Considering Purchasing Certified Pre-Owned Liquid Handlers: Exploring the Benefits


Are you in the market for a liquid handler for your laboratory but hesitant to invest in a brand-new model? Certified pre-owned (CPO) liquid handlers might be the solution you're looking for. In this blog, we'll delve into the advantages of considering CPO liquid handlers over new ones.


1. Cost-Effectiveness
One of the most significant benefits of opting for CPO liquid handlers is cost-effectiveness. These refurbished instruments are typically available at a lower cost of new ones, making them an attractive option for budget-conscious laboratories.


2. Quality Assurance
Despite being pre-owned, Copia Scientific’s certified liquid handlers undergo rigorous inspection, refurbishment, and testing processes to ensure they meet manufacturer standards. This quality assurance provides peace of mind regarding the reliability and performance of the equipment.


3. Shortened Lead Times
Purchasing a new liquid handler often entails waiting for manufacturing lead times. In contrast, CPO liquid handlers are readily available, significantly reducing acquisition lead times and enabling faster implementation in your laboratory.


4. Warranty and Support
Many reputable suppliers of CPO liquid handlers offer warranties and comprehensive support services. This coverage can include technical support, maintenance, and even training, ensuring optimal performance and longevity of the equipment. Copia Scientific is now offering a ONE YEAR SERVICE CONTRACT with the purchase of a liquid handler.


5. Sustainable Option
Choosing certified pre-owned liquid handlers aligns with sustainability goals by extending the lifecycle of existing equipment. By giving these instruments a second life, you contribute to reducing electronic waste and environmental impact.
In conclusion, certified pre-owned liquid handlers offer a compelling alternative to purchasing new equipment. With cost-effectiveness, quality assurance, shortened lead times, warranty and support, and sustainability benefits, they provide a viable solution for laboratories seeking efficient and reliable liquid handling solutions.


If you're considering upgrading your laboratory equipment, exploring certified pre-owned options could be the key to achieving your objectives without breaking the bank.
