Advantages and Disadvantages of Used Lab Machines

Buying used plasma equipment can save a lot of money, but there are advantages as well as disadvantages.


  • Cost: The Initial Purchase is Cheaper
    It may seem simple, but this is the biggest advantage of purchasing used equipment. All of the advantages of used equipment stem from the financial benefits. Purchasing a used system gives you the opportunity to purchase additional systems or allows you to purchase a system that otherwise might not fit into your budget.

  • Disadvantages

  • No Optional Features
    When purchasing new equipment, you have many options to chose from, especially on our larger plasma cleaning systems. However, when purchasing a used system, you aren't able to add any optional features to the system.

  • It’s More Difficult
    Purchasing new is easy; simply contact the manufacturer, tell them what you want, and wait for it to arrive. Because the exact system you want may not always be available, it takes more time and effort to find a used system that will suit your needs. We believe there is a place for both new and used equipment. That’s why we sell both and work hard to refurbish the used plasma equipment that we offer.

  • Maintenance History
    You can never be completely sure how meticulously a used unit has been maintained. Has it been calibrated properly as recommended by the manufacturer? We recommend our clients obtain maintenance records for all used equipment before making a purchasing decision.
