Your Trusted Source for Used Lab Equipment

The Alt Difference


As North America’s largest provider of premium refurbished lab equipment, we offer one of the strongest warranties in the business. Every item we sell includes a 90-day warranty and can also be upgraded to a one-year warranty.
Coverage begins the date of delivery, giving you plenty of time to install your instrument in your lab under the warranty period. During this time, if you have any questions about your coverage or need support, simply contact us and we’ll be here to help.

This policy does not cover consumable parts.

Lifetime Support

We’ve got your back! We understand that any disruption with your lab equipment impacts your timelines and research, so uptime is critical. That’s why all of our instruments include LIFETIME support. Regardless if your equipment is past warranty, if you need support let us be your first call. With our extensive product knowledge, our service engineering team can support your equipment at any stage of its life cycle. From 8am to 8pm eastern time, you’ll always reach a live person. We make it our priority to keep your equipment running so you can spend your time on what’s most important…your research.

Price Match Guarantee

Every quote we provide comes with a price match guarantee. Our goal is to provide you with high-quality instruments at a fair and competitive price. If a refurbished laboratory instrument is advertised or you’ve got a valid quote on the same model and condition at a lower price from another source, simply share the quote with us so we can earn your business. Contact our team for more details on our industry-leading Price Match Guarantee.


Our dedicated in-house systems engineering team has over 60 years combined experience across a full spectrum of lab equipment. ALT engineers refurbish, test and service each instrument to ensure it meets OEM operating specifications. We ship all items with their inspection date, a copy of the test results, if applicable, and each engineer proudly adds their name to the instruments they serviced. We also thoroughly clean and carefully pack each refurbished laboratory instrument to ensure it arrives in working order, ready to be installed in your lab.
