Instrument downtime causes additional cost, especially during high workloads. Reduce downtime due to equipment failure with preventative maintenance. Preventive maintenance reduces the risk that an important instrument is offline when needed.
GLP requires that instruments in a lab subject to regulatory system checks have a documented preventive maintenance program. Overlooked preventive maintenance can be easily found in an audit.
GLP requires that laboratory instruments operate within manufacturer’s specifications. Instrument performance might decline over time as parts and components age. LI‑COR’s Verify Normal Operation Tests and PM-Reports are designed to ensure the instruments are working within manufacturer’s specifications.
Instruments subject to inconsistent or no maintenance might have a shorter lifetime. Regular preventive maintenance reduces the likelihood of costly emergency repairs.
Preventive Maintenance is also predictive maintenance. Our experienced Service Engineers and Sales and Support Scientists can anticipate upcoming problems and provide advice for taking corrective action and help to avoid instrument failures.
Please contact your local LI‑COR Biosciences representative to order Support Agreements or Preventive Maintenance contracts.
All Support Agreements feature a preventive maintenance check as detailed below:
