfer. No matter which reason, the used laboratory instruments have worked for a long time, it is more reliable.
③Price. Generally speaking, price below half off has better cost performance.
④After-sale service. The warranty period in contract should beyond six months, buyers can purchase extended warranty contract(1 year), along with equipment maintenance. Henan Lanphan warmly remind you that no matter new lab instruments or second hand laboratory equipment, maintenance is really important to lengthen service life. If lack of maintenance file, and its maintenance warranty condition is worse, you should deliberate to buy it.
