Guide to Purchasing Analytical Instruments

Prior to purchasing an analytical laboratory instrument, a number of criteria should be considered by the individual or group responsible for the purchase.

While the initial price is a factor, it is not wise to base a buying decision solely on this or any one criterion. Operating costs, instrument specifications and performance, manufacturer reliability, and many additional factors should all be researched and considered.

Micromeritics has created an unbiased analytical instrument purchasing guide in a checklist format that includes a comprehensive set of questions that should be asked and understood prior to any analytical instrument purchase.

The guide contains categories with questions related to hardware, data handling, performance, and after-sale support. There are also questions that help determine the manufacturer's credibility and reliability.
