Service Center

The negative effect of downtime is more than what you see in your own lab.

The purpose of a service contract is to ensure an instruments’ availability to run at full capacity. Most laboratories should target a > 97% uptime. The cost of downtime—the inability to run critical assays—can be devastating to productivity, product quality, and return on investment in your lab.

A priority sample not evaluated can hold a manufacturing batch from release, delaying hundreds of thousands of dollars of material from reaching your customers. An upstream approval that is not granted due to lost instrument time can affect many other departments and employees in the value chain by delaying their actions and losing precious time for desired results.

Service contracts are a fiscally sound decision to ensure your lab is running at peak efficiency. They are also cost effective in any critical operation to minimize loss in the lab due to downtime and to prevent erroneous results through contract supplied preventative maintenance options.

Our contracts provide priority response and access to remote experts to minimize delay time for resolution of the problem. If your lab values analyst time, contracts provide savings that can calculate to several thousand dollars in each occurrence over “call for service as needed” situations.

Below is a direct example of the savings provided by a service contract when compared to a “call for service as needed” situation.
