Remanufacturing consists of turning a
previously owned instrument into a virtually like new product with a new
product warranty and performance certification and NIST documentation. Do
not confuse "refurbishing" with remanufacturing. MTX does not
refurbish any instruments ever. Our first quality remanufacturing process
takes several days as opposed to wiping down an instrument and calling it
Like New Refurbished.
Many of our select instruments, that become
remanufactured, are actually instruments we have previously sold new to
customers which we have serviced and supported exclusively over many years.
We have a history on each instrument that our customers purchase so we can
support instruments endlessly, economically and without effort.
All MTX remanufactured instruments go through
a very selective process to determine which previously owned instruments are
worthy of turning into new instruments. Remanufacturing consists of
completely disassembling an instrument along with all of its sub assemblies
including circuit boards, optic assemblies (if applicable), and drive
components. All fasteners are discarded along with all lamps, belts,
filters, motors, printers, foot pads, gaskets, o-rings, seals along with any
other pertinent components which have been deemed in the past to be failure
After an instrument
has been completely stripped down to its bare parts, the chassis, top covers
and all housings are stripped of any and all grease, contamination, paint
and oxidation. The instrument is then re-coated, to a factory like new surface both inside and out. Once the paint/coatings have
hardened, the instrument is reassembled just like a new instrument with all
new Stainless Steel metric fasteners, new gaskets, lens, filters, drive
belts, printers, lamps, etc.
instrument is reassembled, it goes through a complete optical, electronic
and mechanical recalibration and thoroughly tested on our quality control
computer using our Spectrosoft instrument test program which exercises the
instrument endlessly for a minimum of 24 hours. The instrument is
then put in an environmental test chamber and run overnight. It is
then retested, rechecked for calibration and accuracy and finally packages
in our exclusive foam end cap boxes ready for shipment. Our
remanufactured instrument are flawless, they look identical, if not
better, than a brand new instrument. You can not tell that an MTX
remanufactured instrument was previously owned and the value and quality
Instruments that we have remanufactured
3-10+ years beyond purchase and warranty.
The initial warranty
cannot be beat! We also offer ongoing service contracts and have supported
Microplate instruments since 1982.
