Welcome to American Laboratory Trading, Inc.

Low Prices, High Quality

We offer used lab equipment at 50–80 percent off the cost of comparable new equipment. Our engineers—who count on over 60 years of combined experience—test and service all equipment to make sure manufacturer specifications are met. We ship all items with inspection date, engineer’s name, and a copy of test results, if applicable. We also thoroughly clean and carefully pack each instrument to make sure it arrives safely, ready to be installed in your lab.

Outfit Your Entire Lab with ALT

We offer a full range of laboratory equipment, from general items like vortexers and water baths to sophisticated analytical instruments, including HPLC, GC, spectrophotometers, and more. We are the largest reseller of premium used lab equipment in the U.S. and stock more than 12,000 items in our warehouses.

The Manufacturers You Trust

We sell equipment from the manufacturers you trust—Agilent, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Beckman, Sorvall, Perkin Elmer, Eppendorf, Shimadzu, and many more.

We’re also an official Agilent Technologies channel partner. We offer Agilent factory refurbished 1100 Series HPLC systems, 6890 GC systems, as well as components.

Up to a 1-Year Warranty on All Equipment We Sell

As sellers of premium refurbished lab equipment, we offer one of the strongest warranties in the business. Every item we sell comes with a free, standard 90-day warranty, which in many cases can be extended to one year.


Our cross-country network of trainers and engineers are ready to help you install and get up and running on a variety of analytical instruments, including LC, LC/MS, GC, and GC/MS. We also offer low-fee installation support via telephone. Ask your sales representative for details.

We Buy Used Lab Equipment

Do you have any idle or surplus instruments taking up space? We’ll pay you and pack and remove the equipment from your facility, making it as easy as possible for you to maximize your return on investment. We also offer excellent trade-in value, which you can apply to equipment you need.
